    Dunner on Mike Tirico Show today.....

    it wasn't a long segment but was definitely entertaining, Chris Fowler asked "aren't you supposed to be in an intrasquad game instead of on radio", Dunn replied with "man, when i make a promise to do something, i do it."

    Kirk asked him about his impending contract and being a free agent and he replied saying "we're on the right track" (regarding talks i'd assume), and said he's "been here (cincy) from the start" and "wants to be here to the end."

    Fowler also asked why he thought the reds could contend this year and he immediately talked about Cordero and how shoring up that position and allowing weathers to get to his natural setup position would be the biggest difference.

    He also said some interesting things regarding Dusty and Narron. He inadvertenly called out Narron for not being much of a manager, said he could tell with Dusty that he has times he's playing and has times when he's serious and you know which is which. Kirk then asked if he thought the club was too loose last year and you could tell Dunn didn't want to pile on, but he did say "you know last year when we didn't get a runner over or something like that, it really wasn't a big deal and you can tell with Dusty that stuff like that will be a big deal"

    He sounded really enthused and excited, came off real well in the interview i thought.

    also, pretty funny part, they asked if was playing in the opener against philly tomorrow and he said "nah man, i've got a two bridge rule.....if we have to cross more than two bridges to get there, i don't go"

    That's hilarious! Thanks for posting the interview.

    I know a lot of people on the Sundeck hate Dunn but I would love to see him as a career Red. Dunn isn't a bad guy to have around regardless of the popular belief around here.

    He also said some interesting things regarding Dusty and Narron. He inadvertenly called out Narron for not being much of a manager, said he could tell with Dusty that he has times he's playing and has times when he's serious and you know which is which.

    This is pretty good to know that Dusty will light a fire under there butts to preform better on the field. Narron doesn't seem to be the type of guy to do that.

    He sounded really enthused and excited, came off real well in the interview i thought.
    Also pretty good news that Dunn's excited to play. From the pictures I've seen of him he's reall slimmed down this year. I'm sure he's worked hard this offseason and he'll have a great year on the field this year.

    I completely agree, i was kinda taken back by it. Dusty has some faults, but he's definitely a leader, a leader this team needs, I think it'll translate nicely to the field, but that's just me.

    HE really really stressed how happy he was that he's got the knee fixed, you could tell it was something he was miserable with last year. He was joking with them and laughing on the radio, not like some of the past years interviews i've heard from him

    A leader that makes bad choices still makes bad choices that hurts the team. Narron was an idiot in both cases, but I have a hard time trusting Dusty. I notices in his intersquad game the CF batted 1st, and SS 2nd on both teams.

    I've looked at Baker's lineups over the years, and this IS A PATTERN. Dusty almost always has his CF leading off. And he almost always has a SS hitting 2nd. I want everyone to take a look at this pattern. It's very easy to see. I have a strong feeling Dusty is going to use Gonzo as #2 and Bruce won't make the team.

    Click the team, then click Batting Order at the top. Just take a look, doesn't take long. Also take a look at some of the players he has at the top of the order. It's just plain stupid lineup construction.

    That's good. I don't want to go from all this outfield depth to no depth next year when we lose Griffey. I don't know how we could handle losing Griffey and Dunn the same year.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Or--you can be excited with the idea of Kepp (given the fact that Gonzo's injury could be serious) at shortstop in the 2 hole with Bruce in CF. Plus, if it's Hopper there on opening day, its not the end of the world. Bruce is still just a kid that has yet to do anything, ANYTHING, against major league talent. Should he be great? Yes!! Will he be great? Who knows--and assuming he should be the starter this year is idiotic when you have Hopper who batted 330 last year in the MAJORS.

    I also heard that interview on my way home from work.

    The thing that really jumped out at me was when they asked Dunn what his fastest 40 yard dash time in college was. He said it was a 4.56 and he was @ 252lbs. Pretty good for a qb.
    Wonder what he would run that in now.

    shame on you, reasonable thinking is not tolerated.

    People can say what they want, you can argue with the method but you can't argue with the results, the Reds direly, direly needed a leader and a winner, they have both now, his methods might not mesh with other peoples, but it flat works.

    Personally, i'd like to see Jay Bruce leading off if dusty is so set in his ways.......Bruce, Kepp, Griff, BP, Dunn.........that's scary.

    Corey Hart led off A LOT for Milwaukee last year, and he's about to be a breakthrough player, if he's not already.

    i'd forgotten about that, it was pretty funny too, they were telling him about Rich Eisen running the 40 in his suit at 6.something and Dunn just laid into him, something along the lines of .... "6.5, who is running the 40 in that time, heck that's a fast 60 time in baseball, who the heck is running 6. something in the 40 yard dash", Chris and Kirk were getting a good kick out of that.
