For the second time in a week, a National League manager named Manuel was ejected during a game against the Reds. But unlike Charlie, we don’t really have a problem with Jerry … pretty impressive tantrum actually. NO LOVE FOR CHARLIE.
I read John Fay’s notebook item about how Votto said he’s over the snub (which is impressive, because we definitely aren’t. Adrian Gonzalez?! Omar Infante?!?! Come on!!) That he’s over it is the right thing for him to say for sure, but HOW COOL WAS IT that he made a nice little statement by CLUBBING two home runs in the Reds’ 8-6 win against the Mets on Monday. I’d say that’s letting your actions speak. And the fact that the two homers gave him the league lead made it even cooler. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Charlie.
OK, that’s enough. Go do some Vott-ing!!
