    I'd love to resign Dunn for 5 yr 70M, might go as high as 4 yr 70M

    The market is what it is and Dunn would be a bargain at that price. But we'd need to do it ASAP before Teix gets on the market with Boras asking 20-30M for him (???)

    I've long felt it was malarkey that the Reds can't afford Dunn - if we can't afford him, we certainly will be relegating ourselves to baseball fiefdom for a long, long time. We'd be foolish not to pick up the option - no draft pick is going to equal what Dunn is. Reds management needs to tell Marty to knock it off. Frankly, the Reds would go a long way if they picked up a good PR person to talk up this team instead of having so many tearing down the product. I'm not talking a shill, although it could look like that, but someone that can talk up the good more often.

    Dear Lord, are we ever going to learn?

    We'd regret that contract almost as soon as it was signed. It's not about whether the deal is reasonable in the market. It's about what the contract means to the rest of the Cincinnati Reds. You tie up $17 million a year on one guy, and you spend the length of the contract looking for bargains everywhere else.

    If the Reds are going to sign anyone to a deal like that, it needs to be a starting pitcher. Definitely not a good-but-not-great corner outfielder who seems like the classic example of a guy who will not age especially well.
