    I was kind of hoping that lack of performance would be the reason for not offering a LT deal. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. Some guys have gotten LT deals with little performance at all.

    Do you feel he is not performing?

    No I was talking about the reasoning by the FO. Not liking a work ehtic will keep you from an LT deal but bad performance won't

    If Dunn is traded thats an obvious message to the fans how much obrien and ownership has failed to show that the future is bright and the orginization is progressing in a positive light.

    Geez! Isn't there a seminar or something that DOB and DM could go to in order to learn how to run/manage a baseball team? They have them for everything else!

    Maybe a "How to Manage a Baseball Team for Dummies" book.

    Agreed. This is a guy that brongs people to the stand and Lindner knows this.


    Where are all you coming up with this clubbing to 4am and stuff like that BS. Also playing video games till 4am? Give me a break you guys are just throwing crap around to attempt to make a point.

    The fact of the matter is Dunn is the best reds' hitter since Eric Davis. He has had an OBP over .350 since since 2001, over .370 every season but but 1 during that span, he is a threat for 40+ homeruns a year, a .906 career OPS, scores close to 100 runs a year and is probabably a good bet to drive in atleast 100 runs every year. He is also average at the worst in the field. He has shifted from RF, LF, and 1B with minimal complaint (1B he does complain some but still does it)

    I have always heard he is a very mellow guy. Love fishing, doesn't like the big city hoopla (quoted n saying that in SI 2 weeks ago.) Also in that magazine article said CIncinnati was perfect for him because of it's size and he wouldn't want to be in a NY market.

    So basically the only thing you have on him in BA, which i think is negated by OBP (BA is the most overrated stat in baseball), his K's, sac flies, and video games.
    SO basically you got little...


    so why r we considering trading him? Oh yea... because we are the reds

    I think you may be over reacting. The information in your first paragraph above was provided by an extremely reliable poster who does have inside information.

    However, having said that... if you go back and re-read the thread, no one was "throwing crap around" to make a point. Most, if not all, were saying that true or untrue, they didn't see it as a problem. He does work nights after all and still has plenty of time to get his beauty sleep.

    One more thing.... just because he fishes doesn't mean he doesn't also like to party. But if his partying doesn't get in the way of his baseball, most don't care. BTW, no one said anything about him clubbing until 4 am.

    Relax; no one is spreading crap about Adam.

    LOL! Didn't we cover this today in another thread.

    No one (me) is throwing crap around. I share what I know. And when I speculate or guess, I say so. End of story.
