    Thats the problem we need to find a taker for Griffey so we could have Dunn in left,Willy Mo in center,Kearns in RIGHT.I garrentee if Jr was'nt a Red then we would have already signed those three to contracts extentions.

    Any deal for Dunn should ONLY include pitchers. The Reds need to get as much good pitching as they can if they trade Dunn.

    One thing is for sure, if Dunn is traded the Reds will be cleaning house. You won't know very many players on the field for the Reds.

    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.

    Where's BigDonkey44?

    I think he has inside information. Maybe he can tell us if this is true.

    You're looking at: HR/BB/AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS

    Pujols:

    169 322 .333 .413 .622 1.035 
    Dunn:
    PHP Code:
    129 380 .250 .386 .521 .907 
    Pujols is a better young hitter than Dunn, assuming that the rumors about Pujols's age are untrue. If they both really are 25 years old, then yeah Pujols is better "young" hitter than Dunn.

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

    Re: Adam Dunn Trade Rumor!

    i doubt this rumor has much validity. However, if Dunn has to go, send him to Florida, they have become my official second favorite team over the past 10 years - this may make them almost even with the Reds.

    I have no doubt Dan O is talking about things every day and maybee even put a feeler out with FL for Kearns or Pena and they came back asking for Dunn. Its how many of these things get started (rumors). It probably has little to do with who the Reds are actually looking to trade.

    Just my $0.02.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    If we trade one of the top 10 hitters in the game and don't get an ESTABLISHED top notch pitcher then i may become a cubs fan or something. That would be redicuous. This is a rediculous deal i don't care who the prospects are. No prospects are sure bets. Olson is good but no where near the Beckett Willis or Burnett league of pitchers. Hermedia is solid. Stokes strikes out a lot.

    Personally i think Ryan Freel is better than Castillo. I think if Freel played 2B full time he'd get a lot better at it defensively. He wouldn't be a gold glover or anything but hed be adequate. Lopez has looked sharp at SS. There is really no need for Castillo.

    We'd be getting hosed if this deal went down, no doubt.

    Terrible trade, but considering the source I'm not worried it's for real

    I'm not denying that Pujols is a better hitter than Dunn. I've admitted it. I'm just saying the margin between the two isn't nearly as far as some think it is.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
