Votto’s got no love for his All Star Teammate

Posted by mvetack on July 15, 2010

Yea, so what were on the same team for one game.  The Cubs Suck and Marlon Bryd Sucks!  Well those were not the exact words or thoughts of All Star first baseman Joey Votto on Tuesday night, but they might as well have been.  In a world of Red Sox (Ortiz) receiving Home Run Derby pitching from a Yankee and Dodgers smiling and high-fiving with Giants, it is refreshing to see a guy who knows his rivals and acts like it.

Marlon Byrd made a possible game saving play throwing out Big Papi at second base for the second out of the 9th inning.  He deserved all the credit in the world and got it from just about every one on the team.  Here is what NL teammate Joey Votto had to say about the stinkin Cubbie making such a good play.

Via ESPN (found on thebigleaguestew.com)

“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.”

Votto was obviously glad to see his rival make such a “cool” play but that doesn’t mean hes gotta show him some love.  Votto is really making it harder and harder for me to keep him from climbing on my ‘New favorite player’ meter.

    Cubs suck today. Cubs sucked yesterday. Cubs will suck tomorrow. It’s nice in a world of so much uncertainty to know that one thing for sure.
