Amber Alert: Joey Votto

Postby deutschland » Fri Aug 15, 2008 1:35 pm

Has anyone heard anything about this guy? Placed on secret bereavement a week ago and I haven't seen news on him anywhere. Apparently he needs to be reinstated by Saturday?

Per Rotoworld:

Reds reinstated INF Joey Votto from the bereavement list.

He was reinstated because he had reached the maximum allotment of seven days, and he's expected to get a "couple more days" to get back into a "baseball mindset" before returning to the starting lineup. He should be ready to pinch-hit over the weekend.

My theory: he needed time off to invade Georgia.

That's right. Joey Votto is Russia. You got a better theory? }:-)

I think it's wierd that Yahoo was posting up it was due to his father's passing, and then posting up that he requested the reason NOT be shared, continually during his time off. Saw each news item posted a few times.
