I would love to share lots and lots of Reds scoop for you from Tuesday the Winter Meetings, but so far I have very little.
The Denver Post along with my Denver colleague at MLB.com, Thomas Harding, heard the Rockies are interested in RHP Edinson Volquez in a possible trade for Huston Street. Because of the money Street makes, $8 million next season, that would be a tough match to make a trade. I will keep you posted if I hear anything.
When I head up to the Reds’ suite, I’m expected some sort of update on Brandon Phillips. I’d imagine Walt Jocketty has had a chance to meet with Phillips’ agents.
The most exciting thing today, if you can call it exciting, was watching over a dozen reporters and photographers and TV people following the Marlins owner and executives through the lobby like paparazzi following the Kardashians through the lobby. They apparently had left a meeting with Albert Pujols’ people and were headed back to the suite. No comments were given.
Until next time, stay tuned…
