    AJ Bastian, a Blue Jays' beat writer, tweets that "all is quiet." And also says "don't believe other reports you hear right now."

    FWIW.

    Re: Rolen Talks Revived

    I tell you what, Walt apparently still has the goo for Rolen much in the same way he went after Nate's favorite player, Willy T.

    If they put it together, I hope it works out better than the Willy move. I doubt it, but here's to hope right?

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I'm relieved to hear that EE's involved as I can't imagine the "others" then refers to Alonso. "The others"--identity and number--probably has to do with the dollars.

    Joey Votto played LF for team Canada , he played it 5 games when he was first recalled from Louisville and played it some at Louisville its not a foreign position to him.

    Yonder Alonso can not be technically traded till the middle of Aug. 1 year from his signing with the Reds.

    If Walt is stupid enough to even consider a 1 for 1 Rolen/ Alonso trade he should be fired on the spot. This is a 34 year old version of Rolen not the All Star version who played for the Phillies.

    After the Dead line I would move Votto to LF for the rest of the season and move Phillips to SS. Give Fraizer a shot a 2nd and have 1st ready for Alonso next year.

    Re: Rolen Talks Revived

    Before I die, I'd love to get an inside look into real, live, actual trade discussions leading up to the deadline, and then take a look at what is being simultaneously reported about such discussions. I'd imagine the two versions would be nearly unrecognizable from one another.

    I'm beginning to feel like it might actually be worth taking a 24 hour nap from baseball right about now, and coming back tomorrow to see what actually transpired...













    but of course I won't.
    Go BLUE!!!
