    Rumor from 1530: Adam Dunn to San Diego

    Dunn to San Diego for Clay Hensley and Justin Hansen. Hensley has been a starter in the past. Young and cheap. One bad outing scews his ERA this yrea ini only six starts. Hansen another cheap young good arm. 0.81 ERA in 12 games this year. Heard it on 1530 the Sports Animal. Greg Doyle got an anonimous email about the possible trade and started the rumor.

    Re: Dunn rumor!

    So most trade rumors and ideas I see involve only pitchers. Where oh where will our offense come from? With Dunn out of the lineup we will average a run less than we have. We must get a good bat as well if we are to trade him. Oh wait! We have Norris Hopper! What was I thinking? I take it all back.

    If that's the return, Krivsky should be fired immediately.

    No kidding, I am very open for a trade, but only for our advantage (duh), not simply to get rid of him. This sounds like it would be jsut to say we made a trade.

    I can't imagine after hearing what we asked for from the Angels that we would trade him to the Padres for that.

    Any Reds player of strong trade value MUST be used to get pitching, middle relief in particular. That is this teams biggest weakness by far. We may have to sacrifice a little offense but the current offensive output can't overcome the bad bullpen.

    The best teams make middle relief irrelevant by having great starting pitching. If your starters average 7 innings, then you only need 3 good short relievers. You don't trade starting players for middle relievers. Any Reds player of strong trade value MUST be used to get STARTING pitching and lots of it. A. You can never have too much good starting pitching. B. If you have too much, they can fill in the pen.

    C'mon people. You act like you don't understand the economics of baseball.

    1) Adam Dunn is likely to be a rent-a-player. Yes, I understand the team has 48 hours to negotiate or the Reds could pick up the option then trade him, yaddayadddayadda...

    2) It's no longer strictly about who you get in return. Sometimes it's about freeing up $'s. Trading Sean Casey for Dave Williams was a GREAT trade. It had everything to do with freeing up 9.5 million versus getting Dave Williams.

    Just be smarter when evaluating a trade. That said, I would like the Reds to get as much as possible, but that doesn't mean ARod is coming in return for Adam Dunn. Clay Henseley will be a very, very good pitcher.

    Again with this argument.

    Dunn won't be replaced by a chimp in a Reds uniform. He will be replaced by a major league hitter. Maybe even Votto, if the left field experiment goes well.

    Will this replacement be Dunn? No. But again... thinking that all production from that spot goes away is flawed and short sighted.

    The offense will very likely take a step back. But if the 'pen is improved (possibly greatly), the Reds will go a long way toward a return to winning ways.

    Let's also remember... the idea behind trading Dunn is to get young cheap talent and to free up payroll for next year. A real closer? A better bench? All the things we've been saying is the doom of this year's squad.
    I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.

    Whatever helps ya sleep at night, buddy. But if you could, explain to me why you think this to be a fact? Cause, [que Bill Lumberg voice] "Yeeaahh, I'm just going to go ahead and disagree with you on that one."
