Hard to lament a trade when the guy who is position-blocking Alonso is a legitimate MVP candidate.
Yeah. I love what Alonso brings to the table. The guy, when healthy, can absolutely rake. He is a pure hitter. But for the next three years, he isn't beating out Votto unless Votto gets seriously hurt and teams can't really plan on that. I would still like to see a little more of him in left field because of his bat, but if the Reds do trade him, it isn't like they are playing Scott Hatteberg at first right now.
