Walt is just being diplomatic.
A press person asks him a question about the catching situation.
He really has no idea if it's worth it to trade Hanigan or even Mez.
Why say something that boxes him into a corner?
It's highly unlikely the Reds go with 3 catchers. I would not worry.
Walt got Choo and Parra last season. Parra was not a trade, but a great move. I know it makes the winter more boring, but I kind of like the results that slow, methodical Walt gives as opposed to the constant random, roster churn of Krivisky and Bowden.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
