    Does anyone think about that? If he has made it clear to DanO that he isnt interested in playing for the Reds past his current contract, then isnt it the wisest of ideas to trade him for a top shelf stud pitcher and maybe a 1st round pick???
    Thats my point exactly. Everyday it becomes more apparent to me that the likelihood of Dunn wanting to stay becomes a wish instead of a reality. If he walks we get next to nothing back compensation wise.

    yes time will tell but it maybe the only window the reds have for established pitching. Offer me santana and kotchamn and the reliever who just got sent down damn 4get name from the angels plus there number 1 i take that gamble. Dunn is an established star with power so yes i would ask for alot! But the angels actually may do the deal its a possibility there freakin loaded with prospects.

    The Reds are in no immediate risk of Dunn walking. In fact, they haven't even seriously talked LTC with the guy according to O'Brien. Until they make a serious effort to sign him to a solid LTC, there's simply no reason to worry about losing him. Now, if Dunn eventually turns down every serious attempt to sign him long term and expresses his with to test the market, then by all means- move him for real value.

    But right now, there should be no rush to move the best player on the team.

    I trade Dunn, for like, Beckett, Willis, or Peavy. No way do I trade him for an unproven pitcher. I do NOT trust Gullett to help a developing, newly debuting pitcher at the major-league level.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I dunno, i just don't see this team letting him walk....

    I think they'll really break the bank to keep him.........IF he starts hitting!

    That's a bad trade IMHO.

    Clemens and Petitte have done well.. Truth is they have already made their mark.

    Adam is still young and could repaint the wall.

    Re: Dunn going to be traded?

    I was within ear-shot of WGN radio last weekend, and listened to the Cubs/Rockies game on Saturday. It was the same day LaTroy Hawkins was traded to the Giants for a couple minor league pitchers. During the post-game show, the callers and the host spent a lot of time throwing around the idea of Chicago working a trade for Dunn. They were upset the Cubs got young pitchers for Hawkins instead of trying to add another bat to their lineup. I was surprised to hear so much Cincinnati-related talk on a WGN post-game show, but it shows that Adam Dunn is one of the most sought after players in baseball right now. I say strike while the iron's hot, and work a deal for some proven young pitching.
