I know Joey Votto isn’t exactly the face of baseball, but c’mon man. The guy is a perennial All-Star in the NATIONAL LEAGUE CENTRAL, SAME division as the Cubs.
Explain to me how this guy has no idea who Votto is.
Does he not like baseball? Is Votto that underrated a player? Was he trolling Votto?
My bet is he doesn’t care about baseball much.
Either way, I would think someone in this type of position would be required to learn the visiting players’ names and faces. Seems like that’s an important part of the job.
Doesn’t seem that complicated.
