    Dunn signs 2 year deal w/club option for 2008

    Per Marc's Blog:

    So much for that dinner -- Dunn signs

    Adam Dunn has agreed to a two-year deal with a club option for 2008. Dunn will get $7.5 million this year, $10.5 million in 2007 and $13 million if the option is picked up. The buyout of that year is $500,000.

    Funny, the one call I made today that wasn't returned was to Dunn's agent. Guess he was busy.



    Discuss away, seems like a good deal for the Reds for this year and a good deal for the future years as long as Dunn stays productive and keeps improving.

    How many days did Dan O'Brien not get this dunn in?

    How many days did Krivsky get this dunn in?

    This isn't what I'd classify as long term, but essentially three years is much much better than what we were faced with before. Color me a fan of the deal.

    Very good news. I fully expect Adam to be worth the 13 mil in 08. Maybe by then things will have changed enough to convince him to sign a new one.

    Great deal by the new regime.. Krivisky is moving with blinding speed. It's an amazing contrast to Dan O'Boring.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Pretty good deal for the Reds, glad to see Krivsky got this done before camp.

    I think this is also a very fair deal for both sides. It doesn't kill the payroll and yet it gives Dunn the payday he's earned.

    Good move all around.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    This is great news. This locks up Dunn for 3 years and gives us a chance to try to extend his contract later. Great job Krivsky.

    Makes Dunn an even more valuable trade pawn should the right pitching come available.

    That pretty much sums it up. In less than a week Krivsky's eclipsed DanO's two-plus years on the job.
