I'd still trade Alonso and keep Votto. Alonso for Asdrubal Cabrera sounds like a deal I could get behind. If they could expand that deal to include Shin Soo Choo for LF as well they would fill 2 (maybe even 3) expansive holes cheaply and make this team a legit contender. The tribe is re-building anyway and need top end talent at the corner IF positions which we have some of.
I don't know exactly what would work but how about...
Reds get Cabrera, Choo & Jamey Carroll
Tribe gets Alonso, Wood, Francisco, Watson and Cozart
Really improves our 25 man and cleans up some spots for the 40 man in the mean time.
