I think the worst trade is Encarnacion+ for Rolen. The Reds aren't competing this year; why grab Rolen, who gets paid the rest of this year plus $11 million next year. I mean, the Reds could be making a play at next year but still, why?

And for the Jays, I don't see why they'd make this deal other than to cut costs....

This.

It makes absolutely no sense for the Reds to take on that salary. And it makes absolutely no sense for the Jays to trade Rolen and nobody else. WTF
