    Think This Deal Would Fly For Both Sides?

    Would probably take some negotiations by the Dodgers to get Dunn to agree to a contract extension but out in LA, they say Kemp could be available this offseason:

    Dunn for Broxton and Kemp.
    Reds get bullpen help and a young outfielder that might be able to play CF.

    Opinions?
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    Giving up Dunn and not getting a rotation starter back would make me drink Drano...

    Yes, but until everyone says that it can happen, it will be asked again and again.

    Dunn for a closer?

    What a disaster that would be.

    why do the reds want another outfielder?

    what leads you to believe that Kemp is a better option in CF than Bruce or Hamilton?

    I really doubt LA gives up a few years of controlling Broxton, an excellent closer-in-the-making, for a half-year of Dunn at 8-9MM (he can't be traded till 6/15). Not to mention Kemp.

    2-3 years ago we were talking about Dunn for Billingsley and Broxton. That bird flew and its flock with it.

    If I were the Reds, I'd do it in a heart beat, but I don't think there's anyway the Dodgers would do that trade.

    Dunn for Billingsley. Straight up, end of discussion.

    I doubt the Dodgers ever give up Chad, but he's a local guy, and that's who I'd want for Adam Dunn.

    No need for Broxton- he doesn't give the Reds anything that Jared Burton can't offer.
    Go BLUE!!!

    There's no rule saying that you can't have multiple good relievers, especially considering that Broxton has proven a lot more than Burton has.

    I'm not in favour of this trade, but you're kidding yourself if you think Broxton would add little to the team.

    Oh boy, improving the rotation while forcing the Reds to play Ryan Freel and or Norris Hopper everyday in the OF.

    I'd rather stay with the status quo pitching and hope we can develop Cueto and light a fire under Bailey, rather than deplete the offense by trading Dunn.

    not gonna happen. The odds are better that Dunns option will not be picked than him approving a trade in the off-season.

    I don't know about that. If he knows the Reds were going to trade you at the break to god knows who, why wouldn't he just go ahead and approve a trade now and be in the same place all year? Assuming it's someplace he wouldn't mind playing.
