ESPN's Jim Bowden's Proposed Reds/Rays Trade

"Wade Davis, RHP, and B.J. Upton, CF, to Cincinnati; Yonder Alonso, 1B, and Yasmani Grandal, C, to Tampa Bay: -- The Rays have been searching for inexpensive long-term solutions at first base and catcher. They match up well with the Reds in this proposed four-player trade. The Rays would have Alonso to play first and Grandal to catch. Both players are Florida natives and should hit and be integral parts of the Rays? future. The Reds could put Davis near the top of their rotation after Johnny Cueto while B.J. Upton would give them improvement in terms of speed, power and defense while balancing out their lineup with another right-handed bat. (He or Drew Stubbs would have to move to left field in this scenario, but that would be one awesome defensive outfield.) Of course, the Reds would have to make the deal contingent on signing Upton long-term. The Reds have Devin Mesoraco as their long-term catcher andJoey Votto as their long term first baseman, which allows them to make this deal. A win-win for both franchises." - ESPN's Jim Bowden
