    no thanks on castillo. 30 year with no pop and bad legs.

    he's not playing today BTW.

    The Marlins remain hopeful that 2B Luis Castillo can avoid the disabled list and return to action next week. Castillo strained his left quadriceps muscle on Monday while running to first base.

    Trading for Burnett doesn'y make much sense since he will be a FA after the year. If we really want him and can afford him (which we can't) then we should just wait until the off-season to shell ot the big bucks for him without wasting Dunn.

    It would be different if we were in the middle of a penant chase, but getting Burnett only helps us for this year which doesn't make much sense.

    I think you are right on with that one.

    We're considering trading the best young hitter in the game for two unproven players and an alright leadoff man? Wow, if DO's stock with the fans wasn't low enough, this surely would put it there.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Dunn is pretty far off from being the best young player in the game.

    Behind Pujols, he's the best.

    As OBM said, only Pujols is a better young hitter. The only other young hitters I would possibly consider in the same league as Dunn would be Cabrera, Crawford, Teixeira, and maybe Blalock.

    Re: Adam Dunn Trade Rumor!

    Beckett or Burnett only please.

    Was at all 4 games in Philly. Team needs a lot of help. If you keep Dunn and do not build anything around him, we will never get better.

    Cant imagine why we would want Castillo unless D'Lo going too ??


    Would you trade Dunn and FeLo for Gavin Floyd and Jimmy Rollins ?

    Good point. Wipe out Miami and DanO will just make a bad trade with someone else. Know thy enemy.

    WHY? unless 2 of the prospects become studs, it makes no sense. castillo is good, but he plays a position where we actually have prospects. how in the world can you trade dunn. you better get 2 no.1 starters if dunn goes. you cannot, CANNOT, trade a guy of his skill at his age.

    Can you name a better young hitter (25 & under)? Now remember, he said "hitter" not "player" so fielding doesn't come into play.

    I'd imagine that it should be pretty easy since Dunn is so far off IYO.

    No. Not trying to sound mean, but not only is Dunn for Floyd a coupe for the Phillies, but so would Lopez for Rollins. Rollins is Cesar Izturis circa 2003. Pass.

    Re: Adam Dunn Trade Rumor!

    Did he say when the trade will be announced?

    I will hate this deal unless the Reds receive Jason Vargas, Scott Olsen, and Jeremy Hermida, and even another top prospect.

    It would be hard to be a Reds fan if they trade Dunn. He's the only thing that's keeps me interested when the team is losing.

    what makes you think that we need to get two number one starters for Dunn. We would be incredibly lucky to get one for Dunn.

    Teams simply don't trade good young pitchers like hitters since they have more trade value.
