On Joey Votto

Finally, Joey Votto has been freed. With every at-bat, he’s making everyone wonder why he wasn’t called up to the majors long ago.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. Sounds like Krivsky wanted to pad the record as much as possible, even without there being any real chance of contending this year. He wasn’t sure how Votto would perform and opted for the safe bet in Hatteberg at the expense of Votto’s progression or the additional prospects that Hatteberg would command in a trade. It’s pretty irritating to say the least.

  2. I have followed Joey since he started in Dayton. It is great to see him in the majors. Hopefully the extra minor league experience has helped his defensive skills. From what I have seen so far, he is doing great.
