A trade is much more likely than a switch to LF. I know it won't happen, but if I am Votto I move off 1B to LF to get away from a stacked position in the NL (Albert, Fielder, Adrian, Howard) Up and comers in Sanchez, Wallace, Davis and possibly Posey as well as guys who could be their teams only All Star Rep in Dunn and LaRoche. It would lock down him as an easy All Star and gives the team more flexiblity. Add in Mesoraco and Grandal possibly at 3B in a couple years:
2012 looks good...
Not gonna happen though.
