John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer has the latest on the Reds, after talking with GM Walt Jocketty.
- Asked about trading Joey Votto, Jocketty replied, "Oh God, no."
- The Reds are restricted by their payroll, but Jocketty said, "not yet" as far as trading players to make the budget. Check out our Reds Offseason Outlook for details on their commitments.
- If the Reds can't negotiate a new deal with Ramon Hernandez, Fay feels that they might consider free agent catcher Miguel Olivo.
