    They can plan for that contingency, I suppose (and probably should to be safe), but I can't imagine that they won't be able to lock up two of those once they sort out who they want to target. They have money, not limitless, but they do have resources. They will allocate that money to the staff, I would imagine, once they sort out who they are dealing.

    Looks like Profar is off the market. Rangers about to trade Kinsler to the Tigers for Prince Fielder.

    Can Kinsler play 3rd? Could make Miggy the 1B and Phillips to Detroit back on.

    Castellanos at 3rd?

    I think Castellanos to 3rd is the expectation

    The Blue Jays website lists 5 questions to be answered. Among them is whether Bautista is traded. And Phillips is mentioned as a desirable upgrade for them at 2b and Hanigan as an upgrade at C.

    I wonder....

    Bautista for Phillips, Hanigan and a prospect?

    Dang. The Tigers Rangers trade has serious ramifications for the Reds. It kills off trades with either team. The only remaining logical trade partners are the BlueJays, and the Royals.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Texas not as dumb as I thought they may be.

    You find a way to unblock the top prospect (arguably) in baseball.

    The good news with this trade is that the baseball world no longer has to suffer through watching Prince Fielder play first base. His middle name should be "Not A Good"

    ......I don't quible with who they got rid of and I really don't mind what they got back if the money balances. Prince's contract still has $150 million on it over 6 years. He's already a big guy, but....

    Great deal for Detroit. Again...depending on how the cash lines up.

    Soto can be the prospect. Their seemed to like his potential as a "2B Prospect" the other day.

    I suspect Soto won't get this done. What do we really think about something like Phillips, Hanigan, and Yorman for Bautista? {That's a name I think they'd want]

    Good news is that with Profar off the market, the Reds have a good shot at David Price now.
