I'm going by this:
4:50pm: Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star reports that the Jays will pay all of Rolen's 2009 salary, nearly $4MM. Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi report that an undisclosed amount of cash is changing hands.

I'd say yes to the 1st question but, like others have mentioned, the Reds need to do more between now and April 2010.
