Rosenthal notes

Ken Rosenthal has a new column up, with the big "above the fold" item being a look at the job Dayton Moore is doing in Kansas City, stockpiling arms in exchange for various spare parts.

Rosenthal includes this tidbit:

Left-hander Mark Redman seems almost certain to go to a contender. Outfielder Matt Stairs, second baseman Mark Grudzielanek and first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz are among the other candidates to be traded.

I'm curious about whether the Rangers are sniffing around on a Redman/Stairs combo, given their stated desire to get a starting pitcher and a bat without giving up the farm. It would be a low-grade upgrade, but I could see the Rangers doing it if the cost were nothing more than a couple of low-level live arms -- Kometani and Funk, or something like that.

Rosenthal also says that the D-Backs are probably not going to deal Luis Gonzalez, whom the Rangers were supposedly interested in.
