    Nope. I'm pretty convinced at this point that if one is singling out his best player and not the many offensive equivalents of a boat anchor on his team, one is part of the problem, not the solution.

    It's one thing to give generic answers to placate the media. It's an entirely different thing to throw your team's best player under the bus doing it.

    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?

    That someone will use this opportunity to rip Dusty?

    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.

    Votto's got his contract. There is no "or else.". Either Walt brings in the hitters and they improve or he doesn't and the same halting offensive dynamic continues.

    How exactly does this hacking offense become "more aggressive." Charge the mound after every pitch?

    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.
