Joey Votto airs ‘beef’ with former Reds first-round pick Yonder Alonso on MLB Network

Yonder Alonso (right) and Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds look on from the dugout during the game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Great American Ball Park on August 29, 2011 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A Joey Votto interview with MLB Network never fails to entertain.

Votto, who recently explained why he joined social media after years of holding out and added TikTok to his arsenal shortly thereafter, told a hilarious story he’d apparently been holding onto for years about MLBN analyst and former Reds first-round draft pick Yonder Alonso.

From @MLBNetwork via Twitter:

Alonso, the seventh overall pick by the Reds in the 2008 draft, played parts of two seasons for the Reds in 2010 and 2011 before they traded him with Brad Boxberger, Yasmani Grandal and Edinson Volquez to the San Diego Padres for Mat Latos. After four seasons with the Padres, Alonso played for the Oakland A’s, Seattle Mariners, Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox and the Colorado Rockies over a 10-year MLB career.

Votto, a six-time All-Star who has played all 15 of his MLB seasons in Cincinnati, hit .266 in 2021, with 36 homers and 99 RBIs in 533 plate appearances.
