Default Joey Votto is my new favorite baseball player

What he said to ESPN:

Quote:
"I don't like the Cubs," Votto said. "And I'm not going to pat anybody with a Cubs uniform on the back. But because he made that really cool play, it turned out to be a really cool experience. I'm really glad we got the win today."
However the douche in the article Donald Brown slams him. For those who don't know Brown works for Yahoo! and had a brutal article in April about Votto.

I'll post Brown's thoughts here:

Quote:
What a leech and a sorry excuse for an All-Star.

Even if the harmless Cubs weren't 10 1/2 games behind the first-place Reds in the NL Central, you're supposed to check the intraleague rivalries at the door for the All-Star Game. Ask ... oh, anybody who's ever made a team for either side.

Votto obviously is new here.



And, how did he help the NL win? Oh, yeah, he didn't. Votto went 0 for 2.
To see the earlier article it's here: Answer Man: Joey Votto talks bowling, mustaches, hockey, Italy - Big League Stew - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

Hey, I like the old school thinking. Screw the other team.

I can't believe I read that whole article on Votto from April.

That had to be the stupidest line of questioning I've seen in a while

Votto is a beast? Check
Vottto hates the Cubs? Check

Yep. He is good in my book. Us Reds fans love him and can't wait to see the Reds front office to sign him to a big(years) contract soon.

Reds first baseman Joey Votto says he shows his feelings about Chicago Cubs fans by refusing to sign autographs for them.

The Toronto native declined to congratulate Cubs outfielder Marlon Byrd following his impressive defensive play during the all-star game Tuesday. Afterward, he told ESPN that he doesn't like the Cubs.

Votto clarified his remarks Friday, saying he has great respect for the Cubs. He added that he "can't say as much for their fans."
