Reds Trade Votto to Yankees for Joba

The Reds traded Joey Votto 1b to the Yankees for Joba Chamberlain and prospects. That makes room for Yonder Alonso to make the roster and gives us a live arm.

Joba was set to work out of the bullpen for the Yanks. He will compete for a spot in our starting rotation.

Votto will take over first base for the Yanks and move Mark Teixeira will DH.

April Fools!!!!
