From Canada’s National Post:

Couple of comments by Votto:

“I just felt I was being held back while I was in Louisville,” he said. “It was hard. It was something I had to deal with every day. It drove me crazy.

“When I finally got called up I felt a real relief, I felt like all the frustration I had during the season staying in Louisville was gone and I finally got to play the game I felt I deserved to play.”


“My expectations are to play every single game,” Votto said. “Whether or not they’re realistic, I don’t know.

“I want to stay in the major leagues from this point on. That’s my goal and that’s what it should be. We’ll see.”

Nothing really new or earthshattering in the article, but it appears that Joey isn’t afraid to say what he thinks.
