It is actually the perfect example. Do what is best for the team. Now whether or not that is making the move, I don't know. I like to think I do, but we never really will unless we actually try it. But I don't like the idea that Votto simply can't move off of first base because he is good, but Alonso can because Votto is there. All of that despite the fact that Votto profiles incredibly better in left than Alonso does.
