    This isn't what I wanted to hear. We're looking at Sept 1 at the earliest and if he isn't activated then, we've got some real questions to ask
    Not sure what alarms you in that account. As he said, go figure that he has pain after surgery two weeks ago.

    He hadn't returned from injury. Until he returns from injury, he's merely "on schedule" to return when he was projected to and anything that prevents that return (re injury, aggravation, setbacks, etc.) extends the time table.

    I don't know how you can define things any other way. Just because you get "A's" on the midterm and all the quizzes doesn't mean you're going to end up with an "A" in the class -- you might be on schedule to get an "A," but there's still a final exam to worry about before you can write the grade down on your transcripts.

    Agreed. I heard Votto remark a few days ago that this was the first time he has ever suffered ANY type of injury playing baseball before.

    That means he is still working to define--within his own mind--the differences between general post-op soreness and pain that should be brought to someone else's attention.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    He took some ground balls over the weekend at GABP

    He got a haircut

    He didn't go on the trip.

    You now know everything.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    You know, if anything, this stretch has shown this team that it can win without Votto. These guys have to have sky-high confidence right now.
    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

    "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."

    The dude IS Canadian. I'm sure his beard is very manly.

    All jokes aside, the Reds need to get Votto back for no other reason than to get him back in the groove while giving Dusty time to figure out how he wants to play Ludwick/Rolen/Frazier in only two spots on a day to day basis.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Looks like the decision's been made.

    It's almost 6 weeks until the playoffs start. Anything can happen between now and then. But no matter what, just knowing the team is in first and an MVP caliber player is going to be joining the team soon is never a bad thing.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
