    I can't think of a teams top prospect that was ever handled this way,

    I was referring to Chapman here, but didn't make it clear. My bad.

You aren't going to move Votto, who has made himself into a top tier 1b in the game, and Alonso doesn't have a place to play. If he can play LF and is able to hit then he provides the Reds great value, more so than any trade value he possesses. When drafted many people thought he had the ability to become a .300/.400/.500+ player. If the Reds still feel he had that type of ability, he has more value to the Reds in LF than he does in any trade.
    Except He was clearly never thought of that way by anyone. Most on this board advocated moving Votto, the team's BEST player in favor of Alonso. He's had to concentrate so much on his defense in LF that it is likely affecting him at the plate. Plus he's had to deal with some injuries which have sappped his power. I won't be surprised to see him drop out of the top 10 in most lists after this season. The Reds put an added burden on a player coming off an injury AND have him at AAA, probably too soon based on his development, not age.

    Yeah, because comparing Tex to Alonso is apples to apples. oy vey.
