    He's involved. And for a guy who is a long shot to acquire, it's more than he would have to do.

    On either account, Alonso could be named as a PTBNL. As far as the DL, I believe that only applies to MLB Disabled Lists.

    But regardless, Alonso could be traded. He would just have to be a player to be named later.

    If true I would hope that they hang on to Harang, if possible. That front 4 would be silly.

    Give them Arroyo.

    Not saying it's true, but if it is, it looks like Jocketty has done more than just make a courtesy call.

    Cincinnati have also been involved. Word is the Rangers and Reds have attractive packages
    Considering what the Jays are asking for Halladay, I'd call offereing them an attractive package is a very bold move.

    The Reds have interest in Halladay huh?

    That Walt sure is a genuis, inquire about a guy who you have no intention of even making an offer for so when it seeps out it appears like we are out there trying. Guy is slick! Problem with that Walt, no on believes you have legitimate interest in a real difference maker.

    But you're right I doubt he even made an offer.

    Except that moving on it now instead of next season means your return is much better.

    They'll move if they're compelled to move. It's pretty simple.

    My wife has said the Reds have attractive packages.

    If nothing else, maybe WJ can drive up the price for the Cardinals and make them pay dearly. I'm just glad the Reds front office appears to consume O2 and produce CO2. I had my doubts for a while.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I doubt the Cards have the talent that Ricciardi would demand in return.

    Never mind. I got my Holliday's and Halladay's mixed up.

    Don't mind me.

    Understandable. There's been a lot of that going around lately.

    I believe him. Walt has done it before.

    But keep on hating, for whatever reason.

    This certainly is the kind of deal that has been in Jocketty's wheelhouse down the years. I can't imagine that Halladay would even consider approving a trade to the Reds, sadly.

    I know in headier times, some ballplayers took 15 million a year instead of 16 million to play in favorable conditions, but this economic downturn has emboldened a lot of GMs to play el cheapo with impunity, thus forcing the hands of soon-to-be FAs. If Castellini can find it in his heart to shell out the cash, Halladay's a Red. There's nothing else standing in the way of this deal.
