Joey Votto discusses admiration for Barry Bonds, desire to be ‘unpitchable’

OAKLAND—I remember watching the clip of Joey Votto on MLB Network. He was talking to Greg Amsinger and Eric Byrnes about hitting. It was during spring training, in a completely relaxed setting. It sounds simple enough, but when he speaks, you listen. And that’s exactly what I did.

From that moment on, I was curious about Votto and what he did at the plate ... among other things, of course.

He mentioned Mike Trout being the best player in baseball during the MLB Network interview, and when he’s asked about that, he admits he looks up to the two-time American League MVP—well, kind of:

....

But one guy Votto really looks up to is Barry Bonds. And while he admitted in the past he isn’t in the same realm as Bonds, there’s one thing he wishes he could replicate from the all-time home run leader.

Sadly, if this season so far is meaningful, this is a goal he’s not going to accomplish.
