That's what I see ideally for Henry if he sticks with the Reds and isn't traded. Votto first base, BP at second, Zack at short, Todd at third, Didi the defensive specialist backing SS and HRod the play everywhere sub and switch hitter off the bench. That's a darn good infield and pretty good bench too. HRod would still get 400 ABs in that arrangement if can play some left too.
If Zack doesn't get is stroke back he might just lose that starting job to Didi though, if Didi keeps hitting with some pop and can maintain a higher average and OBP. I'd see Zack getting traded then - I don't really envision him as a bench player for some reason..
