Joey Votto is Just Fine

It’s unbelievable that I am about to tell you about how Joey Votto, 31, needs a bounce back season. That’s right, the very same guy who in eight seasons holds a slash line of .310/.417/.533.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto was on Intentional Talk today before the Reds-Cardinals game, and he did his interview with Kevin Millar and Chris Rose dressed like a Mountie, hitting every Canadian stereotype you can imagine. This is pretty amazing.
