Reds chatter

MLBTradeRumors.com is citing mlb.com's Mark Sheldon for the fact that the Reds are interested in Jamey Carroll, formerly of the Indians. But if you actually read the post is says the opposite. Carroll apparently was interested in playing for the Reds, but the Reds don't think he's good enough at short.

Mark Sheldon does say the Reds want a left handed hitter that can play short and second, and indicated the Reds have discussed Craig Counsell. (Don't worry, he abandonded that hideous stance.) Presumably, that would create a platoon for Janish and provide a back-up for BP, but might it also allow the Reds to trade BP mid-season if they follow the Blue Sox Baseball plan and fall out of the race?
