    Dunn was traded?
    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.

    I agree with everyone on the other thread.

    While I wouldn't put it past Jim Bowden to maybe threaten to claim a player to try to squeeze a "favor" out of one of the teams involved, the next time he tried to make a post-deadline deal, those teams could do the same thing right back to him. That could very well be how it works. But, the trade will be completed as intended eventually, one way or another. Josh Byrnes isn't Jim Bowden.

    Wow... Dunner generated a lot of posts.. I thought the Reds were rumored to get Bedard again..

    It will be neat to see how Dunn actually does in a batting order slot more suitable for him and have guys around him like Jackson, Drew, Reynolds, and Young.

    Here's a thread from the D-Backs' point of view. I've only read the first few pages so far.

    Re: Dunn traded to D-Backs Part II

    Hypothetical question to ask yourselves:

    Many judged "The Trade" by how Lopez and Kearns performed after they were dealt, not how they performed before the deal. Kearns was obviously a much better performer (for whatever reason) in Cincy than what he has shown in Washington. Same with Lopez.

    If Dunn were to bomb out or at least take a sizeable dip in production in the next 2-3 years...would that change your feelings at all?

    Just curious.

    Some of them seem to think they gave up *too much*.

    I'll be honest...that's an angle I hadn't considered.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Big difference between the trades.

    kearns and Lopez were under our control for some years.

    Dunn we had for 6 more weeks.

    How Dunn does in the future has little to do with this trade, as he wouldn't have done it for us.

    It's easier to attack the Reds decision to not sign Dunn (if that is in fact the truth) than it is to attack the trade.

    I take my prediction back.. I think the Reds will recieve Micah Owings and Josh Whitesell.

    Whitesell wasn't in the game yesterday for Tucson.. which yes could mean a day off.. but the Sidewinders were off on Thursday and they used Catchers Wilkin Castillo at 3rd and Robby Hammock at 1st yesterday.. my quess if they were included in the trade they wouldn't of played last night.

    That would be a pretty solid return. I'll keep my fingers crossed for something like that, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
