Joey Votto Reminds His St. Louis Uber Drivers That He Won The 2010 MVP Over Albert Pujols


The biggest troll in Major League Baseball is at it again and if you’ve followed Joey Votto over the years you know a story like this is 100% true. His track record of messing with his opponent’s fans speaks itself, so when I come across this tidbit from an interview with The Athletic, of course I believe it.


You might remember Votto’s monster 2010 season when he edged out prime Albert Pujols in the MVP with a cool .324/37 HR/113 RBI line for the season. With the Cardinals being in the Reds division, naturally Votto is going to bring this up whenever he’s town for a series. And according to him, he’s had multiple Uber drivers that he’s reminded about that 2010 MVP.
From The Athletic:

I’m very aware of that. I’ve told many a St. Louis Uber driver that. They ask me who I am, they say, “You play baseball?”
I say, “Yes.”
They say, “Wow, what team?”
I say, “Cincinnati.”
They say, “Oh, where’s that?”
I say, “Oh, it’s in Ohio.”
They’ll say, “OK.”
I say, “Do you know Albert Pujols?”
“Oh yes, of course.”
I’ll say, “Well, I beat him for the Most Valuable Player. He came in second to me.”

It’s always nice to get a little personality from our baseball players every now and then. Maybe one day the MLB will promote this kind of stuff.
