...Which makes me suspicious that there is more to the injury than publicized. I have no faith in the Great Kremchek. I have had the meniscus surgery, as some on here probably have. Outpatient procedure and walking/hobbling the next morning. No way I could have played in a beer league softball game in 3 weeks, though. Maybe in 2 months.
For Votto, I'm guessing it's more mental than physical (ie) still sliding head-first. If not, he's more damaged than reported. His swing was definitely affected. Props to him for giving it a go, though.
