Votto...

Postby mhuhn23 » Fri May 29, 2009 8:58 pm

So what's the deal tonight? Once again an AB and then leaves the game...and I put him in a UTIL spot over Luke Scott (who is 3/3 2 HR 5 RBI at the moment)

This is getting soooooo frustrating...he's about to ride the pine on my squad until he strings together a good 10 starts and finishes in a row.

Off of rotoworld Saturday afternoon:

Reds placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 15-day disabled list with stress-related issues.

Votto left Friday's game in the second inning. He has been bothered by an inner-ear infection that causes dizzy spells. No word yet on how much time he will miss.

This is really one of the more bizarre set of circumstances surrounding a player that I can recall in a long time. Reminds me of when Greinke took some time off a few years back. It's really killing me, especially since I just traded my backup 1B, Billy Butler, under the assumption Votto was getting better.


“He’s dealing with a personal issue. He wants us to respect his privacy about that,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

No more details were revealed, at Votto’s request. There was no timetable for a return.

“They weren’t informed about what was wrong,” Baker said of the meeting. “I just told them we have to stick together, even more than ever. Whatever it is, we need to support him. This is like a member of your family. Right now, he needs their support and love and understanding something they might not even understand.”

Apparently, this has less to do with the inner ear infection than originally speculated but again — details are at a minimum.

“It’s partly that. Let’s leave it at that,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It’s basically something that Joey needs some time away to deal with. We gave him that time. It’s not a big deal but it’s something that was affecting his ability to play at the level he wants to play at.”

I can't really add any information to this I feel like the reporting on the issue has been kind of murky? Was it inner ear inffection that was causing the dizziness or an anxiety disorder? I understand that its a private matter and there is a particular stigma attached to so called "mental illnesses", but i really would like to know more about what is going on?

From what I understand with his history w/ the reds and team canada in the WBC Votto carries himself like a pro, he doesn't give off that flaky vibe like some players do/did and has no track record of problems in his past. I wish him a healthy return to baseball cause that guy can seriously mash.

Any updates? Couldn't really find anything new, which isn't a good thing.
