    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    Here's the offical release from the Reds:




    REDS TRADE DUNN TO DIAMONDBACKS

    Receive Three Players From Arizona


    CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Reds today acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks RHP Dallas Buck and 2 players to be named later in exchange for OF Adam Dunn and cash.



    Buck, 24, this season went 1-4 with a 3.94 ERA in 9 games and 8 starts with Class A South Bend. Last Monday he was promoted to High Class A Visalia and made one appearance, pitching 5.0 shutout innings Thursday vs San Jose. He will be assigned to Class A Sarasota.



    Buck was selected by Arizona in the third round of the 2006 first-year player draft. He attended Oregon State University, where he was a member of the 2006 NCAA national championship team. He made his professional debut last season by going 4-4 with a 3.41 ERA in 16 starts with Visalia.



    Dunn batted .233 with 32 home runs and 74 RBI in 114 games with the Reds.



    The Reds have not announced who will replace Dunn on the 25-man roster.

    We aren't going to get Parker or Scherzer, so stop saying it. Adam Dunn isn't worth that type of return with his contract status. Not even close.

    Paul wins the battle, now we can look forward to him scapegoating the next player who doesn't play by the rules that Daugherty deems important.

    I'll miss Dunn, but he's gone and what happens next will at least be interesting, if not intriguing.

    I kind of agree. One day, Patterson will be emblematic of how bad things were during this lost decade (+?) of Reds baseball.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Reds have some serious holes. Hopefully, they have some cash to fill them.
    Maybe Bavasi was just hired as a glorified gofer. You know, bring Walt hus lunch, file paperwork, etc. Jocketty's certainly going to need a lot of coffee this off-season, and a "special assistant" could really help him out that way.

    I wonder if "couch" was really an epithet for "Adam Dunn." Guess we'll see if there's another column next year about this time...

    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

    Maybe not. If the Reds threw in some cash, as the release says, that may improve the quality of the return. I can't imagine they'd kick in cash for Buck and some filler. Esp for just 2 months of Dunn.

    Pages are adding up faster than I can read...

    Count me as selfish but if it's any team, I am glad it's Arizona! Reds fan first, D-Backs second.

    The series on September 12, 13 and 14 could be quite interesting. Too bad it is not a home series.

    I'm not going to hold my breath that the PTBNLs are anything of value -- they are rarely better than scratch-off lottery tickets as far as prospects go.

    Surely you do not think that Daugherty's article subliminally influenced the front office
