    Votto expected to be out 3-4 weeks after knee surgery

    Any word? If this is somewhere else, I apologize...just hoping it is a day off...
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    Yes it is just a day off. Dusty said even before last night's game he was giving Votto a day off today. He would have given him a day off this weekend but did not want to do it against the Cardinals.

    It’s just a day off for Joey Votto. Dusty Baker mentioned the fatigue factor yesterday. The swap of Stubbs and Cozart is interesting. Neither has been good in leadoff; both have been much better hitting second.
    Reds facing a lefty tonight.

    Seems pretty obvious to me that they've traded him for Greinke.

    I've seen whispers that while his knee issues from a few weeks back aren't serious, they are lingering and likely won't go away. Dusty says it's affected Votto's running. I imagine he's going to be given plenty of time to stay fresh.
    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.

    I'm checking the internet regularly for medical reports on Johnny Cueto's blister, so yeah, I feel you.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: Votto Not Playing Tonight

    What was concerning me was the number of routine groundouts he has had since the knee issue came about,including the ones in the All star game.Thats not Votto at all.The worst part is Cairo and not Frazier will be on first tonight.

    Have we heard a diagnosis yet? My bet is it's a meniscus and that we'll quietly hear that he got it scoped sometime after this season

    My guess too.

    There's a quarter of a billion dollars on the line, give him the night off.

    Not only did he play in the AS game but he had to fly from SD to Cin then go to KC for the all-star game and then come back to Cincy. This is not a JR situation.

    I'm not particularly worried at this point...but yeah, if I hear that Votto has a hangnail, I will be a little nervous until it's healed. The guy is just too important.

    Give him the rest he needs now, if that will help him carry the weight of this team in September.
