    Adam Dunn Trade Rumor!

    Adam Dunn to Marlins for 2 top pitching prospects, and infielder, and Luis Castillo.

    Tracy said it on the air, and says it's from a reliable source he knows in Florida (I believe him...he usually doesn't make stuff up for the sake of making stuff up)

    Again, only a rumor

    Re: Adam Dunn Trade Rumor!

    Any idea of the prospects?

    My gut says its a dumb move. We need prospects but this teams needs results now. I want us to sign AD longterm and chuck aither Kearns or Pena. Kearns stock is down right now but I imagine Pena can fetch something.

    KEEP DUNN! Sign him longterm darnit.

    And Luis Castillo?

    A Speed guy with bad wheels and the Reds have a glut at the position.

    Sounds like hooey.

    This trade would make absolutely no sense and would make the Reds much worse in the long run. Therefore, I'm virtually certain that Dan O'brien is considering it.

    True enough. Big Adam's the kind of guy you build a team around. Fans love watching strapping HR hitters launch majestic shots into the stands. Granted, our starting pitching is abysmal, but you don't just "fix" it by trading away one of the crown jewels.

    With our pitching, we will still get to see that Dunn or no Dunn.

    (17 walks/4 k's)

    i'm fine with trading dunn if it makes the team better...in my opinion, this does not accomplish that...let's hope this goes nowhere...

    It's pretty clear, at least from this seat, that Luis Castillo is having a cascade problem running up and down his leg. It's been his hip flexor, hamstring and quad in quick succession. Castillo's had some structural problems in the past and I'm getting conflicting messages on whether the latest problems could be related to them. In any case, he seems to be taxed by explosive, quick movements, even in straight lines. A rest or even a DL stint could help heal it, but this is reaching the chronic stage quickly. That would leave Castillo as a speedy player without the ability to play speedy.

    The trade is tough to ctritique without knowing the prospects. But, if the prospects are Yorman Bazardo and Scott Olsen, the trade could be very enticing. I don't really like the idea of getting castillo becasue we already have two capable major league 2nd basemen on the roster plus we have Bergolla. If Castillo was say replaced by Jason Stokes or Josh Willingham, then I might have to pull the trigger.

    I might have to call in a missile strike on the greater Miami area.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I would have thought DanO's street would be the target.
