Let's see; my analysis the other day showed the Reds obtained players via trade, waiver claims and the Rule 5 draft from 15 clubs (half of MLB) and only two trades have occurred with the Twins (Lohse & Castro). One waiver wire claim was placed last week from the Twins, a minor leaguer now with Dayton. The wires are burning between Cincy and the Twin Cities, I'll say.
In that same time, we've also traded
with the Phillies (twice), the Nats (twice), Cleveland, KC, Arizona, Dodgers, A's (twice), and the Padres. I'm sure I'm forgetting others.
Of course, what has been posted is merely a rumor, a conjecture on the part of a writer. I wouldn't disagree that EE might be available. I think that's true of the vast majority of the Reds roster. I'm not familiar with the players alleged to be available from the Twins, so I can't dismiss it. But I can say, it's just a rumor.
I honestly don't believe that EE is in any significant disfavor.
