I'm sorry if this has been addressed in one of the many Dunn-related threads, but this item from today's Los Angeles Times has me wondering why the Reds are wanting, among other things, a second baseman in return.
From the L.A. Times:
"The Angels had preliminary discussions with Cincinnati about acquiring Dunn, according to a baseball source, but those talks quickly ended when the Reds requested a proven major league starting pitcher, a major league infielder — preferably a second baseman — and a top prospect.
Those demands were considered too hefty for a player whose $13-million option for 2008 would be voided if he's traded, meaning he could become a free agent after this season. The Angels probably wouldn't even trade second baseman Howie Kendrick for Dunn straight up, according to the source."
