    Votto to play in WBC

    Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but Fay just tweeted that Votto will play for Team Canada. Hopefully that means he's fully healthy

    The general feeling has been that if he's not back to normal he would skip the WBC. The fact that he's playing pretty much confirms that Votto is officially healthy again.

    Joey is a whussy for not playing against the Reds! What is the sense of scheduling the game or let Canada train in Goodyear if he was not going to play in that game? Jeter played against the Yankees when he was a member of Team USA and Robinson Cano will probably play against the Yankees for the Dom Rep. this week. Come on Joey, it's good fun!
    PROVE ME WRONG, REDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND THEY DID!!!!!!!!!!

    USA needs Canada to beat Mexico to possibly avoid elimination tonight. Another reason to root for Votto.

    Holy crap! Luis Cruz visually told his pitcher to hit the next batter after the bunt. That's screwed up right there. How will he explain that to his......

    Cicero, you're a stronger man than I...

    That fight would have been much more entertaining if I wasn't so worried about someone taking out Joey's knee. Now I can exhale.

    Nice job, Team Canada, though.

    Joey stayed clear of any action in the fight, it was almost comical how far back he was standing

    Good. If it were up to me, he would have been placed in a hermetically sealed bubble.

    From Bob Nightengale's twitter referring to Canadian manager Ernie Whitt:

    Whitt: You can't hurt us Canadians

    DatDude with some clutch play tonight. An RBI single and a very good defensive play from his knees. I get angry whenever someone doesn't mention him as the best defensive second baseman in baseball
