    The Reds have used the least number of players so far this season and only 5 starting pitchers. I think that has to do with the medical staff using preventative measures/care. Just because it's our best player going down, naturally Dr.K and co will be getting undeserved malice. The Reds were lucky to not have a major injury outside of BP for a few weeks (and Madsen of course).

    Why did it take the Reds medical staff 17 days to determine Votto had a torn meniscus?

    i was calling for Votto to be benched a loooooong time ago because i could tell his knee was bothering him all that time.

    It probably didn't. Guys play through meniscus tears all the time, especially if they're only partial ones. Depending on the severity, a lot of athletes or doctors will opt to go in a therapy direction rather than surgery out of the gate.

    My guess is it just didn't respond the way they had hoped. This isn't like tearing an ACL, there's a whole spectrum of levels of pain and damage.

    The timing is really interesting, though. Plays through the tough West Coast swing and a hard series against the Cards only to opt for surgery during one of the softer spots of our schedule. Don't know if there's something to that or not.

    Isn't this the key question? I know nothing about this subject, but i don't understand why this took so long to figure out.

    It's possible the tear occurred after he hurt his knee in San Francisco. That slide might have weakened the knee and then the tear came later. If his knee hurt before, Votto might have put the pain of the tear down to the continuing pain of the initial injury and tried to play through it.

    Votto hasn't been playing particularly well but the Reds have been winning anyway. Three weeks without Votto (assuming he rehabs and recovers quickly) shouldn't hurt too much so long as the pitching holds up.

    Great opportunity for Frazier.

    Berkman is also eight years older than Votto who is in much better condition physically.

    Right. Its not like Votto is an MVP or anything like that.

    Votto did not have an MRI before Monday.

    “He didn’t request until then,” Jocketty said. “He didn’t think it was much of problem until the last few days.”

    What am I missing here?

    We'll be fine.

    Votto is a huge loss obviously, but we aren't a one man team.
