John Fay reports that Buster Olney of ESPN is saying the Reds are talking to Oakland about a possible trade for Andrew Bailey?
Bailey is 27, has 75 saves and a 2.07 ERA in 3 seasons with the A’s, is arbitration eligible, but under team control until 2015….but he could only throw 41 innings last year as he battled injuries.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
