    Re: Votto out additional 7-10 days

    I'm just thinking out loud here and I'm not blaming any of the medical staff etc...but I'm starting to get a bit nervous about Votto making it back to 100 percent (for lack of a better term) this year.

    I honestly don't think there's a question of his returning at 100 percent, I just think it's a matter of when.

    Honestly, I wonder if the Reds aren't playing it extra conservative now that they continue to increase their lead. As long as the Reds keep putting distance between they and the Pirates/Cardinals, they can play it slow in getting him back.

    I'm still chucking at the people who swore that the original surgery was a minor procedure and insisted that Votto would be back in 3 weeks.

    Any time a timetable is given for an injury return mid-season, double it to get an idea of the earliest possible date of return.

    I agree they have no reason not to be conservative. But today for some reason I just pictured after a quick playoff exit Votto saying something like "yeah my knee just never got back up to speed this year etc...". Again, just thinking aloud. I think we are around Day 50 post-injury now...I think it is wearing on my brain a bit.

    I agree with Brutus that the Reds are taking it very cautiously at this point to try and get Votto back to that 100% (or as close as possible) so he can be a part of the final post-season push and be ready to go in the playoffs.

    If he can't make it back to 100%, the question is how close to 100% he is and if he's only at 80%, is that enough?

    Well, it was a minor procedure. My brother had a meniscus torn, surgery to fix it, and everything is fine for him today. However, I agree with you on the recovery time. Just because the procedure is minor doesn't mean he's going to heal that quickly. I originally thought around 5 weeks for his recovery.

    The original surgery had him being within a couple of days of being activated around the 3-week mark. It wasn't until they found loose cartilage that Votto's timetable got pushed back.

    If he didn't have to wind up going back for a second procedure, he'd already have been back by now.

    He was basically back in 4 weeks, then hurt in sliding practice, so I'm not sure why you are being so condescending as if people were idiots when the timetable was pretty much on track to the original 3-4 weeks except for the second injury.

    I am sure a six game lead and the current success tells the team officials to be conservative with their best player.

    It's not just Votto coming back, which I'm sure he will within the next couple of weeks. I'm worried about him having enough time to get back into a groove. Missing a month and a half in the middle of the season is going to mean Joey will have at least some adjustment to get his swing back to where it was pre-ASB.

    It's not like he re-injured himself putting on his cowboy boots.

    The second surgery was 8 days ago, a 10 minute procedure. There is no time table for his return. According to him he still has pain. When should we be concerned? I'm not trying to start anything on the board, but this thing has not gone well or at the very least, not according to plan.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
