    Dusty wants Hunter??? WOW

    per rotoworld.com

    "Tori Hunter has seemingly been connected to half the teams in baseball; you can see all posts involving him here. Today Gleeman added another club to the mix: the Reds. Gleeman's source talks to Dusty Baker, who has suggested the Reds might be interested. That'd create a definite outfielder surplus in Cincy."

    WOW, can you imagine that??
    the REDS being players for a star CF??
    hmmm

    That's really NOT the way I want to improve CF defense.

    replacing Dunn or Jr, and maybe even Hamilton with Hunter would be a sizeable offensive downgrade.

    but other than that signing the 32 year old guy with the .320 OBP sounds like a great plan.

    When I saw the subject line, I thought he wanted to bring Brian Hunter back.

    There are times when I am glad that the Reds are small market and can't afford guys like this.

    Dunn
    Hamilton
    Griffey
    Bruce

    Where would he play? There just doesn't seem as if there is any room for him. I don't trade away two of those guys to make room for Hunter.

    But Dusty also specifically mentioned Dunn in the press conference and later in regards to Brook Jacoby.

    (I am not denying the possibility, but the comments about Dunn are still quite fresh.)

    the Reds are making it seem like this is a tough decision, in the past few years they have picked up options on players during the season. I am suggesting nothing, only stating the fact that Dunn is not under contract for 2008.

    Perhaps the Reds are simply working on the extension and don't want to have to go through the trouble of extending him and then working it out. Restructuring existing contracts is quite the pain given the MLBPA, so maybe they want him to come back at less than 13M this year and move it to later in the contract. Or perhaps they don't want him to have the leverage of him knowing he's got this year's 13M in his back pocket as he negotiates the extension.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
