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.
Well, two of us feel this way anyway. Rebuilding comes with some pain.
