    Orioles Interested in Dunn...

    From the Baltimore Sun....

    "If the Orioles are unable to get a bat through free agency, they could also explore one in a trade. The Seattle Mariners' Richie Sexson and the Cincinnati Reds' Adam Dunn are among the players who might be available at the right price. The problem for the Orioles is that both teams would probably want Erik Bedard in return, and he is considered the most untouchable player in the organization.

    The Orioles met with nearly a dozen teams at the meetings and though there were some inquiries about the availability of star shortstop Miguel Tejada , nearly every team asked about Bedard and the organization's top young pitchers.

    "The interest was very strong," Duquette said. "These guys are guys we don't want to trade unless it is a unique situation.""

    I have been wondering why there hasn't been Dunn to the Orioles speculation. They seem like a good fit, but only if they are willing to move Eric Bedard.

    Hey, imagine if the Reds trade Dunn to the Orioles and he wins a triple crown? He's an old 27 I tell you.

    You heard it here first. Frank Robinson. That's all you need to know. The Reds will rue the day they trade Dunn to the Birds for a pitcher. The ghost of Milt Pappas appears in my mind. We have a madman at the helm.

    Dunn is a pretty good offensive player, but he can never be the entire all around player that Frank Robinson was.

    And with FA looming, we are likely trading 2 years of Dunn.

    Well if we can trade Dunn to Baltimore than I say pull the trigger Krivsky! I offer Baltimore this deal:

    Baltimore trades: Nick Markakis(OF) and Daniel Cabrera(SP)

    Cincinnati trades: Adam Dunn and low level prospect

    OR:

    Baltimore trades: Nick Markakis and Kris Benson

    Cincinnati trades: Adam Dunn

    The chances of Peter Angelos agreeing to the trade of Nick Markakis are just about nil.

    Any day of the week and twice on Sunday. I suggested this trade in earlier posts and would love to see it happen. Tejada is still an all star.

    Markakis is terrific, but I think Baltimore is very unlikely to trade him. And beware, beware of D-Cab. His almost no-no got a lot of attention, but he is a walk machine, can't throw strikes to save his life.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I know Cabrera has been wild but he is an intriguing pitcher that throws 100 mph. Remember when Jose Rijo was young when the Reds acquired him from Oakland for Dave Parker. It wasn't till he came to Cincinnati where he matured. The same could be said about Cabrera.


    I don't know if you can get Nick Markakis in the same deal because owner Peter Angelos loves the guy. But if you can get both Marakis and Cabrera for Dunn, it is a no brainer.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
