    Walt interview (with Cunningham)

    On Votto
    "He (Joey Votto) has to fit better into the role we see for him, or he might have to hit in a different spot in the order..... that's something Bryan will certainly approach Joey with, and something we will discuss. There are certain things he has to do."


    Walt on BP comments about Bob Castellini:
    "Yes, he was wrong, we handled it internally and will continue to handle it internally."

    Walt on Dusty not breaking up the BP and C. Trent incident
    "It should have happened, it didn't,"--

    Walt on coaching staff changes
    "I think there may need to be some changes, yes."

    Walt on 2014 season
    "We are going to take a much tougher approach to preparing this club, I know what it takes to win."

    On Choo
    "In Choo's heart I think he really enjoyed playing here & loved the city. If it is truly up to him, I think he will stay."


    Full interview

    The Votto comments are most interesting. If this isn't calling him out, mildly at least, I don't know what is. It seems like fans weren't the only ones frustrated by Joey's strange approach at the plate and to the game in general.

    And Votto's complete silence regarding Dusty's firing and Price's hiring - when virtually every other member of the team has chimed in - is more than a little interesting.

    I have read Phillips say he is happy, etc for Price, never read anything about when Baker was fired, did he have anything to say to that? I have been really curious about that.

    It's just Walt calling out Dusty's lineup construction.

    I've been wanting Votto to bat second for years now. I hope that's the end result of this situation.

    The old "you can't hit 2 LHs back-to-back in the order" has to go, too.

    If that's the outcome, then it's only a matter of time until they trade Votto.

    That contract makes him untradeable. No one will take that on. We're married for better or for worse

    Not true at all. As long as he stays healthy and produces, he will be tradeable early in the contract.

    Rightly or wrongly, the highest-paid players in baseball are sluggers or pitchers. With very, very few exceptions. I'm not sure I see that changing.

    Of all the things we could/should be discussing...trading Mr. Votto ain't one of them.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Votto = Bautista + Reyes, then resign Choo for 5-6 years.

    LOL REALLY...Im glad people with this line of thinking aren't the GM, because we would have a run like the pirates just got off of. At least until they were hired with someone who actually knew baseball...
