    I think he signs him, mainly because Castellini wants him here. Plus, when has Jocketty not signed (and traded) one of his marquee players? (Edmonds, Pujols, McGwire, et al)

    Yep. I voted LTC for the reasons above.

    right, I figure that WayneK and Redreadellini have disagreed long enough on this issue, and it came to a head.

    Jocketty will do what the owner wants on this one, and Dunn will stay if that's what Dunn wants.

    I think he will be signed to a multiyear deal but Walt does have to be careful here. I don't think Dunn is a .200 hitter but he shows no signs of becoming an All Star either. If Dunn's agent wants too much for him I say let him walk.

    I think they'll sign him and let Griffey go.

    Re: What will Jocketty do with Adam Dunn?

    I made a half-jokingly suggestion last night in chat - let both Dunn and Griffey walk and sign Mark Teixeira to play 1B and move Votto to left. I wouldn't give him anymore than 15 million a year over four years, so I'm most likely wishful thinking.

    Agreed. I'd offer $60 MM over 4, no more.

    Are the Reds likely to get compensation if he walks?

    I'd rather have Tex than Dunn too, mainly because he can switch-hit. Too bad he'd never sign here though, particularly for that kind of money.

    There's no way I'd let him walk. If you can't sign him before the deadline, you have to trade him to get something.

    Krivsky over-signs everone but doesn't say boo about an extension for Dunn. I think he wanted to scrap the Dunn/Jr./short-porch model.

    I think we'll get two draft picks if we offer him arbitration.

    There's no way I'd let him walk. If you can't sign him before the deadline, you have to trade him to get something.
    Depends on what you can get for him. What if the offer is like Matt Maloney and Danny Ray Herrera?

    Agreed. I'd offer $60 MM over 4, no more.
    Yeah, actually he's not even worth that. That's Vlad Guerrero money and even more than Pujols is making. Anyone who pipes up that Richie Sexson is making $15.5mill will be forced to defend that to the face of a Mariner fan

    Too late now, but it would have been much cheaper to have kept Cantu and Hamilton. The Reds might not have a losing record right now if these bats were in the lineup with Votto, Encarnacion, and Phillips: 2008, to date:

    Jorge Cantu: .325 .381 .532 .913
    Josh Hamilton: .310 .373 .552 .924

    No need for Dunn or Griffey. I wonder what kind of pitching Adam and Junior could have brought in a trade/trades?
