Re: Jocketty: Reds could trade a shortstop
By the way, I still think a DiDi-centered deal for Ellsbury makes a ton of sense for both sides. Add a pitcher (Corcino, Cingrani, Leake- in that order of preference for me) and I'd imagine the Sox have a hard time turning that down.
Yes he'd be a one year rental, but a superb one for the Reds. Would start in CF but could move to LF if/when Hamilton is ready. Assuming he's healthy, Reds would tender him and get a first round pick when he leaves via FA next year.
