    "I don't like the Cubs."

    Cincinnati Reds' Joey Votto rips Chicago Cubs, passes on congratulations for Marlon Byrd - ESPN Chicago

    ‎"I don't like the Cubs. And I'm not going to pat anybody with a Cubs uniform on the back. We are Cincinnati Reds. We're taught to hate everything in the Central Division. That's just how it is."
    I love Joey Votto.

    You know what else Joey Votto doesn't like? Women.

    That's okay. I'm liking the Cubs less and less by the day.

    Re: "I don't like the Cubs."

    I am a Cub fan, and I don't have any problem with what he said. Kind of refreshing in a way. Unfortunately, free agency and player's unions have dulled some of the competitive edge in the game, today. As a result, I am far less interested in baseball now than I used to be. I hate it when Derrek Lee, for example, is yucking it up with Albert Pujols. These guys should have a deep seeded hatred for one another, and even if they don't they should be aware of the city they play for and the fans they represent. Be "buddy-buddy" on your own time. This is the way divisional rivalries should be.

    That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if this is all taken out of context. It is highly possible Joey Votto's comments are a little tongue-in-cheek, but that doesn't come through in writing.

    Re: "I don't like the Cubs."

    Is Joey Voto done crying yet about not being on the first set of All Star Rosters?

    I blame these two.

    Re: "I don't like the Cubs."

    Any NL player hoping to play in the World Series this year should be patting Byrd on the back for taking that walk with 2 outs. Had he not done that McCann would not have hit the 3 run double that won the game and the AL might have gone home with home field advantage once again.

    Byrd is one of the few guys I can't blame the Cubs problems on this season. He's been the anti-Milton Bradley and hustles more than any guy on the team.
