I don't want to turn this into a Poor Adam Dunn thread but this quote from Thom really intrigued me.
"In the short time Iíve been here, Iíve found (Dunn) to be an outgoing, just a nice guy,Ē Thom Brennaman says. ďBut Iím not sure if any of the fans have seen him really warm to being a Red. I donít know why that is, and that might be completely inaccurate.
ĒBut it seems to me a guy like him could have really owned this town, because he has such an engaging personality ... Iíve thought this about a lot of different players in a lot of different towns: If the players never make it feel like they want to be one with the fans, the fans are not going to treat them like they are. I think the fans want to see that Adam wants to be a Red forever. They want to feel like he wants to be here.ď
I don't know what he has to do to make people believe that he wants to be a Red. He didn't have to sign that deal when Wayne took over. He could have gone to arbitration and bailed after his 6th year.
