You see, this is what I was worried about. Even if his salary was was covered by Toronto, I was afraid the Reds would still list his $11MM 2010 salary to the payroll to make it look higher than it really is.
Please tell me they are not going to do that.
What I read was that if the Reds wanted to receive as much cash as they did and
include Encarnacion in the deal, the Blue Jays stipulated that Zach Stewart must
in the deal.
