Re: Votto being Votto: Holding Himself Accountable
Players go through slumps (every single one). Joey Votto is a great player and even in a slump is better in the lineup than the alternative. Hopefully tonight is the indicator that he is getting out of it. I for one, love the fact that Joey acknowledged that he knew he needed to do better. He is a competitor. I hope we all know that Joey was doing everything and anything he could to get out of this slump. I am just happy we are good enough to win when he is off his game.
