This is what I thought, although a September call up won't shock me. I don't think Krivsky and Narron have the "vet love" some think just for the sake of having vets around. I think the Hatteberg/Conine tandem has worked out very well, but many of us have recognized it as a stop gap for when Votto makes the big club.
I wouldn't be shocked to see Conine moved at the deadline to make room for Votto. Then Votto can get his feet wet with Hatteberg playing too, mentoring him.
