    Dunn is fine (Marc Lancaster)

    Quote Originally Posted by Marc Lancasters Blog

    The medical staff knew Dunn "probably" had broken his hand at least once last season, but couldn't be sure because he never let them X-ray it. When Dunn went home at the end of the season, he saw a friend of his in Texas who is an orthopedist and asked the doc to take a look at his hand.

    "He talked to him about it and the guy said look, at this point, you did this so long ago that the only thing that I would do if it was really bothering you that much is put you in a splint for a couple of weeks," said Mann. "Adam basically said look, Iím finished playing for the year, itís going to get plenty of rest, I donít need to do that."

    Mann emphasized -- "That was back at the end of the season, that wasnít last week," as opposed to how the timeline was laid out in the original report.

    Doc Kremchek saw the article Saturday morning and called Mann, who has been in Sarasota for a week and a half. Mann was just as surprised as Kremchek and got in touch with Dunn on Saturday.

    "I said ĎAdam, whatís the story? Is this thing still bothering you?í He said, ĎAbsolutely not.í"

    Mann said he had already talked to Dunn about a week earlier, just checking in, and the new first baseman had told him everything was going fine with his offseason -- he was hitting and working out as normal. According to Mann, the type of injury Dunn probably had would have healed itself with the downtime during the offseason.

    Bottom line, everyone with the Reds expects Dunn to be at full strength from the first day of spring training.

    "We are in no way, shape or form worried about this at all," said Mann.
    Didnt see it posted, so here ya go.

    That's good news anyway. I find this version more plausible than the flat denial that the Reds issued this morning.

    I wonder how many people were ticked off at Narron for spilling these beans? Sounds like Dr. K. would be one of them. Can't imagine this is improving his chances of a long career with the Reds, given Mr. C's stated preference for clear communication with the public.

    Dunn for one, and the Reds running out and saying the opposite would have to be two.

    Wonder what Narron was going for by telling this?

    The article by Hal said that Narron said it in responce to somebody critisizing Dunn. Jerry probably meant to be sticking up for Adam, and accidentally disturbed up a hornets nest.

    Absolutely on the mark. I don't think Narron is the latest conspiracy theorist against Adam Dunn.
