    Re: Catcher

    Texas' extra catchers are very good prospects.... that would take a lot to acquire. Not sure the cost, it would certainly be worth exploring, but I doubt it comes at a discout price.

    Anyways, my point was that I think the Reds are satisfied with Ross, and being that he should be back fairly soon, I don't see them taking on a big contract like Hernandez, or overpaying for a legit prospect type just to fill what they see as a 10-15 day void.

    No, the price would be steep. However, the Reds definitely have what Texas needs -- young MLB-ready starters. In particular, Bailey and Belisle, both of whom happen to be native Texans. It's really a perfect matchup, both teams trading from surplus to meet need. The teams will have their own reads on these players, and they may have very different grades on them than we'd suspect, but it certainly appears from the outside like the basis for a deal would be staring these 2 GMs in the face. I find it especially intriguing that both Bailey and Salty followed the same path in ST -- with the major league club almost the entire time, then demoted to AAA....
