According to a baseball source, the Reds are on the verge of trading catcher Jason LaRue to the Kansas City Royals. The Reds will receive a player to be named later. No cash involved in the deal.
Of course you know I favored the idea of trading David Ross for something over trading LaRue for nothing, but without knowing what the demand was for Ross, it's hard to complain. Anyway, I supposed that could still happen. Probably not, though, because Krivsky has already demonstrated an obvious distaste for anyone he didn't personally bring into the organization.
The good news: LaRue gets to hang with Luke Hudson again. We at RHM wish LaRue the best of luck.
