Agreed, in which case, I would have to think that Yasmani has a much better chance of being a regular 1b for the Reds than Yonder. I just don't see the Reds moving Votto after this season, which may in fact be the best course of action for the entire organization. This is Yonder's last option year which means he has to be somewhere in the bigs in 2012. The Reds will either have to deal him at that point or let him rot on the bench if Votto isn't moved. Yasmani will have 3 years to develop on the farm and could be the sensible replacement if Votto is not extended further.
