    Wow! It looks like a 2 year deal to me. I can't see us paying him 13 million, but then again Griffeys contract will be done by then right? Man, that seems like a lot of money. Glad it's done!

    I like. The more I think of it 13 million might be doable, but we'll see. NIce signing. It feels like we have a new GM

    For all the griping I've seen on here since the Kullman firing, it sure looks like to me that the new GM has something Dan O'Brien never had--the get 'er done syndrome. IOW's, O'Brien would still be thinking about it while Wayne just goes out and does it. I like that.

    The debate will go on about Billy Ball and whether Wayne K is a disciple or not, but I get the feeling he wants to win. And that's the bottom line, isn't it??

    I will say I think the new owner has a lot to do with it. Not that Dan O was good, but now with a mgmt who wants to win and is involved things are looking up!

    YESSSS!

    I am looking into season tickets NOW!

    Adam Dunn a red for 3 more years at least. I can't forsee a situation in which he shouldn't be a red for a long, long time!

    Not that I want to see him dealt, but with that contract, he could become quite the hot commodity.

    Great News!!!

    FWIW...rotoworld.com did not like it..

    Reds signed first baseman Adam Dunn to a two-year, $18 million contract with a club option for 2008.
    Dunn gets salaries of $7.5 million for this season and $10.5 million for 2007. The club has an option for a $13 million salary in 2008, which it can buy out for $500,000. We're not particularly impressed with this for either Dunn or the Reds. With the possibility of a 50-homer season looming, Dunn was foolish to sell his first year of free agency for $13 million, especially when there are teams like the Red Sox and Astros out there that will appreciate his OBP more than the Reds do. And Cincinnati will someday regret not taking this opportunity to lock Dunn up to a true long-term deal. Dunn is just 26, and while he doesn't have much in the way of defensive value, he's probably going to be one of the game's top-10 hitters for at least the next half dozen years. Five years and $60 million would have been perfectly reasonable for both sides. Feb. 13 - 11:08 pm et

    I can kinda see the criticism toward Dunn, but the criticism of the Reds is plain silly. This is a very good deal for the Reds. If Adam has a career-ending rodeo injury, the Reds are only guaranteeing $18.5 million.

    The Reds get only 2 years of risk and 3 years of benefit.

    Excellent deal.

The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Reading all this acclamation here for a front office move, feels more like the Twilight Zone than Redszone. Kinda worried I've entered an altertnate universe.

    I have been a Reds Fan as long as I can remember.

    The last five years have been pretty hard to live with.

    My loyalty to the players never really changed. It' just that I kinda lost faith in Ownership and the front office.

    God knows our pitching still sucks and we have a long way to go but now I feel a spark of HOPE.
