It has been discussed before but the situtuation begs the question again. The bottomline is that the front office has a number of the minor leaguers play a secondary postion on a regular basis. They want guys to be a bit more versatile. I believe its so that they can be more valuable at the major league level and once they get there they'll be able to have more playing time. They're doing this with a number of guys, Votto, Bruce, Janish, Anderson; and there are probably others that I simply haven't noticed. I wouldn't read anything into it regarding who's the first baseman of the future or a pending trade of Adam Dunn. Its not nearly that cerebral.

This would make logical sense, but would this, implicitly mean that Votto is not the first baseman of the future? Does that mean another year of a first base plattoon?
