Canada out, Votto returning

As you already know, Team Canada was eliminated by Italy in the World Baseball Classic last night. That means Joey Votto will be back in camp, likely within a couple of days.Votto did very well in his two games for Canada by batting .556 (5-for-9) with one homer and two RBIs.

Here’s a quote from Votto’s press conference after the game.

 Q.  Almost kind of a surreal moment right now?  Obviously no one expected this to happen tonight.

JOEY VOTTO:  “Yeah, no question.  I’m really devastated.  I mean, sure, it’s just a baseball game and everything, but when you do it for a living, and you are playing for your country.  And, you know, I was really excited for this tournament, and to leave in two games, you know, like I said, its going to take time to recover.”



Do you think this means cuts sooner? A lot of these non-roster guys who are competing for a spot have been playing 1B.

I hope Joey doesn’t take the early exit too hard. I thought that he represented both his country and the Reds very well during the classic.
I look forward to seeing him back in Sarasota.

he got robbed by denorfia last night

I was very surprised that Team Canada was eliminated.
