I know it is only 2 weeks into the season, but seeing the Reds have decided against playing Votto on an everyday basis I have to wonder what a 1st base platoon with Votto and Cantu would have looked like. With the Reds sitting at 1-3 vs left handed pitching it sure would be nice to have a right handed bat that can feast on left handed pitching. I just find it hard to believe, seeing how the Reds have struggled against left handed pitching for the last few season, that management would go into the season with two left handed batters at 1st.
