Reds first baseman Joey Votto might be the most powerful Canadian ever. Then again, Steve Nash was once connected to Elizabeth Hurley. That’s powerful stuff in my book.
Anyway, yesterday the big fella from Toronto hit three home runs against three different Cubs pitchers. Watch for yourself. It was an impressive display.
Funny thing is, that didn’t even make up half the Reds’ home run total for the game. Cubs starter Jon Lieber gave up four dongs in the second inning before being pulled. I mean how do you not get pulled when you give up homers to Paul Bako and Jerry freakin Hairston? Damn. The Reds finished the game with seven big flies.
