    I don't want a pickup truck in the first place. I really don't want one with a dent in the fender or a broken window.

    While I understand needing advertising and promotion dollars and adding some character and quirks for the fans, this seems like a bit much. I will take a wait and see approach to this.

    Nice to see the Reds adding a few amenities each offseason to spice up the park a bit. It's a good feeling knowing the team is continually moving away from the cheapness known as Carl Lindner.

    I do have a feeling that truck may suffer a few dents and maybe some broken glass during BP sessions.

    I think it's slightly lame that it has to be a Reds hitter to hit the truck because it sounds like Dunn is probably the only hitter that could realistically hit the truck (maybe Griffey and possibly Bruce in the future).

    The big question is, is the trust on display the one the winner gets? Who wants a truck that's been pummled by a baseball? I'm sure the winner gets a new truck, but the article didn't say.

    I'll be more than happy to take the truck off someone's hands if it's dented.....
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If you're going to a ball game expecting fine dining, you're in the wrong place.

    I see a new target for Dunn during BP.
