If you think you can get away with chirping Joey Votto while he’s in the on-deck circle you’ve got another thing coming.

In Monday’s game between Cincinnati and Cleveland, the Reds superstar got into it with a fan who initiated the verbal jousting match by yelling, “I remember when you used to be good.”

Votto then fired back by saying, “I remember when you used to be thin.”

This unknown heckler clearly does not base his arguments on facts, seeing as Votto is slashing .300/.422/.600 with 12 home runs on the season. In typical 21st-century fashion, another fan seated close by captured the incident on video.
