Any word yet on why he came out tonight?

I am still betting on lingering after-effects of the flu. Aside from the pig version, there have been a series of nasty strains of flu around the country this spring. It's taking time to get over a serious bout of the flu, depending on the strain.

Recall Hairston's struggles when he came back from Mexico with flu of some sort or another after the WBC. Lost 10-12 pounds, and really wasn't himself for a good chunk of April.

That's my guess, anyway. Holiday Inn stay optional.

Mild dizziness for Votto per the Reds. He'll be examined by a doctor in Cincinnati on Monday.

I've got to think the Reds are beginning to get slightly concerned over Votto.

I've heard that Joey is invested heavily in the Standpoor company.

I saw that a Sundeck poster who'd had Lyme disease immediately thought of that. I'm a diabetic, and my first thought was that his symptoms matched mine when I was first diagnosed. The natural reaction is to equate things we hear with what we've been through.

No reason to believe this was anything other than lingering flu, though. It can stick around and get you like this even after you think you're well.

It probably is nothing more than lingering flu symptoms. Still, I'd put him on the 15-day, have him see a real physician (not some sports med quack), and get him as much time away as he needs.

They've forgotten there is a disabled list, apparently.

That was my thought too. I'm hoping he doesn't turn into another Nick Esasky who's career was curtailed by Vertigo. I would think getting over a nasty flu could be very difficult with all the travel they do and going into different climates every few days. Probably going back home and staying put for a few days will be the best thing for him.

Problems with dizziness and balance are extremely common after a case of influenza. Fluid builds up in the ear (which contains structures that maintain equilibrium) and causes the problem. He could possibly have a minor ear infection secondary to the flu. He's just going to need a couple of days for his body to recover completely from the virus.

As for Lyme disease.... "When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras."

Awesome to see you back, Brad.

I should have thought of this months ago... ask a medical question and Dr. Larkin Fan shows up.

Reds 1B Joey Votto became light-headed following yesterday’s game at San Diego. Instead of flying home with the team, as a precautionary measure he was admitted for tests at Scripps Clinic at San Diego. He will be examined again in Cincinnati tomorrow. Votto missed 5 games last week with the flu and twice more left games with dizziness.

I noticed a thread on The Sun Deck saying that Votto did not make the trip back and that caused some anxiety with the posters. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if he has an ear infection, you don't want him flying because that could cause some pretty serious problems. I ended up running a trade association meeting some years ago because our executive director couldn't fly because they doctor said she couldn't with her ear infection.

Much ado about nothing? Votto probably still is sick. The flu wipes people out for weeks, even after they come back to work. The Reds aren't going to release what really is going on but who knows the exact situation as to why Votto didn't fly home. Maybe there is a specialist out in SD that the Reds wanted Votto to see? There was no NEED to have Votto back on the team flight, especially if he was experiencing some discomfort. The Reds had an off day today and in all reality Votto wasn't going to play tonight anyway. Keep him anywhere the Reds feel fit as long as he gets healthy as soon as possible.

I wonder if the Reds will pick up the tab for Joey to fly back to Cincy?
