A’s reportedly trade Aaron Miles to Reds for Willy Taveras, Adam Rosales

ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting the A’s have traded infielder Aaron Miles to the Cincinnati Reds for outfielder Willy Taveras and third baseman Adam Rosales. I don’t have anything confirmed at the moment, but will update soon. Rosales has played all over the infield, and could be the backup utility man the A’s have sought, particularly for shortstop. Not sure how Taveras’ addition would affect the possible acquisition of outfielder Gabe Gross, which was reported by mlb.com. … Again, nothing concrete on this right now …

    i guess we’re trying to corner the market on sucky 4-a outfielders. forget about shedding tears, travis buck is probably huddled in a dark corner by now with his arms wrapped around his knees wondering what happened…

    So are we on the hook for Taveras’s contract? Is this an NBA style money dump?
