    Alonso starting at 3B on Monday

    Per the Reds postgame show.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    But I won't be watching whether Alonso can hit, I'll be watching his defense.

    How nice it would be if he can play 3B. To have Alonso and Votto on the corners would be fun to watch for the last month of the season.

    Why not. Played third until he went to UM. The big bat is needed, but against a southpaw?

    Why is it confusing? It seems clear they're not planning on trading Votto, thus they're trying to find a place on the field for Alonso.

    I'll be happy if he defends the position as well as Cairo.

    Out of power following hurricane and cant type long responses on phone, but dont be obtuse. Hes practically set-up to fail. First action at 3b since high school? Insane. That was what the minors were for. Where was this then? What a cluster.

    PS: Dont know why my phone is inserting smileys. Sorry.
