Even after getting swept at home in a four-game series by the Mets and falling five games under .500, the Reds won’t be sellers, GM Walt Jocketty said Friday.
Jocketty also worked to dispel the notion that the Reds could trade Ramon Hernandez while trying to stay in the race. According to John Fay, Jocketty said Hernandez offers a greater value for the rest of this year than what the Reds would get in return and that he’d be OK with top prospect Devin Mesoraco staying in Triple-A until September.
The Giants are believed to be very interested in acquiring Hernandez if he’s made available.
If the Reds make a big move, it might be for speedster Michael Bourn. Dusty Baker is just dying for a true leadoff hitter, and while the Reds are set in center field with Drew Stubbs, they could play in Bourn in left. It doesn’t appear that Cincinnati is willing to part with the kind of talent it’d take to land Ubaldo Jimenez.
