    This isn't rebuilding.

    This is using all your money to buy a wrecking ball to clear a job site and then looking confused when your workers ask you where the materials are for the new house.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    I'm becoming more optimistic that the PTBNL's are of higher quality since the Reds included cash with Dunn in the deal...

    No offense to you, I think you're a funny guy most of the time.....But I don't give a flying flapjack about justifying a return right now.

    There is no way you can justify that return, anyway.

    It's easy. Just ask the Diamondbacks how much a division title is worth to them. If it's just Dallas Buck and some leftover puke from last night's party, you walk away.

    I do agree, though, that it doesn't look like Walt is going to do this half-way rebuild thing the franchise has been stuck in for the past two decades.

    I agree but hopefully with Walt at the helm he'll recognize the time to trade. For now he's clearing the decks and instead of just slapping a coat of paint on the same tired structure he's rebuilding the framework. That may hurt before it helps.

    I like that approach too. Although that approach applied to Dunn would have made him an ex-Red about 20 months ago, and I can only imagine how that would have gone over, considering the gnashing of teeth over losing a few (definitely) meaningless weeks' production before (probably) losing him to free agency.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    It would be foolhardy to declair this the worst trade ever without even knowing the return.

    However, the chances of this one turning out good are very slim (as it appears right now).
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Especially since we just traded our only hammer for some bent nails.

    Parra is raw but has talent. He's been rushed a bit but has hit decent at lower levels. Brooks Brown has good stuff but I still want more than that.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    So far Walt is the only GM who's realized that this team, in it's current construct, was going NOWHERE.

    He's the only one who's been willing to tear it down....now hopefully he can be the one to build it the right way. The GMs before him simply reshuffled deck chairs for 7 years.

    The Reds have been rebuilding for so long that it's become old hat.

    We don't even know the entire return just yet.
