    This could get uglier than the face I see in the mirror every morning.

    Is Irrabarren making a case for a bench spot next season? I know nothing about him pre-'16....has he always hit?

    Not especially, hit just .256/.324/.305 last year in about the same number of ABs as this year as he benefitted from a really, really high BABIP in 2016.

    He's a good story, but I'm not expecting much moving forward. I don't see him as being especially better than Ivan De Jesus and Kris Negron. He should have to compete in 2017 for a job like everyone else.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Yeah, guys like Irrabarren and Selsky are the type you keep in AAA for emergency call-ups.

    "When I was working here with the Cubs, and that's as recently as 1995..."

    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Any word on why Votto was walking backwards to the dugout after his last AB? Looked like someone on that side of the field for the Cubs said something he didn't like at all

    Votto got a foul ball and tossed it to a hot girl in the stands. I fear he's lost his focus.
