By Tim Dierkes [July 31 at 2:40pm CST]
The Reds acquired third baseman Scott Rolen, according to SI's Jon Heyman (via Twitter). The next step is Rolen approving the trade.

Why in the world do the Reds need is salary, his age, and injury history. If they only traded Edwin and got money back I guess I'd be okay with it.

Would love it if it was Alonso.

I wouldn't want any part of the mediocre Edwin Encarnacion. That guy can't play defense.

Alonso would be a steep price to pay in a salary dump I would think. Maybe EE involved?

if the Reds are getting Rolen wouldnt it make sense for them to give Encarnacion?
what do the Reds do with EE if he stays?

Just as bad of a deal as the Braves/Sox Laroche/Kotchman deal

It was either this off season or the last one, they were discussing moving EE to LF. ;-D

This really doesn't make any sense for either team right now to me. I guess I have to see what the Jays get, though.
