Re: Votto Not Playing Tonight
I've seen whispers that while his knee issues from a few weeks back aren't serious, they are lingering and likely won't go away. Dusty says it's affected Votto's running. I imagine he's going to be given plenty of time to stay fresh.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
