Joey Votto got tossed from what likely was his last game as a big-league ballplayer by umpire Shane Livensparger. He wasn't happy about a strike call during an at-bat, and he was livid between innings when he saw on replay that the pitch had been well outside the zone.

When Votto screamed at Livensparger from the bench, he got the thumb. Afterward, Votto said the umpire had done the right thing.

Unfairly, I went back and checked the video and starting griping about a call. I really do get along really well with the umpires and have nothing but respect for them. My respect for them has increased over the course of my career, just recognizing how difficult their job is, the travel, the scrutiny they’re under, especially now more than ever. And here I am hollering at them, screaming at them from our dugout. And then, rightfully so, he ejected me. The game has to continue and I’m interrupting the game. ... My rules are you bite your tongue, stick it out, stay in the game, and it was one of those things where the emotions got the better of me and I ... overreacted. Rightfully so, the umpire sent me out of the game.

Votto also sent out this twiX: https://twitter.com/JoeyVotto/status/1708582543744733611?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1708582543744733611%7Ctwgr%5E4cae889e29bfbbcf3de12aaf3b66227cd14e034d%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftheathletic.com%2F4918815%2F2023%2F10%2F01%2Freds-joey-votto-ejection-last-game%2F

I've always liked that Votto is quirky and unafraid to speak his mind while still seeming to be classy. He's had hundreds of teammates over the years, and nobody's had a bad word to say about him, and his managers have loved him.

Very good player, too: 2,135 hits, 356 HR, 1,144 RBI, .409 OBP, .920 OPS. He had a career .307 batting avg and .941 OPS his first 13 seasons, and led the league in OBP 7 times, before age and injury caught up to him his last 4 years. He was 2010 NL MVP for a Reds team that surprisingly won the NL Central.

I’ve yet to see someone with a meaningful negative thing to say about Votto. Consistent and fantastic as a player.  Great personality and charisma in any media setting.  Great with fans and the community in Cincy.  If he was in a big market he’d probably be in a ton of ads.

Nothing but respect.  Votto and Miggy had a very nice moment when Detroit was in Cinci.

The case seemed a bit odd from the jump, and his personality didn’t help, but it seems like Trevor Bauer got absolutely screwed.  Not just by a predator, but by a lot of people involved with MLB

Zero reason for him not to be pitching in the MLB next year, especially since he’s been dealing in Japan

Probably had something to with him having 4 independent allegations around the country. Just speculating

Nope, this is all from the 1 trial the only one that had an actual case.

All the others were allegations after this one that buried him.

You’re incorrect. The MLB also investigated the other allegations. Per SI.

“As part of its investigation, MLB interviewed Bauer over several days, according to SI’s Stephanie Apstein. According to The Washington Post, the league also investigated Bauer for other sexual assault allegations. An Ohio woman said Bauer sexually assaulted her in 2017, the Post reported last August. The woman sought a temporary order of protection against him in ’20, which was granted and which she dropped after six weeks.”

Here’s the link as well

If you’re referring to what was just settled then yes, it was that one set of allegations. But the MLB investigated way further than just that.

Twins doing what the US Ryder Cup team couldn't.   Congratulations on breaking the streak.

Wasn’t sure if I’d ever see us win a playoff game again.

I’m effd with work, but if there’s a game 3 might walk over for the last few innings on Thursday
Thanks for ruining summer, Canada.

Just turned on the Brewers game, watched just two pitches to Arizona batters, both HRs. 

Brutal.

Before you turned it on, the Brewers had engaged in Pfaadt shaming.
