According to Reds' TV team, he left today's game with left knee inflammation. He left as a precautionary measure, and is receiving further testing and evaluation now.
He'll be fine, he's Canadian. They all have mutant healing powers like Wolverine.
"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."

VBR IS LIVING IN CINCINNATI...I FEEL GOOD!

I think it will come out that he originally injured it a week or two ago. I remember seeing Phillips hit into a DP with Votto on first, and Votto came up limping ever so slightly. I want to say it was during the Mets series, but don't quote me on that.

"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
