Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
“I was disappointed,” Votto said, referring to not making the NL team. “I would have liked to have gotten in on the first vote, but I still consider this an honor to be able to get myself a chance to go to the All-Star game with a pretty good group of guys.”
...“Middle of the year, you kind of get frustrated,” he said. “I didn’t keep my temper in check. I deserved to get thrown out.”
Votto then smiled and said:
“On the flip side, my replacement did pretty good.”
Paul Janish came in and took Votto’s No. 3 spot in the batting order. Janish played third base, with Miguel Cairo moving from third base to first in Votto’s place. (Regular third baseman Scott Rolen had a scheduled day off).
The seldom-used Janish merely had the game of his life: 4-for-4 with a homer and three RBI. The hit and RBI totals were career highs for Janish.
Votto said a new fan vote may be needed.
“Have the fans vote in who starts,” Votto said. “Paul Janish, myself or Miguel Cairo.”
