    Re: I hate to say it, but it's time for Dunn to go.

    If Casey goes before Dunn I will be pissed.

    How can anyone trade Sean Casey? Stupidest Idea Ever IMO. Dunn can't even keep a good batting average.


    Edit: And everyone saying you would be done as Reds fans if they trade Dunn - you aren't real fans then. :thumbdown

    I believe only one person said that. And I'm sure he's just... angry.

    Re: I hate to say it, but it's time for Dunn to go.

    If we could pry decent pitching that has has success in the majors I'd do it. I'm talking a Halladay, Webb, Buerhle, Peavy, Beckett, Oswalt, etc. Sadly though, the "big boys" who want Dunn and can afford Dunn lack these kinda guys. LA has some solid pitching prospects but the other "big boys" don't.

    I think the answer is a three team trade. Maybe the Dodgers would get Dunn, send a slew of prospects and maybe Werth to Toronto, and the Reds would get Halladay. Something like that.

    Thus proving bat avg is a pretty bad stat to judge players on.

    I wouldn't be done - I'll never be done - but my interest will certainly wane. I will buy less tickets, and less merchandise. My website pretty much demands that I keep up with what's going on, but I've already started to emotionally distance myself from the team. Trading Dunn would only make me care less.

    We've entered the place where you have to stop expecting playoff runs and consistent success. Bill James said something about being a fan in Kansas City that resonates with me right now - something about how it's different being a fan of a team like the Royals. You look at the big picture less, and you have to try to enjoy the small moments, the individual accomplishments, the wins you see in person. That's heavily paraphrased I'm sure, but that was the gist of it.

    We're no different from Royals fans until we get a different GM. And we probably won't get a GM capable of turning everything around until we're rid of John Allen and Carl Lindner.

    So it's probably going to be awhile before things are good again.

    I still care, and I'm still a fan, but like I said trading Dunn would just distance me even further.

    Look at these guys OVERRATED.

    Trade Casey instead of Dunn what? You've sat too many days indian style smoking the peace pipe with Bill James. Dunn has more trade value and he's lazy. He doesn't want to be here. He doesn't care if he K's more than any other person in baseball history. It's all gravy to Adam. Sean Casey hits over .300 and is what the Reds don't have much of: contact hitting. Plus, he's one of the few guys I'm actually proud of the Reds having on their team. He's great in the community, gives 100% on the field, and he's a good role model not just for young players coming up through the system but for any young person he meets. Not to mention obvious reasons, we cannot not sign Dunn next year with Griff and Milton still on the payroll.

    I know all ya Dunn lovers enjoy going out at night and playing "where's my sac fly" in the backseat in the parking lot at BeerBellies but come on!

    don't even have to scout 'em to determine that. You don't ubderstand, DanO doesn't need the stats. He is endowed with the ability to see things that others can't.
