It took a while, but Joey Votto has finally decided to be on the roster for Canada’s World Baseball Classic team.
That does not mean he will definitely play.
“As far as playing, I’m going to have to wait until the day before to decide,” Votto said.
Good. He better stay healthy and uninjured, otherwise there will be serious repercussions for America’s hat.
As for the other player considering playing in the World Baseball Classic, Johnny Cueto, he will not be joining the Dominican team. The Reds exercised their right to prevent him from playing since he finished the season on the disabled list.
