If you know anything about Joey Votto, you know that he is probably one of the best Canada-born baseball players in all of Major League Baseball. But his recent comments about Canadian James Paxton's no-hitter caused controversy when he said things like, "I don't care almost at all about Canadian baseball" and "really couldn't give a rat's ass."
Since making those comments, Votto has realized his faults and decided to apologize.
Joey Votto has written an apology on Canadian Baseball Network after he said on Yahoo's MLB podcast, “I don’t care almost at all about Canadian baseball."— Tim and Sid (@timandsid) May 16, 2018

Considering the fact that Votto pissed off an entire country, it's hard for him to make it up just with a simple apology.
But Votto's reasoning for his outburst are a little childish. I mean, he's mad because he didn't make the Canadian team and because Toronto didn't draft him? That kind of sounds like a spoiled little kid who throws a tantrum because he didn't get what he wanted.
Thanks for trying Joey. But just saying "I'm sorry" doesn't mean people are going to stop being mad at you.
