Votto 1B/LF?, Alonso 1B & Francisco LF?/1B? are 3 bodies for 2 positions. If both Alonso & Francisco progress one has to go to help elsewhere. Votto should be a Red for life! There is no way I would trade him.
Stubbs or Heisey go if both progress. I want a bat better than Heisy in LF or RF so moving him here isn't a great plan. Plus hopefully we will have Bruce in RF and either Francisco or Votto (with Alosno at 1B) in LF. Since Stubbs has looked good in his debut so far Heisey is the bet to get traded.
If I ran the Reds I would look to acquire a SS this offseason via trade. the plan of Janish in 2010 and either Janish or Cozart in 2011 seems pretty weak to me. if the Reds could get a SS for some of the AA/AAA prospects who are blocked that would be a good use for these prospects.
