Reds’ Joey Votto Upset Over Team’s Terrible Start

Published

on

Cincinnati Reds’ icon Joey Votto is sounding off as the Reds endure one of the worst start to the season that he has even seen.

“I genuinely hope that we’re trending in the right direction, but this is the worst start I’ve ever seen” Votto said during an interview with Yahoo Sports’ Tim Brown on the latest Yahoo Sports MLB Podcast.

“If I’m not mistaken, it’s been noted in the past that this was historically one of the worst starts for this franchise. There are so many people that are losing interest in our organization — and deservedly so. It hasn’t been a fun time to be a Cincinnati Reds fan.”

Votto knows that his comments won’t be found appealing by those within the organization, but it’s not stopping him from airing his opinion.

“Not often does a player get to speak the way I’m speaking right now because my role is to do my job on the field and pretty much zip my lips, which makes sense.

But in the same breath, I’ve been with this franchise for, I think, 17 years now. You can say things are business, but to honest with you, I was a kid when I signed with this franchise, I take it personally.

This is a personal thing to me. People inside of the organization in all likelihood are not going to enjoy my responses. But it’s been disappointing.”
