Re: Votto's knee injury
Athletes who have had knee surgery seem to say that key really is extensive rehab to strengthen the muscles around the knee. I assume that longer period of time for rehab 3-4 months without games would make a big difference.
Terry Francona did say that if a knee bothers a player, he won't shift his entire weight fromr rear leg to front leg which takes away power. Obviously, TF exactly described Joey's swing over the past month.
The one disturbing thing is that I don't think the Reds really told the truth about second knee surgery. They said it was to clean up a loss piece of cartilage floating free in the knee and also said Joey injured the knee while sliding. The two facts obviously don't add up.
