Colorado's Carroll being shipped to Cincy or Cleveland?
Thursday, Dec 6, 2007 6:51 pm EST
The Denver Post reported the Colorado Rockies are on the verge of trading second baseman Jamey Carroll to either the Cincinnati Reds or the Cleveland Indians. The Post reported the trade could be completed soon.

Carroll, the spunky infielder who became a fan favorite with his hustle and slick fielding, wants to be traded so he could get more playing time. Carroll has a $2.3 million guarantee.

The Rockies' search for a veteran second baseman no longer includes Mark Loretta. Loretta, 36, was viewed as possible replacement for Kazuo Matsui. With him out of the mix, that leaves Takahito Iguchi as the top candidate to become the Rockies' new second baseman. Former Cardinal David Eckstein is viewed as a darkhorse candidate.

why would we want him with phillips? I'd say it's more likely to be cleveland.

unless others are correct in their speculation that the Reds might be considering trading Phillips to the O's

Wow. If it is the reds, there would seem to be a trade in works.

The Indians also had that very young player they were pretty high on. Unless hippie is right I don't see the point for either team. He's just as likely to see playing time here than he is in Colorado. With Matsui gone now isn't he likely their 2nd baseman at this point?

I think if they get Carroll he would just be a reserve infielder.

I could see it. If he's cheap, he frees up space so we can make a trade.

Carroll would allow us to get rid of Castro and his expensive bench spot, but we'd have to eat some money I guess? He's already complaining about playing time in Colorado and he won't get any more here.

Take a look at this. It looks like he's going to the Indians.

still, if the Reds were inquiring about him... that, noteworthy, IMO.

That makes more sense that trading Philips...I guess.

Mark my words, Phillips will never play SS for the Reds. They simply aren't that smart...
