What do you get when you combine Joey Votto and a foul ball? Well -- the thing is, you don't really know what you're going to get. Sometimes he will toss a ball onto the roof, and other times, he will show restraint and keep the ball to himself -- that's Votto, that's what he does. And during the Reds-Angels game on Monday, he once again gave us a show with some foul ball antics. In the bottom of the third inning, Zack Cozart smacked a blooper beyond first base. Votto couldn't get a solid read on the ball to make the out. The crowd was expecting to perhaps receive the ball after the play, and then this happened:
Maybe a fake throw, maybe just frustration. Either way, Votto continues to be a huge source of entertainment.
