I like the thought. This is sort of the elephant in the room in the "which prospect to trade" debate... but think of the HUGE return you would get by trading Joey Votto this offseason. I'm not necessarily saying I would do it. But if you are the Reds with a bunch of holes all over the roster and a pretty darn good 1B prospect ready to go, and someone comes at you with multiple young MLB ready talents for Votto, you have to think long and hard right?
