The Reds won't be able to trade EVERYBODY. Likely one of Conine or Valentin will still be on the team and probably both of them. One of those two should be released and the other kept as Votto's BACKUP. No guarantee of playing time for the backup, no platoon, just strictly maybe a once a week or once every two week start for the backup. Let Votto get his cuts in against RH and LH pitchers and learn.
