    So much for the "votto would love to finish his career at home" crowd. This is amazing.

    “As far as Toronto, and Canadian baseball, and the country of Canada, and [James Paxton] being Canadian, I don’t care at all,” Votto clarified. “[Paxton], or the Jays, or Canada, in general, may disagree with that, but I really couldn’t give a rats a** about that.”

    He's probably just trolling so people leave him alone forever about playing for the Jays.

    Hahahahahaha wow, I just became an even bigger Votto fan.

    I'd like to see him as a Jay because he's good, though, not because he's Canadian. This stupid culture that we've developed where we blow our collective loads every time a Canadian does something in baseball is embarrassing.

He's probably tired of Canadians constantly badgering him about it.

    I can't wait for him to get inducted to the Canadian Baseball HOF and not bother showing up. That will be amazing.

    Well I think he goes a bit far by saying he doesn't care about the country of Canada. I mean, there should be a certain amount of respect for where you were born and the people, schools, hospitals, coaches, fucking taxes, etc. that helped raise you.

    Like really, you don't care about Canada? How about we restart at birth and you can try to make the majors from a hut in Ethiopia?

    But like I said, I think he's just trolling so people leave him alone.

    I'm generally with the crowd that barfs at the intense inferiority complex we have but outright shitting on the country is a little much.

Name any other superstar player in any sport who seemingly spent 10+ years being content playing for a cellar dweller, honestly. Votto comes off like a complete beta.

    I'm not really for over the top nationalism either. But I do also like when people take pride in where they come from. This is the same guy who also dressed up as Mountie for an interview with MLB Network. I would love if the Jays got rid of all the cringe maple leafs and just went back to calling us the Toronto Blue Jays and not Canada's team. But I also want to see Canada compete well internationally in Baseball events.

    Anyone listed to the podcast? I feel like the words are probably taken a bit out of context.
