These people calling to say Joey Votto should "get over it" or "suck it up" or suggesting the Reds should try to get rid of him are really ticking me off tonight. They have no idea how serious anxiety and stress issues can be. It's an illness, just like anything else that might knock you out of work. And it can have deadly consequences. I have someone in my family who has been through it, and it's heart-breaking. I pray that Joey isn't dealing with anything as serious, but it could be.
People need to back off, hope for the best, and let this play out. The ignorance of some of these guys makes me ashamed to be a diehard sports fan.
