    And didn't Votto miss like 6 weeks with his injury last year? I would hardly call that minor.
    It was reported as a torn meniscus, unless the surgery was botched or was more involved than diagnosed he should have been healed in less than 3 months. Full recovery is typically 4-6 weeks per the Internet medical sites.

    An excuse? Seriously? Ever had knee surgery? Not to mention two within the span of a month. It's not uncommon for it to take an extended period of time for an athlete to regain their pre-procedure form.

    Not an excuse from the Reds or Joey but Redszone posters.

    It is told that last year on June 4, Walt choose Travieso over a more deserving player. Just 25 days later, Votto ripped up his knee trying to over-compensate for management's error. Votto has been in a precipitous decline since as the Reds suffer "The Curse of the Wacha."

    Re: Joey Votto and his magically shrinking SLG%

    It's ok to question Votto's performance. We all love Joey and think he's neat. But we caan question him.

    I would say its not a cardinal sin, but that's not a very good adjectove.

    I will say this, we have empirical evidence that if twice a season, a thread is started questioning where Votto's power went, he shows it off. I nominate this to be an annual tradition.

    A frozen rope into the left center field stands tonight. Vintage Votto homer.

    That was a refreshing sight, and hopefully a sign of "better" things to come.

    Depends on what he had done, repaired or removed

    How Long Until Full Recovery?

    Recovery time will depend on the procedure performed.

    * If a partially torn meniscus was removed - You should be back to full activities within four to six weeks.

    * If a partially torn meniscus was repaired - You should expect four to six months until full recovery.
    http://ehealthmd.com/content/arthros...-full-recovery

    Most articles claim it was repaired
    On Tuesday, Votto underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair torn meniscus cartilage.

    And if you remember he was "healed" once and re-injured it causing even more damage when he tried to rush and come back too soon

    This winter he can work on conditioning instead of rehab and that should pay off next season with better numbers

    Most internet health sites give you the scenario for the typical patient. But what they fail to mention is that there's no such such thing as a typical patient. Each and every case is different because each individual is different.

    Seems that every time we (or at leat I) question Votto, he goes on a tear.

    I like being wrong.
