Yesterday during the game (2nd inning), Marty sounded 100% sure that the Reds can't afford to pick up Dunn's option. When he was discussing trades with John Fay, Marty said (exact words):
He said this so emphatically that he knew it was the case."Dont you think this team has to move somebody by August 1st, like players that won't be back next year....Adam Dunn's not gonna be back here next year, lets face facts, its a 13 million dollar option. I cant imagine this team is going to take the risk of picking up his option and then try to trade him."
Personally, I was shocked when I heard this. To me, I don't think there is a chance in the world that the Reds won't pick it up if he isn't traded.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THE REDS WILL DO? Not what do you want them to do, or what you think they should do. What will they do?
I just want to see who is crazy here, me or Marty.
****Disclaimer, this is NOT a Marty bashing thread, or an Adam Dunn thread. This IS a "Will the Reds pick up his option?"
