    I can't disagree with this move strongly enough. Bruce is a great rf. Play him in rf. If you want a backup 1b, acquire a real one.

    Wowzer, why is Votto not on the DL yet? Don't understand how this team is managed by Walt at times.

    Wow, Price seems to think anyone at anytime can play 1B.

    I almost said "No way the Reds would actually do this" (thinking the OP was suggesting the Reds should do this). I didn't realize they were actually doing it. Wow.

    But they'd have to take some scrub off the 40-man roster. That's a dealbreaker for Walt.

    Trading for a first baseman? Haha, you're a funny guy, Norm. You amuse me (not like a clown). That would make waaaaaaaay too much sense at this point. And the Reds would have to remove some dead weight from their 40-man. Oh, I already covered that?

    How hard could it be?

    I'll be at the game tonight. Interested to see this.

    Why would they have to take someone off the 40 man?

    Re: Bruce at 1st

    Why is this difficult?

    Votto - 15 day DL
    Soto - Call up and play him at first every day

    I am assuming this would take a couple of phone calls.

    GABP outfield isn't that big, so I'm sure Skip can handle himself out there. If Votto's DL trip isn't expected to be long term, I don't have a problem mixing and matching in the meantime. Bruce is a good athlete, I'm sure he'll do fine. If not, we'll find out against the Cubs who we should beat regardless.

    Re: Bruce at 1st

    Of all the outfielders, how can Ryan Ludwick not be forced to learn 1b? If not Ludwick, why not Schumaker?

    Re: Bruce at 1st

    It might be a test to see if he can play 1B as a prelude to acquing an OF who can't play first well. Any bat the Reds try to acquire is likely to be essentially replacing Votto's bat in the lineup. So if they have an OF they like who can't handle 1B well, then somebody in the OF might have to slot over to 1B. Just a thought.
