    Guess what? An Adam Dunn rumor

    from Baseball Prospectus...

    The Reds seem less and less likely to make a big move. Every deal for Adam Dunn has been scuttled early by Dunn's option being voided by a deal and by Wayne Krivsky's asking price. One wild scenario that's been thrown out there is a deal with the Yankees, where Dunn could fill in for Jason Giambi and the Reds would get back Shelley Duncan and Jeff Karstens, plus one more prospect. That doesn't seem like the right kind of return, so I'm discounting the rumor, though it does add some credence to another rumor--that of Walt Jocketty to Cincinnati. I'll let you connect the dots.
    A lot of people have wondered if Dave Duncan would come with LaRussa and Jocketty here, leaving his son. I think they meant he would if his other son is here.

    You gotta be tough with a name like Shelly. "How do you dooooo?"

    He's actually Dave Duncan, like his father. Shelly is his middle name. I'd rather not have the entire Duncan family in Cincy. It was tried once with the Boone's and ended pretty poorly, IMO.

    Yeah but I'd suggest Dave Duncan's a much better coach than Bob Boone could ever dream of being.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    And Matt Boone makes Shelley Duncan look like Babe Ruth.


    Yes, another Matt Boone slam. That's 3 on the year so far. The joy never ends...

    "Chief" is a better nickname (if your first name is Sheldon)

    I may be mistaken but I believe that Karstens was dealt for the Molina brother a few days ago. I'll check......disregard that was Kennard, Jeff. Duncan a big RHB with some power? That might have some truth to it.

    Thought maybe Bryan Braswell would get there but I think an arm injury in AA ended it for him. Big kid left hander that pitched two years at Toledo

    Duncan is a very energetic and fun loving type of guy it seems from one of the games I have watched of his. Seems like a good clubhouse guy, especially if he hits.
