Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto landed himself in hot water on multiple fronts when a Yahoo! Sports podcast released Tuesday featured the star slugger sharing critical thoughts toward Canadian baseball and the Reds.
Regarding the Reds, Votto said the team is off to “the worst start I’ve ever seen.” Cincinnati was 10-27 at the time and is now 14-29 entering Wednesday.
“It’s been noted in the past that this was historically one of the worst starts for this franchise,” Votto said on the podcast. There are so many people that are losing interest in our organization — and deservedly so.”
