    Don't worry, I listened to the games all weekend. It was just Marty and one of the sportswriter guests saying that if Howsam was GM he wouldn't care that Dunn had a good OBP and SLG, he'd trade Dunn because he didn't have enough RBI... In other words, just Marty nonsense (not even a rumor). There was a whole thread about it.

    Not just Cutler, but Lance has been railing on trading Dunn also...

    here is a copy of Lance's website:

    Reasons for trading Adam Dunn
    For:
    He has the most value and will bring the most in return of any Red on the roster.
    He will command in the 6.5 to 8 million dollar range next year in arbitration......10 to 11-mill in 2007 and then he's a free agent.
    You need to change the make-up of the line-up and rid yourself of some strikeouts
    He's on pace to strikeout 178 times
    He's a liability in the OF and on the bases
    It eliminates the 4 OF dilemma
    He's a poor hitter with runners in scoring position

    Ahhh, listen to the converts joining the fold: Richard Skinner, Tom Gamble, Alan Cutler. I don't know if that helps my case or hurts it
    Most that know baseball, know Dunn makes the most sense to deal........because he brings you the most in return. Casey, Kearns and Jr would bring little in return. You've invested too much time/effort in Pena to deal him right now.

    Re: Dunn going to be traded?

    Kearnsy, I was on my way back from my cousin's wedding and since FM radio stations were impossible to listen to, I listened to Cutler's Sportstalk.

    Basically his argument was to trade Dunn who in Cutler's opinion will price himself out of Cincinnati (valid point), said that he would rather trade Dunn for a top flight pitching prospect rather than waiting too long and getting virtually nothing.

    I found myself actually agreeing with him, because I feel the Reds would fair much better with a Rich Harden or a Kyle Davies without Dunn than with Dunn without a stud pitcher.

    I just want to see a rotation that I could trust, and trading Dunn helps us help ourselves.

    I don't think DanO is in a hurry to do any deal for any player on the roster. He'll listen to all offers and...

    He's currently evaluating all options.

    trading dunn upside- kearns and pena have ideal playing style which includes better contact

    BUT....

    trading dunn downside- dunn is consistently on the field

    You mean WMP who has never hit above .270 at any level and K's every 3 ab's can claim to have a better chance at hitting the ball than Dunn?

    better contact as in compared to dunn not as in to the average MLB everyday player

    you cant say that WMP would not be an improvement on contact alone than dunn especially with the way he was playing right before he got injured.

    kearns might have a lower BA right now but he has better contact ABILITY than dunn (pena too) b/c we all know kearns CAN hit .300 unlike dunn

    Sure I can, he K's at the same rate as Dunn. How does that increase contact?
