Did you say the same thing last year when Votto hurt his knee sliding? It might well have cost them the NL pennant.
I agree with you. But diving for a ball like that is a lot different than a routine slide. If he would have snagged on the defenders leg or something. No complaints. But just the way it happened it looked like so what. Whether you guys know about injuries or not. It doesnt matter but i know injuries that didnt look so bad. Or you feel like you didnt do anything that crazy. Probably happened because you were out of shape. Surprised you guys are not slightly upset about handing this dude Millions just for him to play one game this year. Obviously this is all speculation. Im not saying he did anything on purpose. However i am questioning whether he did everything he needed to and worked as hard as he needed to in the offseason to be ready to play. Thats all.
