    Does that include minor league DL?

    But does that apply to the minor league DL?

    There was a post here a couple days ago about it.

    I understand turning potential talent into actual production, but wowzies.

    BTF says EE and Yonder Alonso for Rolen. My mind has been blown.

    Alonso's struggled in Double-A this summer ... but isn't it a bit early to give up on him? Even with Joey Votto entrenched with the big club?
    Here's the contrary argument.

    Rolen is only 34. He has several good years left. He is a huge upgrade at third, defensively and offensively.

    EE isn't worth too much. He could even be considered a liability given his own contract. The Jays may be less than excited to get him.

    Alonso is a good prospect but he plays Votto's position. His potential spot is filled on the roster with a free agent who plays the outfield and hits. Votto to LF was always a pipe dream.

    It does seem like a lot to give up. But sometimes you have to overpay rather than stay in neutral.

    I'm not thrilled at all, but can understand the deal and at least it should make the Reds better for next year.

    This is impossible.

    EE for Rolen, straight up, is debatable.

    But Alonso?

    This might be one of the worst (non hindsight) trade fleecings ever.

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    The Reds are so stupid sometimes it genuinely hurts. Scott Rolen is having a fluke of a season, will more than likely be the player he was in 2007 and 2008, and on top of giving up EdE they give up Alonso?

    It's hard to care anymore, this might be the final straw for me.

    #Reds source says reports of Encarnacion plus Alonso for Rolen are not accurate. We'll see...
