    new post on MLBtraderumors about Dunn to the Nationals...

    per mlbtraderumors.com

    "Adam Dunn To The Nationals?
    Surprisingly, with roughly four hours to ago, Adam Dunn's most likely suitor still appears to be the Washington Nationals.

    Will Carroll says that Dunn would love to be reunited with good friend Austin Kearns in Washington, and might sign an extension there. He could become the face of the franchise. The problem is that the Nats don't have what the Reds want, so a third team would have to get involved.

    Just speculating, but I could see some bad blood lingering between the two teams over the Gary Majewski thing. That has to make you wonder how Wayne Krivsky would ever let Dunn end up in Washington. Maybe he and Jim Bowden can let bygones be bygones."

    now if Bowden can get Wily Mo, he has the same outfield he had in Cincinnati!!

    Don't know if you were joking or not, but that was actually rumored too.

    Someone in the SunDeck proposed an EdE - Dunn for Zimmerman - Rauch - Cordero deal. Sounds unlikely, but I think I might actually do that deal...

    Here's something from MLBTR...though it is just speculation.

    Here's a fun trade possibility: the Red Sox are interested in Chad Cordero (uh, who wouldn't be?) and may be dangling Wily Mo Pena, whom Jim Bowden is known to...how should I put this?...really like. Bowden hasn't acquired a toolsy outfielder for a couple of weeks now, so if the Sox found a way to sweeten the deal, perhaps Trader Jim would take the bait.

    The Carroll blurb also mentions that the Nats are talking with the Red Sox, Tigers and Mets about their relievers Cordero and Rauch. Since the Nats don't have enough prospects to offer, perhaps a three-way deal could be in the offing? If we could somehow land Maybin or Milledge in the process, this would be a great deal.

    Nats get : Adam Dunn
    Mets get: Chad Cordero, Todd Coffey
    Reds get: Lastings Milledge, Jon Rauch, and another prospect

    How 'bout that?

    The other prospect would have to be incredible.

    Milledge wasn't on the table for Joe Blanton, so I'd think that he couldn't be dealt for Cordero either.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    The Mets are extremely thin in the outfield right now with Beltran on the DL. I don't see them dealing Milledge w/out getting an OF in return.

    What about this:

    Nats get: Adam Dunn
    Tigers get: Chad Cordero, David Weathers
    Reds get: Cameron Maybin, Jon Rauch

    I know, these are shots in the dark. However, we do know that these GMs are exchanging phone calls right now, so it's fun to speculate.

    Here's a doozy for you:

    Nats get: Adam Dunn
    Mets get: Ken Griffey, Chad Cordero
    Reds get: Lastings Milledge, Jon Rauch, Mike Pelfrey

    Okay, I'll stop now.

    Maybin will not be moving. Last year the Yankees asked for him in the Sheffield deal and they Tigers said absolutely no way. They love Maybin.

    I'm sorry, but if the Reds don't get Zimmerman back from the Nats, or two really good pitching prospects from a 3rd team, the deal should not happen.

    The Nats clearly want Dunn. Exploit that. I'd sweeten the deal with almost anyone not named Bailey, Bruce, and Cueto. Zimmerman is the RH bat the Reds need to compliment Hamilton, Bruce, and Votto. Do everything you can to make it happen.
