Teammates make gentlemen’s bets between each other all the time in sports. But none of them are as crazy as the recent one between Cincinnati Reds teammates, Joey Votto and Zack Cozart. Votto bet Cozart that he would get him a donkey if he made the National League All Star Team. Yeah you read that correctly. A freakin’ donkey. Well it appears as if Votto might have to honor his bet with Cozart and in fact get him a donkey because Cozart is having himself one impressive first half to the 2017 MLB season thus far and is currently leading the votes for NL shortstops. Here is the full story on this odd bet between these two teammates.

Cozart is doing so well, I picked him up this year to replace my hurt and struggling shortstop, Trevor Story, on my Yahoo Sports fantasy baseball team and have not looked back. So in order to honor Cozart's hot start and to appreciate this crazy bet between him and Votto, here is a look back at some of the memorable scenes from the Shrek movies trilogy involving Donkey.
