    Taveras and Rosales traded to Oakland for Aaron Miles and PTBNL/Cash

    http://twitter.com/Buster_ESPN/statuses/8506178247

    Reds and Oakland completed trade of Aaron Miles and PTBNL or cash for Willy Taveras and Adam Rosales... More on our site momentarily.

    I always like Rosales because I think his bat is better than what we saw at the major league level, but we have tons of players to replace him with in the minors.

    Interesting that Billy Beane would take Willy Taveras. I cant imagine what type of terrible play hes going to put out in oakland. Maybe he will hit gaps and maybe get a few extra doubles even though hes never really hit for any type of double power.

    Aaron Miles is making 1.7 million this year not 2.7 because the Cubs were paying 1 million of 2010s salary.

    For as much as we all hated Willy Aaron Miles has been much much worse in recent time.

    So essentially, we traded Taveras and Rosales for Cabrera, Miles and PTBNL with no increase in payroll? Walt is putting together some kind of offseason. Come on Gomes...

    Hmmmm....I like the sound of this! Sounds like Jocketty is securing some Major League READY infield depth.

    The difference is Miles doesn't have a place to play on this team and can't get 400 at-bats

    The details haven't been made public yet, but I would doubt that the $1 mil that the Cubs sent over necessarily follows Miles to the Reds.

    I can see the Reds getting $1.3 mil in salary relief, but not $2.7 mil.

    Now this begs the question; Is this salary relief going to go towards another FA (Damon), or towards OC's contract?

    This....there isn't the illusion that he is coming in as a starter.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    The money was supposed to be for Miles 2010 salary.

    Miles is a suitable infield back-up. We don't have whipping boy Tavares anymore. Rosales may be in a better situation for him. All of this sounds good to me.

    We need to have an emergency meeting to decide who will take his place. There's not much time until ST so we need to make a decision fast.
