    Cincinnati Reds Setback for Votto, out 7-10 extra days

    According to http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/

    Joey Votto (left knee) returned to Cincinnati and had a minor procedure last night to remove a piece of floating cartilage, Reds trainer Paul Lessard said.

    It will add 7-to-10 days to Votto’s recovery time. The original projection was 3-to-4 weeks from the date of Votto’s surgery July 17, for a torn medial meniscus.

    The procedure Friday night, by Reds medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek, took about six minutes.

    Sigh...

    I'd rather have Dr. Seuss as medical director at this point.

    That's a minor setback, as long as he's healthy for crunch time I'll be happy.

    No need to rush him. I was figuring on the 20th, so I'm good with a few extra days.

    How can the Reds continue to have Clownchek as their team doctor? It seems an injury/ recuperation rarely goes as planned.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    This is certainly disappointing, although not completely unexpected. I sure hope I get to see him when the Reds are in Phoenix. Shame Bruce is in a deep freeze, sure home Ludwick and Frazier stay hot. Please Dusty...don't sit Ludwick.

    I hate this, but at the same time, we have a pretty easy schedule until then. Cubs, Mets, Cubs. However, if he gets another setback, he will likely miss the Phillies and Cards series, and I would hate that.

    Oh, and there's no need to blame the medical staff.

    Need to go our and grab a Lyle Overbay type as insurance. Cairo having 9 starts at first is 9 too many.

    Reds medical staff is a failure. People need to stop trying to count on Bruce as well because he is what he is at this point

    This sure sounds similar to what happened to Trent Richardson.

    Meniscus tear....followed by an operation to repair the tear....and then not long after the operation an MRI detects a "loose" piece of cartilage.

    Has the Curse of the Factory of Sadness infected the Reds via Browns fans that are also Reds fans?

    It will take a mack truck to stop Trent from getting on the playing field.

    The way this team hits combined with them knowing Votto is out for a couple more weeks. Nothing is going to be an easy schedule.
