According to the MLB Network, Denard Span has declined a trade to the Cincinnati Reds the Reds have possibly changed in regards to their interest in Span. As far as I can tell, Span doesn't have a no-trade clause in his contract, although this seems moot now. Jon Heyman says it isn't happening.

Are the Reds posturing with this information, hoping to get the Twins to lower their price at the last minute to get something done? They could have found a new target. Or perhaps they're just happier to put their resources in other directions.

It's all guess work, but for now I'm happy to see Denard stay in Minnesota. If additional details are disclosed on this situation, you can be sure we'll be discussing them right here.
