I love the Redszone mind readers who think they know what Walt is thinkingnby reading into his mind. Just for giggles....what am I thinking now?
We'll see what all comes from this, but I have a feeling it's not as bad as it sounds. Also Walt is not the one who brings up Votto's name, it was likely just a long couple of days, with air head radio/TV reporter all going WHAT ABOUT VOTTO? HE WALKS TOO MUCH!!! MORE RBIS!!!!
They likely just want to talk with Votto to decide and figure out why he felt a need to openly alter his approach. Is it the knee? Does he feel his power has lessened?
Joey's interview with Lance > Walt's interview with Cunningham.
As I said earlier, the whole thing smacks of a GM passing the buck for his own failures. His inability to replace Ludwick and his underestimating of the Pirates. It doesn't make him a criminal and it's not exactly a reason to fire the guy, but it's unbecoming and unprofessional.
I think Joey took advantage of the opportunity to squash any thoughts of negative feelings between him and the front office.
He sounded intrigued to work with Price and to see what happens.
He said he liked that Price wanted to be more aggressive, to be a team that other teams dreaded to face.
He didn't take Jocketty's comments as a change or else ultimatum.
I felt he kind of thought the knee is what affected his change this season.
Price went in to detail about what he would like in an offense. We have know idea what next season's offense will be until we know who the hitting coach will be, not to mention offseason changes.
The aggressive comments came more from a team atmosphere of baserunning, and how they approach their games and opponents.
