It COULD have been Bay. We could have made a trade with Pittsburgh for him, they're idiots. Not with Boston though, they are smart enough to sign him long term.
Too bad! He's young, cheap, used to playing for crappy teams, etc... would have been a coupe. Now he's had a taste of a REAL Organization, why would he go to the Reds?
Holliday it is, and we're going to have to spend an ARM (pitching, prospects) and a LEG (long term contract, $100M+) to get him.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
