Maybe Jocketty has risen from his nappy.

From ESPN Insider today:

Reds scout Texas catchers

The Cincinnati Reds had a scout at the Texas-Oakland game on Saturday in order to take a look at catchers Gerald Laird and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.  The Rangers are apparently willing to part with one of the two, and the Reds are looking to add a catcher since none of their three catchers are under contract for next season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.


Now, I know there are always scouts at games, but isn't it nice to think that maybe Uncle Walt has noticed that Texas has a surplus of young talented catching prospects and that the Reds have no catchers signed for next year?  I'd personally like Saltalamacchia because that's a fun name to say (Tigrmetrics?).

What is the likelihood of this actually happening?  What would it take to get it done?  Would a Bailey / Thompson plus one or two marginal prospects be enough?

I know we've surmised about this before, but I just like to hope.
