Re: BP on Votto's contract and hard feelings over his...
Every single player in the Majors are trying to get 'theirs' on payday. Why should Phillips be treated any different just because he's publicly man enough to admit it? I venture to say there's not a single person on this forum that hasn't harbored similar feelings when passed up for a promotion or made to wait in line at work while someone else gets prioritized ahead of them. He's hardly unique in this aspect. These are feelings probably every single person here has had at one time or another.
I, for one, appreciate honestly from athletes. It's refreshing not to hear politically correct, PR-guided soundbites.
Probably wasn't a smart thing to say, but honest nonetheless.
