    Rumor: Dunn to Pads for Hensley, Hampson, PTBNL

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. -- Terrance Mann (Field of Dreams)

    This has been floating around for 3-4 days.

    I have a low opinion of Krivsky as a GM and even I am not buying that rumor.

    The "story" is

    The latest trade rumour involving slugger Adam Dunn has the Cincinnati Reds sending the outfielder to the power-starved San Diego Padres for pitchers Clay Hensley and Justin Hampson and a third player.
    Well, I'll say that third player better be Jesus Christ Himself, because this would be a pathetic trade.

    Why do these yahoos think since WK very likely got fleeced once, we're going to get fleeced again? What a bunch of whooey!

    The second assault on the same problem should always come from a different direction.

    I thought this rumor had been put to bed three days ago:

    No truth in Dunn to Padres rumor

    Getty Images
    San Diego Padres' GM Kevin Towers told a writer from the San Diego Union-Tribune that the rumor of Adam Dunn going to the team for pitchers Clay Hensley and Justin Hampson "wasn't worth chasing."

    Reds' general manager Wayne Krivsky stuck to his policy of not commenting on trade rumors.

    Me neither. Regardless of anyone's opinion of Krivsky, I think most of us would agree Kevin Towers isn't an idiot, and he'd have to be to not jump on that deal immediately. So the logical conclusion is that it was never on the table -- at least, not from our side, which is the part that matters.

    But nobody ever goes on the DL...
    "Sometimes, it's not the sexiest moves that put you over the top," Krivsky said. "It's a series of transactions that help you get there."

    I hope not cause we'd have to talk about it in the Peanut Gallery.

    Word on the street is that the Padres also wanted to include Judas in on the deal, but he mentioned something about "going to hang out" and could not be reached for comment.
    Witty signature.

    Yes, but even though he can walk on water, there will be fans who will not be happy. "Jesus Christ! What is he doing?". But if he's a relief pitcher, he could wrack up the saves!
