    But in the layman categories, I will concede Andrew looks better.
    No, I just grabbed the numbers from the article about him winning the player of the month award. Then just picked the same ones for Votto. Give me a sec and I'll grab the OPS.

    Votto 1.178
    McCutchen 1.096
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Knowing what I know, it should have been Votto.

    But also knowing what I know about the voters, I can't get too outraged. Maybe one day...

    By the way, it appears that Votto grabbed his helmet and was going to pinch hit?

    Slash lines for June:
    McCutchen: .370/.420/.676/1.096
    Votto: .392/.487/.691/1.178

    I'll take Votto.

    Who else would play at 1st though? At this point, the NL crop at 1B is so weak that Allen Craig could have an outside chance of making the AS team if this happened. Though he doesn't have the at bats, he's at an RBI a game pace right now.

    I'm guessing it might have been a bluff, to ensure the Dodgers pitched to Mesorraco.

    Have we even heard a diagnosis for his knee yet? All I've heard is inflammation which is a symptom, not a diagnosis

    Exactly what I was thinking about this situation. Have they done an MRI and if not, why not?

    Well, you normally get inflammation when your leg is chopped off. And Votto still has 2 legs, so I think you can rule that out.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    My understanding is that it was a jammed knee, and that there was nothing structural (e.g. cartilage, meniscus, ligament) that needed to be addressed beyond swelling related to the injury. For anyone who has had a hyperextended wrist or a jammed toe before, you know that it will swell and only time can really heal it.

    The fact that an MRI has not been conducted is, in my opinion, a good thing. MRI's are generally conducted only when structural damage is anticipated or feared, as far as I know.

    Day-to-day has never been more true than it is in this case, I would think.

    depending on the availablity of Cozart, Votto & Rolen, they really need to do something to get more bodies on the bench to finish out the road trip.
