    What is Dunn's contract situation?

    I just heard gammons mentioning that the reds might be shopping adam dunn (of course i like many take his word with a grain of salt) I also know that if dunn is traded, the entire fan base, including myself, would blow a gasket.

    however, it got me to wondering about is his contract situation. is he arbitration eligible after this year, or can he walk. Thanks.

    He's arbitration-eligible. He can't go free agent until after 2007. The problem is that he'll command free-agent type money in arbitration.

    Gammons made mention of the number 20 million in arbitration.

    This payroll can't handle that right now.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It won't be 20, but if he does this season what he did last it'll be near 10

    it depends on his RBI total, at his current rate we may be able to sign him for @ 9million, but I dont think it reaches 10.

    I think its time for Dunn to bat leadoff.

    He makes $4 mill this year, right? And I think he made something like $950 last year.

    I'm more concerned with Dunn's snide comments of late...from Graves, to his chairs, to playing 1B yesterday. It seems like he wants out of here...

    I'm not sure if it's after year 4 or year 5 that you're able to compare yourself to everyone in baseball for arb purposes (rather than just your age/experience peers).

    If it's year 4, then he could be looking at $12 million after this season, give or take.

    Dunn was a 1st basement all the way up until the pro's. He can handle first. He may say he doesnt like playing the position, he is entirely capable of it and should accept the role.

    Snide?

    BTW, how do reporters get this kind of information. The quoted comments about the chair were extensive.... was the guy in the room for the whole thing? Did he have a tape recorder going in order to get it all?

    And the comments between Adam and Jacob sounded like clubhouse banter to me... nothing snide. Again, was the reporter in there at the time?

    Are they allowed free access at any time?

    $20 million for a guy who can't hit a sac fly? I don't think so. :

    He's definately looking at between $8-9M for next year.

    I'd offer him a 3 yr $27M (sound familar) contract Day 1 of the offseason, well, I'd do it sooner, but the Reds don't offer contracts in-season

    Re: What is Dunn's contract situation?

    I was a sports reporter for a short time. Usually (and this was for the Mets and Yankees, each team has it's own rules), there is a designated time before a game when the clubhouse is open to the media. Then it's closed, and reopened to the media after the game.

    Unless the reporter made the whole thing up, this was witnessed first hand.
