    Dunn Extension??

    Fay:

    Dunn: Nothing going on on extension

    Adam Dunn is in camp. Could it be his last as a Red?

    Dunn says nothing is going on as far as talks about a contract extension. The Reds picked up his option on Oct. 31. But, as it is, he'll become a free agent after the season. Any hope something gets done?

    "I don't know anymore," he said. "We'll see what happens. I'm really not worried about it."

    Dunn said he feels great. He had arthroscopic surgery Sept. 26. He had been playing with bulky knee for over a year.

    "It's good," he said. "I haven't done a lot of agility stuff. But it's better than it's been in a long time. It should make it easier to play."

    Dunn, by the way, is a NASCAR convert after going to the Daytona 500.

    "It was awesome," he said. "I wasn't a fan of NASCAR. Being their live and seeing how fast those guys go . . . it's amazing. I don't know how to describe it. TV will never be able to capture the speed, the noise.

    "I love it."

    Sounds like a guy who is real excited doesn't it? Thankfully he's just as likely to slough off talk of leaving as it he to talk of staying.

    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

    I think he will be gone at the AS break...IF the Reds are not in contention.

    I blame Dunn. It probably sounded more like 'their' instead of 'there'. I'd criticize him more, but that wouldn't be a fair fight since everyone knows he can't defend.

    How about the "bulky" knee?

    Note to FAY: Balky Knee. Use slang properly!! Know what I'm sayin'?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Yeah noticed that.

    Sounds like our boy has given up on any extention. That's sad.

    I've come to notice that's par for the course on his blog entries. In just about every one there's either a blatant grammatical or spelling error, but it's apparent he doesn't really care. Personally, while that's a pet peeve of mine, I don't blame him. It is only a blog after all. His articles for the Enquirer almost never have the same errors.

    This is a blog entry. No editors. I miss that one quite a bit while typing on here. I'm not a big Fay fan, but dissing him for typos on a blog is a bit nitpicky.

    It's a professional blog on his employer's site. He should be expected to edit his own copy. Mistakes do happen, but they're never excusable.

    FWIW, I'm in the exact same boat with the blog I write and maintain for my employer. We have advertising associated with it and the expectation is that it be professionally written and edited. If it's not, then that's 100% on me.

    Your probably right, but if Fay wasn't such a hack it wouldn't be much of an issue around here.
