    With Votto back now that Canada is gone that sounds about right. He wouldn't get ab's now

    Does he have any lateral quickness? He's our left fielder of the future.

    I wish he could still soak up ab's from Barker, and Jaque Jones somehow...also was this a group of moves that included Alonso, or just Alonso?

    I know what you mean but we do need some vets on this team.Ward will likely make the team but spend a lot of time on the bench.I don't think we want to do that to any of the young guys that we just sent down.

    There goes the thought of Valaika winning the SS job out of camp.

    That was never a real possibility.

    Agon getting out on the field and getting some guys back from the WBC meant he and a lot of the young guys were going to be sent out.

    While it was impossible for Valaika to win the SS job, it was great to see what he can do with the bat - even if it was against some young pitching.

    We need some sort of light at the end of the tunnel at SS - Hairston Jr., Keppinger, Janish, and Gonzalez are a combined 9 for 56 with 7 strikeouts and only 3 walks

    Re: Alonso sent down

    Alonso and the rest will still see AB's in the big league camp. This purely procedural. Happens every year. The in house non-roster invitees get sent down to the minor league camp when it starts. The minor league camp starts this week, so it is best for them to train with their potential teammates.

    They will get just as many AB's with the major league team as if they were in the big league camp, the only difference is that they have to use the minor league clubhouse.

    Alonso was optioned to AA Carolina. Does that mean he'll still go to minor league camp now?

    Yep, they all train at the same facility, so the AA and A camps are all in the same place. Again, the AA camp and A camp are separated by name only. The major league clubhouse and minor league clubhouse are literally next door to each other, and they all share the same cloverleaf practice field.

    I think he had to go to a specific camp since he is on the 40 man roster, but that is just a guess.

    hope that we see Frazier and Alonso again in september.

    It could be worse. A year ago right now almost Bruce got sent down. That really broke my heart.

    This is the way things must be. This team can't be made up of only early 20 somethings. We are going to be young anyway. Ward is more needed on the big club than Alonso, at least out of camp. Frazier is the future, not tomorrow, but in the next 1-2 years. I'm simply happy that we have young guys we are really looking forward to coming up.
