    Leather pants looking at Dunn again!

    per new jersy paper:
    http://www.examiner.com/a-966748~Exp...offseason.html

    "The Nats very nearly traded for Cincinnatiís Adam Dunn in July, and may re-visit that situation again this fall. Dunn and Austin Kearns are close friends, and Dunnís been heard to speak favorably about playing in Washington. "

    How are the Reds and Nationals going to pull that trade off when Dunn's option hasn't been picked up and if it is he would have a no trade clause until June 15th or 2008?

    I can't see the Nationals offering/giving up a decent package for Dunn..

    Dunn would have to waive his no-trade clause. I can't see the Nationals offering enough either.

    The Nats don't have a single player or a package of players I would remotely consider for Dunn.

    I would be hard pressed to take a package of 10 players from the Nationals for Dunn, especially considering Jim's history - including his want to deal away damaged goods.

    I'd have to see if Ryan Zimmerman or EdE could play LF.

    Because if Leatherpants wants Dunn, the list starts with Zimmerman.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Absolutely.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    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

    That would be a good trade for the Reds. Bruce, Votto, Zimmerman, Hamilton, Phillips, would be a great young nucleus. If Reds were to go that route, though, I think EE would have to be traded. I don't see room for him on such a team.

    Can't see Nats giving up Zim though.

    Dunn and EE for Zimmerman? I'd do that too.

    Yep. Otherwise there's really no point in talking about trading Dunn over there.

    I was wondering about a couple of items:

    Would Zimmerman’s numbers improve enough at the GABP over playing in Washington’s stadium to make up for what is lost if Dunn was traded?

    Could Zimmerman be the right handed bat that the Reds need?
    Would Zimmerman’s glove be an upgrade at 3B to improve the defense and help the pitching?

    In addition to Zimmerman would Washington have an arm that can get people out in the relief innings that have been problematic for the Reds?

    If the answer is yes to those ponderings, then I think that it would be interesting to see.

    I want to see a quote from Dunn saying he wants to play in Washington, otherwise it's just bunk to make an article blurb sound better and more fuel to the "Dunn hates Cincinnati" malarky.

    Anyway, Ryan Zimmerman isn't enough for Dunn IMO.

    The "Dunn wants to play in Washington" blurbs probably originated from JimBo himself.

    But Dunn hasn't denied it, has he?
