    So Votto is back from bereavement, but Valentin continues to play over him at 1b?

    Votto back, but not in lineup

    By Hal McCoy

    Staff Writer

    Sunday, August 17, 2008

    CINCINNATI — Joey Votto was in uniform Saturday, Aug. 16, returning from bereavement leave, but in no mood to play baseball, to smile or to chat about his ordeal.

    Reds manager Dusty Baker understands fully. He had hoped to keep Votto on bereavement for 10 days, "But we had to activate him because the rules say only seven days for bereavement, and that time is up."

    Baker did not put Votto in the lineup Saturday night, nor does he plan to start him today, and said, "I was hoping to let him workout Saturday and today and with an off day Monday, he would be ready Tuesday. But the rules say he gets only a week, so he had to be on the roster."

    To make room for Votto, the Reds had to return infielder Adam Rosales back to Class AAA Louisville, but not before he got his first major-league hit.

    Asked if Votto might pinch hit, Baker said, "I don't know if he'll be emotionally and physically ready. He hasn't hit. But, we'll see."

    Javier Valentin, playing most of the time during Votto's absence, started Saturday and will start this afternoon.

    How terribly sad for Votto.

    Re: reds vs cards 8/17

    Then put him on the DL......and let Rosales at least start a few. Is it too much to ask for someone to ask Baker...why he never started 1 game?

    Not trying to sound cold to JV at all...but his heart is not in it....why force him to be here?

    I think having the reds pre-game show with STL highlights and another lovefest over pujols.....wow...he is good? really? i did not know that....thanks ernie and bert.........is really put me in a foul mood.....that and fracturing my thumb in 6 places during a company softball game. :thumbdown

    Btw...How's Edinson's velocity? Gameday's radar isn't working.

    Very nice first inning for Volquez. 8 pitches, 7 strikes, 3 outs, no hits. After last night, this bullpen could really use a breather.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
