    EE to Giants?/Bailey traded?

    From Fay:

    Rumors and random thoughts as I wonder whether you get cell phone reception at the craps tables in the Bellagio:

    --Walt Jocketty sounded pretty confident that the Reds will get something done at the Winter Meetings, which start Monday at the aforementioned Bellagio in Las Vegas. "We've had a lot of discussions with clubs," he said. "Hopefully, we'll be able to follow up and get something done." They better I put together a depth chart for the Sunday paper and the outfield is about as thin Manute Bol.

    --Heard from a reliable source today that the Giants are interested in the Edwin Encarnacion. I think Encarnacion is the most likely Red to be traded for two reasons: He's got high-value and the Reds are deep in the minors at third base.

    --Heard from an unreliable source (random e-mail) that Homer Bailey had been traded. The reason the e-mailer said Bailey had been trades is he had packed up and left Houston. Why Bailey would go anywhere upon being traded i don't know. But I'd put Bailey right behind Encarnacion on the most-likely-to-be-traded list.

    --If Encarnacion remains a Reds he almost certainly will remain at third base. Joey Votto will remain at first. "The only way we would move them is if we traded for a third baseman or first baseman," Jocketty said. "We're not going to move just to move them."

    --Jocketty got a chuckle at the Votto-to-Washington Nationals talk. Is that Votto going to get traded? "No." I don't see Jimmy B. as being a Reds trading partner as long as Jocketty's in charge. The two have not made a trade since the Jeff Brantley-for-Dmitri Young deal in 1997. "That one didn't work out too good."

    --Nice gesture by the Reds to not raise ticket prices. I'd go a step further and cut the price a buck or so on the cheapest seats. That would be a nice thing to announce at Redsfest.

    --T.R. Sullivan, the MLB.com guy in Texas, is reporting that the Reds are a possible trade partner for catcher Gerald Laird. He hit .276/.329/.398 last year. Fielding percentage doesn't tell you everything about a catcher's defense, but Laird's (.986) was the second lowest of any catcher in AL who caught more than 50 games.

    They've given both these guys every opportunity to play at the big league level. Yes, Bailey is young. But compare his mental makeup vs. Cueto and Volquez. And I love EE, but I can't bare to watch another game where he throws the ball into the dugout. If they somehow can do the following: trade for Beltrae to play third AND get Dye to play left, putting Bruce in Center, then I think you have a team that can compete in the NL Central.

    OBM in the ORG brought up a good idea of Sanchez and Burriss for EE+ a lesser.

    Maybe Molina. Tigers are supposedly going after Laird more aggresively. I just can't see both those guys going for Molina though. Besides, nobody ever said the Giants had interest in Bailey. He may be on his way to the White Sox for all we know.

    If this team needs a back up for Hanigan or a Platoon for Hanigan... I vote for Ivan Rodriguez on a 2-3 Million dollar deal... He still is awesome behind the plate and He is a Champion... And wouldn't cost a draft pick... or a prospect.

    I highly doubt we've traded EE to SFO. I don't think he would fetch Cain and there's really no one else on that roster I'd want...well, Fred Lewis, maybe.

    I think I'd like a bit more than just Sanchez. His 5.00 career ERA isn't impressive, but he does K batters at a high rate.

    Harang
    Volquez
    Arroyo
    Cueto
    Sanchez

    Would certainly be the best rotation we would have had in years.

    Sanchez is an impressive young lefty... He can be unhittable at times, he's cheap, and I only see him getting better. I think Cain would be a tough sell for the Giants because they see themselves on the brink of contending. Cain is young cheap and just plain filthy! If you had to package EE, Bailey, Stubbs/Vailaka, and or Maloney/Roenicke to get Cain and either Sandoval or Burriss, the Reds should do what they could to make that work.
