A week or so ago a guy from Baseball America (Ben Badler) mentioned a trade idea he had (meaning it's not rumored or anything like that.)
He thought of a trade that would help both teams. It's a prospect for prospect swap in Devin Mesoraco to the Red Sox for shortstop Jose Iglesias.
Mesoraco would give the Sox the catcher they desperately need as Salty and Tek are both struggling.
Iglesias would give the Reds a Gold Glove shortstop who could be in the bigs by September and could be the best short stop the Reds have had since Larkin.
It would also end the position speculation with Billy Hamilton, making him the Reds' second baseman of the future.
Cincinnati can do this because they have Grandal (who is already on the 40-man roster) and could possibly be ready ready for a September call up in 2012.
