I should let this go (as Votto apparently should have) but I wnated to preserve this little video for a bit of time. The pitch was so obviously a ball. Bubba, MLB.tv has courteously provided a clip, so you do not have to keep that travesty in your DVR anymore (unless you want to of course). Thanks alot for offering. Here is their clip:
It looks like Votto is saying something about "you've been calling that one all game" or something like that. I can't make it out other than the few curse words. I just wonder what Wellke said to draw Votto back.
Votto made some comments about it after the game which were perfectly polite (I would have drug the ump's name through the mud, but I guess I'm just more Pinella lol):
That does answer the question, though, about the number of ejections he's been issued. Votto says he would be ejected once a year while in the Minors. I guess this is par for the course then.
In any case, I hope he doesn't do it again and I hope Dusty actually gets out there in a reaosnable amount of time if something like it does happen again. I'd loe to see Rosales get all fired up though.
Once again, though, when I hear those Mets fans booing him, it just...I need to get tossed I think lol.
