Re: Dunn traded to DBacks
I don't think the two guys are filler. There was are reason that the Reds and Dbacks went down to the wire before this trade was completed.
Jocketty built the Cards into a powerhouse in the central. He built a WS champ and a team that went to the playoffs year in year out. IMO Jocketty isn't an idiot and there was a reason he traded Dunn to the DBacks. The Reds as an organizatoin "aren't drunk"
To me Dunn was overvalued by Redszone. When 4/5 of the teams in baseball don't put in a claim for Dunn that tells me something. He also spent the last two trading deadlines commanding very little in return.
