My Baseball Fantasy: Joey Votto
Private League: lost, 4-6 (24-35-1 overall, 8th place out of 10 teams)
Public League: won, 6-2-2 (30-27-3, 6th out of 12)
My Player of the Week: Joey Votto (First Baseman, Reds) with 3 home runs, 8 RBI, 7 runs, 1 stolen base and a .429 batting average
It was an interesting week. In the private league, I lost but moved up the standings. In the public league, I've moved into playoff position - very happy about that.

The Canadian Votto was my top draft pick in both leagues. He's finally living up to promise. He comes from culinary stock (forgive the pun): Dad was a chef, Mom a sommelier and restaurant manager. He won the Lou Marsh Trophy as Canada's athlete of the year in 2010.
