After 25 days of a quadriceps strain, Joey Votto is finally back!!
Will he be the silver bullet that pulls this team together? He wasn’t before the injury, so I don’t know why he would be now.
I’m excited anyway. I guess if I have to see a team lose, I’d rather watch Votto lose than the triple-A guys. (If I wanted to watch a triple-A team, I’d watch the Braves. They’re the youngest team in baseball, with an average age of just over 27, but they’re still leading their division. Maybe I *should* watch the Braves.)
Speaking of triple-A guys, to make room for Votto on the 25-man, the Reds optioned Donald Lutz.
