Absolutely. That would be worse than the Alderson deal by far.

ed_price Source says Encarnacion and minor-leaguer from #Reds to #BlueJays for Rolen. But Alonso doesn't seem right as the minor-leaguer

but there is a minor leaguer with Encarnacion?
Encarnacion on his own would be a terrible move for the Jays.

Yeah...the Jays are cutting payroll. Trading Halladay would be the right thing to do at this point. Encarnacion is simply a significant dropoff from Rolen, both offensively and defensively.


Just saw that it's EE and Alonso. :-b

If it's Alonso, then it's a great deal for the Jays.
