I would like to hear Redszone's opinion on this deal. Reds trade OF Adam Dunn to the Minnesota Twins for RHP Matt Garza and RHP Eduardo Morlan. The Twins get their big bat that they need and the Reds acquire a major league ready starter with #1 or 2 potential, plus a power arm with the potential to be a future closer or even a starter.
I would hate to trade Adam Dunn as he is one of ym favorite players of all-time, however, if they are going to trade him, this is the deal you make. There have been rumors of a possible Dunn-for-Garza deal, so I'm not just throwing this our there. Out of all the trade rumors involving Dunn, I think this particular deal makes the most sense for both ballclubs. Imagine pairing Homer Bailey and Matt Garza together for the next decade.
Another deal I would pursue is a Scott Hatteberg plus David Weathers and/or Kyle Lohse to the Yankees for RHP Joba Chamberlain or RHP Ian Kennedy, though I prefer Chamberlain due to his bigger frame. The Yankees are desperate for relief help and a 1B, so I could see them parting with Chamberlain. If Krivsky were to pull off these two deals it would allow him to target young hitting prospects in a deal for Griffey.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on the proposed Dunn deal?
