From the Providence Journal:
The Cincinnati Reds are talking to the Blue Jays about the possibility of acquiring infielder Scott Rolen in exchange for minor-league prospect Yonder Alonso. The first baseman is a product of the University of Miami and carries a big bat. He was the Reds’ first pick (seventh overall) in the 2008 draft.
I’m not saying I’m sold on Alonso and I’m not saying he’s untouchable, but for a 3B that’ll be 35 before Opening Day next season that’s owed $11M and has recently had trouble staying healthy?
This deal would convince me that Jocketty has gone senile.
