    His knee is in great shape.

    He may have just had a down year, but he basically has established that it was his knee.

    He thinks Billy Hamilton has to play (sounds like he doesn't think he's really ready).
    Glad to see what I was seeing in his swing with regard to his knee, confirmed. Hope we see the power return. I think we will.

    I enjoyed the (I'm paraphrasing): "People are obtuse. I'm patient. I'm not going to expand the zone because doing doesn't help the team. That said, if there's a game winning RBI waiting for me on 3B, I'm looking to drive it in."

    I'm just glad he's confident enough to stick to his guns.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I also liked the Victor Conte dig about "you can only get so good before you have to knock on his door."

    Votto doesn't sound bullish on Hamilton, but I hope he takes him under his wing and teaches him what he can about being successful.

    He said that it seemed like pitchers were pitching him differently last season. I would be interested if was "seemed" or a reality.

    I have no idea whether he actually remembered meeting that caller at a gas station 3-4 years ago, but I believe that if anyone on the Reds would remember something like that, it would be Votto.

    Joey is one fantastic dude.

    He avoids all of the stereotypical jock talk and doesn't back down from his critics.

    That's a pretty deep philosophical question.

    Man, having the old Joey back this year would be awesome. Especially if Bruce can take the next step up.

    Thanks for posting.

    Now I'm really getting PUMPED up for this season.

    The thought of Joey maybe bashing opposite field homers by the bushel again is just intoxicating.
