Last year was my first year at Redsfest and it was a blast. My only gripe was the absence of Adam Dunn. I'm not sure if I quite understand what his thinking is. I think making an appearance like this would be a huge step towards winning over the fans. Maybe he doesn't care what we think, but I have a hard time believing that. Adam seems like a guy that would be fun to go and have a beer with, his teamates like him, he has a good sense of humor, why not reach out and become a poster child for Reds baseball. I can understand if he has obligations on that weekend every year that he cannot cancel, but if not it's just one weekend(actually one day is all he would have to show up for) that he would have to give up, and who knows he might enjoy it.
