    Thats my point just because people on this board think that Dunn has "high value" doesnt necessarily make it so.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    I think it's a mortal lock that most will not like the return for Dunn.

    I think this will soon be somebody else's problem, not the Reds'. I don't think Krivsky will live with both Griff and Dunn next year. They have power, but at this stage little else.

    Griff is very hard to deal. Dunn has a $13 million option coming up in 2008, and it's hard to see Krivsky ever paying it.

    Draw whatever conclusion you want.

    Not if it's the same as the return for Kearns and Lopez.

    Nothing.

    Unless the return ended up being a #1 and an OF consistently OPS'ing over .900, this board will explode.

    I don't think Wayne nets that in return for Dunn.

    we have seen the profile of the kind of player than WK is enamored with and the Twins won during his time there with no bonafide power hitter(Morneau became the first Twin to hit 30 HRs in a season in forever).
    And they play on concrete in a football stadium, that has a lot to do with that approach.

    I will party the day that Dunn is traded
    Yep, those 40 HR/100RBI/100 Run guys pop up weekly.

    Hurray Eddie Milner!!!

    I'm not saying he could - I'm simply answering to the expectations of many here.

    What us fans actually want is more aging middle relievers and infielders.

    Good times!

    He doesn't have to pay Dunn, just decline the option and his option voids if he is traded. Thus if you are going to trade and hope to get any kind of return it must be done this off-season.

    The Reds have major issues to deal with in the off-season and nothing is likely off the table. What worries me is that after watching the string of mostly nothings that WK has acquired since the break I am not sure he knows how to identify somthings. He may be able to but he hasn't shown the ability to this point. Instead he traded for guys that had some success but when you dug deeper into their numbers it pointed to the fact that it was mostly smoke and mirrors.

    We'll see how WK reacts without the pressure of a penant race on his mind. I for one am anxious to see what he comes up with.

    The only one who can help/fix Adam Dunn is Adam Dunn. If he comes to Spring Training focused and 25 lbs lighter I say look out MVP.

    I for one am not optimistic about what he will come up with.

    So who is going to replace Dunn if hes traded? Denorfia, Hopper or Wise?
    If you dont pick up a big RBI guy to replace Dunn then we will be seeing guys like Griffey, Encarnacion, Aurilia being walked in key situations.
