So far, Not so Good

As we had discussed earlier in the week this road trip for the Reds is very crucial in staying near the top of the division as we head into June. Coming into the series the Reds were 1.5 games out of first place with the Cardinals, now after losing the first two in Milwaukee, the Reds are 2.5 games out of the tied Cardinals and Brewers. To make matters worse Reds Star First Baseman Joey Votto has not been placed on the Disabled List due to Stress related issues. Votto, who has been dealing with dizziness relating to an inner ear infection, had cleared out his locker early Saturday without any indication to his teammates or the media as to what was causing this stress. Baker held a meeting with the team in the clubhouse but did not disclose to the team what the issue was either. “He is dealing with a personal issue,” said Baker. “He wants us to respect his privacy about that and he is dealing with it, just trying to deal with it.”
