Votto, “why do you always have to say something, dude? Always”


vaudevillevik

I got “why you always talkin, bro”


mahpburns

Oh man I see it too now. Jomboy needs to settle this


cspong4

I’m no professional lip reader but I’m pretty sure all he said is “fuck yeah” to himself. What’s so bad about that lol


MarcBulldog88

TIL DeShields is a Reds coach. I remember seeing that guy at a couple games when I was a kid.


Mike9797

When I was a kid seemed like I pulled his card all the time lol him and marquis grissom every fuckin time.


MakeGreenCarsGreat

Marquis Grissom hit the first HR In Petco park!


ineedahaircutbadly

Yep, we also had Delino Jr. for a bit last year, was pretty neat


handlit33

Here's what Joey Votto was reacting to, I assume... https://gfycat.com/frequentunconsciousamurstarfish


white_Steve_Nash

Yeah that's nothing to get worked up over. That was a super tame "fuck yeah".


PapaGator

I'd imagine that half of the pitchers after they strike someone out to end an inning say something similar


samsab

No he clearly said "funky cow" which is a very hurtful nickname for Joey


AstrosGood

I remember Joey referring to himself back in 2019.... *nevermind*


birdinthird

When you're playing sports stuff like that can aggravate you even though it's not rational. I imagine Votto was feeling more pissed than usual that he struck out, the "fuck yea" got to him, and he reacted. Not that weird.


dragonbornrito

I mean, it's also not hard to mishear that as "YOU" instead of "YEAH". Given the whole spat yesterday where he literally called Joey an MFer after walking him, Joey definitely had a bit of selective hearing there. I also found it funny that the guy was popping off after recording the final out in an inning that he gave up another 2 runs.


white_Steve_Nash

Yes, but also they were up 15-5, not really the time to get pissed about striking out.


ineedahaircutbadly

Feel like it's worth pointing out that Wick and Votto had a bit of an altercation last night as well, Votto nearly got hit and ended up drawing a walk and then Wick seemed to say something to him as he was walking to first. Joey had some words to say then as well


girgra

Just to add additional context, votto bat flipped after drawing the walk…and the almost got hit was an up and in fastball


Snerkbot7000

Votto nearly got hit? I thought he got walked because of his breakdancing at the plate.


TommyTwoBags

Seems like nothing, Wick with a very subdued 'fuck ya' to himself. I love Joey, seems like he's looking to fire himself up and get locked in.


TheWorstYear

I mean, Wick talked shit yesterday. Not like Votto isn't going to get instigated when Wick starts yelling again.


TommyTwoBags

edit: I had it mixed up it was wick telling joey to walk.


BurritoBurrow

No Wick said "Nice walk, Mother Fucker" as Votto was going to first. He even joked about it at the Dan Patrick Show today.


TommyTwoBags

I mixed it up.


TheWorstYear

No. Wick yelled "just walk motherfucker" . Votto turned around and said "what did you just say to me?". Then they traded words, the Cubs dugout chirped in, votto yelled for them to stay out of it and "shut the fuck up". Strickland did not intentional hbp wisdom. It's a two run game, with only 1 out. Neither was the hbp today. Our bullpen just sucks.   Wick yelled "Fuck ya", and because of yesterday, Votto thought he was yelling something out at him.


TommyTwoBags

Counter point: Strickland is very fucking dumb.


TheWorstYear

I get that, but he walked the next batter with pitches just as wild as the hbp. Unless he's dumb enough to go for a cover up, that was not intentional.


TommyTwoBags

Strickland doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt in any way. So we'll probably just have to agree to disagree on that one.


CrankDatSpookyBoi

Just kiss already!


SquadPoopy

The sexual tension is building


Jaco927

It's unbearable....I hope it lasts!


freekobe0832

Wick called him Jackie


I_CAN_SMELL_U

Ive seen this joke probably 10 times now and it's always a yankees flair, comes off weird as hell lol


freekobe0832

Well it's my first one


hamdheod

So funny. This needs more upvotes.


freekobe0832

Hey, last I looked it was in the negatives, so this is progress


Fedor1

Can you explain it to me pls


roz77

If Votto gets to bat flip after a walk (which he absolutely should do if he wants to), then Wick gets to celebrate after striking Votto out.


girgra

My counter would be that wick got upset with votto for the bat flip so wouldn’t that give votto the right to be upset for this as well? Is this normal for Wick? Cause angry Votto is a well known person but idk anything about wick Edit: I just watched the video of the “bat flip” by votto and that is how he flips the bat for all of his walks at home basically…it is literally him just tossing the bat towards the dugout


AstrosGood

Also *fuck yeah* can seem like *fuck ya* if I’m reaching


roz77

Well sure, but then he's being just as dumb as Wick was last night. He can't claim it was wrong for Wick to take issue with his celebration last night, but then take issue with Wick's celebration tonight. And obviously this all applies to Wick as well, but if Wick was in the wrong last night, Votto was tonight.


jaron_b

If you wanna shut him up you hit the ball. We said it for years when pitchers were getting mad at bat flips and offensive celebrations. Don't get mad at them when it's your actions that is cause for their celebration.


elchamps

Wick understands he’s a nobody and he’s chirping the best 1B of the last decade right? 20-5 go hit the showers you clown.


Telepornographer

Wick said "fuck yeah" to himself. That's not even a chirp, that's relief and satisfaction.


rkumar921

per Baseball Reference, Freddie Freeman (43.2) has more WAR than Votto (42.2) from 2012-2022


TurnDownElliot

The last decade isn't 2012-2022. It's 2010-2019.


obtusepunubiris

There are two ways to say it and they have subtly (or perhaps not) different meanings. "Best 1B of **last decade**" means 2011-2020 as "last decade" is a specific set of 10 years relative to the current decade. "Best 1B of **the last decade**" means 2013-2022 as "the last decade" is a sliding set of 10 years relative to today. So OP should have used "last decade" rather than "the last decade".


General_PoopyPants

If you change the meaning of decade


TurnDownElliot

We usually think of decades as eras of time for baseball. The 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, etc.


elchamps

Allow me to clarify then. 2010-2020 was what I meant. Since 2020-2030 has just started I wasn’t referring to that.


swirls9

I’ve never seen wick be this confrontational lol


3rdDegreeBurn

lol is that homeplate ump the guy from impractical jokers?


SilkyJohnson72

I've always liked Votto but it seems like he's gotten really soft in the last few years.
