But, even if they are putting something together, it could just as easily fall apart.
I'm more interested in if people like the potential deal or not?
I do. I'd rather trade Corcino than Cingrani. And I'm glad we're not trading any of our major league pitching starters. I think everyone will be happy to see Stubbs gone so Dusty can't misuse him in the lineup.
If he remains healthy, Ellsbury is a huge upgrade, and that's an understatement. Plus, he will be playing for a contract since it's his last year and then he turns a free agent after 2013. A good situation for the Reds to have a guy hungry to impress.
