Reds lineup vs. Giants
**UPDATE** The Braves acquired center fielder Michael Bourn from the Astros Sunday morning in exchange for Jordan Schafer and three Minor League pitchers – left-hander Brett Oberholtzer and right-handers Paul Clemens and Juan Abreu. As I reported last night, the Reds cooled on Bourn because of a high asking price in return.
As of 11 am, the Reds have not made a deal but it doesn’t mean the club has been idle. Most of the baseball ops department has been on site throughout the weekend with GM Walt Jocketty.
“So far, we have to do with what we’ve got,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “I’ll be glad when this is over. It’s the same every year. It’s an uncomfortable feeling for some guys who might have a job, the fact they might lose a job and guys that have to relocate their families in the middle of a season. That’s always unpleasant.”
