Re: I wonder what the players think now...
I highly doubt Joey Votto has moved on from this.
In regards to your "us against them" assertion, I saw or read nothing to suggest this coming from the players. Jay Bruce's comment was certainly not suggestive of some sort of grudge, or chip on the shoulder towards the fans. He merely made an observation about how tough we can be as a fan base because we've had our hearts torn out so often.
Wow. If Rosecrans intended to vilify both the fan base and one of the team's biggest contributors with one series of paragraphs, he sure hit the mark.
People with initials for first names always seem like jerks.
