As for me, I'm far more concerned about long term arthritis or worse, in that knee, going forward.
lol, well he did after all go to a great high school where only great people graduate from
Back on topic, I read on Redszone when news first came down of Votto's original injury that a poster forgot the last time a knee injury only lasted a few weeks, and that it usually turns out to be an on going, never ending thing. My fear is that this additional ten days turns into 20 or 25 days and so forth.
I hope that Votto returns soon obviously, but I want more also. I need him to be healthy and very well rested. If he comes back against St. Louis (which is my personal hope) he will have been out of the game for 38 days. Obviously he has done his own personal regiment and has worked hard over this period but I need him to be stronger and more rested than anyone else from then to the World Series.
There will be 37 regular season games left when the Reds take the field against the Cardinals. If Votto would to go on a tear through them and into the postseason the chips could all be falling into place for a Red October.
