Reds' Joey Votto undergoes minor knee surgery Tuesday
Dusty and everyone else including Joey must be downplaying this. Tonight couldn't be just a scheduled off-day. he probably has tonight off so the swelling in the knee isn't so bad for surgery tomm. Also if hes having surgery he def. won't play tomm night. This scares me. Hope everything goes as planned and hes back before this series is over. Hes the one guy on this team we cannot go a long stretch without. I also checked around and Bob Hertzel is the only one reporting this that I could find. Another thing. If this is minor then why wouldnt he have just had the surgery during the break? the knee must be getting worse.

Who is Bob Hertzel (rhetorical) and how did he scoop everyone else on this?
Assuming it has validity, if there is a time for it to happen this is it.
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
As I said in another thread, There is no such thing as minor surgery for a star of his status. I'm glad, however, that he is getting it taken care of.
No confirmation from the Reds yet.
Jason Hammel arthroscopy estimated to miss 3-4 weeks.
Giancarlo Stanton, estimated to miss 4-6 weeks.
Now would be a fantastic time for Bruce to go on one of his unconscious streaks.
