Ambulance Chasers, Week 15: A Votto-mless Pit in Cincinnati

It was just a couple of months ago that I discussed Cincinnati Reds' first baseman Joey Votto, and what his fantasy value would be the rest of the season. At the time, he was on the DL nursing a quad injury, and had yet to resume on-field activities.  I basically approached the situation this way: if you own him, trade him; if someone else in your league was growing tired of...

Interest in Votto's status remains intense
