Thought it would be a good idea to start a new trade deadline thread for today's rumors.
Here's a couple Reds related items:
Elliott adds that the Reds "met last night to decide to come up with a package to land third baseman Scott Rolen."I would offer the Royals Willy Taveras and cash for Mark Teahen. If they didn't want Taveras, I'd send them Stubbs for Teahen and a prospect. Teahen is cheap and would give the Reds flexibility at LF and 3B. The Reds have way too many CFers. It's not going to set the world on fire but I think there is a fit here.Two players are on the Cubs' radar: Mark Teahen of the Royals and Jeremy Hermida of the Marlins. The Royals are looking for a center fielder in return, however. Teahen has $1.37MM left on his contract. Hermida has $847K remaining. Both players can be under team control through 2011.
