Wow-so sorry to learn of this. R.I.P.

That's awful. Rip
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
Goodness, what awful news. I was wondering what had happened to him; he was such a prolific poster and then silence. He will certainly be missed here.
Poor guy. Only 48.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. 48 is way too young. It's too years younger than myself. He had one of best usernames on RZ. I really liked than name. I hope RZ admin will retire than name in his honor.
Just out of curiosity I looked to see when he posted last. It was June 25th in a Reds/A's game thread.

Wow. 48 is too young! Rest in peace Vottomatic.
Very sorry to hear this. A true Reds and Cincinnati sports fan, and way too young. Such terrible news.

Oh wow how tragic and sad. He always seemed like a good guy. RIP Vottomatic

An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
