Reds first baseman Joey Votto reported to spring training in Goodyear, Arizona, today, and a crowd immediately assembled to ask questions and just bask in his presence. Mark Sheldon and Zach Buchanan wrote about it, and here are some video highlights:

    I wonder who falls into the “people who just don’t know what they are talking about” in video 2? I’m looking at you Marty and tHom.

    I love that Joey Votto is clearly deliberate about everything he sees and incorporates into his process, his goals, his motivation and his execution EXCEPT developing slick responses for the inevitable questions. His responses are simple and honest and not even a little bit rehearsed. He’ll never be a media darling as a result, but if he’s focusing his energy on baseball and not on interviews that’s just one more detail that makes him so good on the field. Can’t wait for Opening Day!
