John Fay, the Reds beat reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer posted to his twitter that according to a Reds source, Cincinnati has “Zero Interest” in Gary Matthews Jr. and they have 5 other players on roster that they would rather have then Matthews Jr
This response makes more sense then this rumor. It would seem to fly in the face of what Jocketty is building to acquire someone like Matthews. And while early in the offseason we talked about reducing payroll, I think the Reds seemed to have arrived at a workable figure for this year. Unloading a contract at this moment seems to be "old news," not something based on reality. That's not to say one of the big guys couldn't be moved later in the season, but it won't be until either Chapman arrives or Volquez is back and doing alright.

I'll just put this in here. From Jon Morosi of Foxsports:
In Arizona now. Source says #Reds telling people they probably won't trade unless there's an injury.
