    I think Jay Bruce's more rapid than expected rise and the fact the Reds are already so left handed at the plate have made Votto into trade bait. Griffey or Dunn (if not both) will still be around at the start of 2008 as will Hamilton. Plus Bruce and Voto are both LH batters. Also Valentin may be playing his way into the starting catcher's job; and, they might keep Hatteburg. They have just too many lefties. I think the choice has been made that between Bruce and Votto, Bruce is the long term keeper.

    That said Votto would draw bigger fish in the trade market if he had some major league experience.

    Me too. People don't really consideer him a top notch prospect, so we won't get that much in a trade. I would like to see what hes got before we consider trading him.

    Votto is our first legitimate 1st base prospect in many years. I would find it difficult to trade him unless we got some outstanding prospects.
