Re: Votto leaves game with knee injury
I think it will come out that he originally injured it a week or two ago. I remember seeing Phillips hit into a DP with Votto on first, and Votto came up limping ever so slightly. I want to say it was during the Mets series, but don't quote me on that.
Maybe it's not been right since then and he tweaked it today.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
