4:13pm: ESPN's Peter Gammons says the Reds "backed off a potential deal" for Rolen. The Reds are actually hoping to move some contracts, and will listen on Bronson Arroyo, David Weathers, Aaron Harang, and Arthur Rhodes. Plus there's the issue of the Jays not wanting to trade Rolen if they keep Halladay.
I'm still betting it happens. Sounds like posturing to me. Jocketty is like Boras. He likes to wait to the last possible moment hoping to get the best deal possible.
