The Reds better be getting a big return.
I miss Adam Dunn.
We have confirmation that it is a true report....
Unless Scherzer is in the return, I'm not going to be particularly happy.
Dallas Buck is a name I'm hearing...not sure on the other guys.
Wow. Buck is pretty highly rated and an extreme groundball pitcher ....but an A ball prospect? The players to be named later better be AAA and tremendous. I am incredulous. Speechless.
Walt seems to be leaning toward pitchers who will fare decently in GAB. Groundball tendencies. I hope. About time the GM noticed how that might help a pitcher here.
Wonder if the quality of the PTBNL are contingent on Dunn re-upping with Az?
Dallas Buck??? Again. I'm speechless. Dallas freakin' Buck??
I have been in the middle on Dunn for the last five years. I don't think he's nearly as bad as half make him out to be, but on the other hand I don't think he's nearly as good as the other half makes him out to be.
But with that being said, I am COMPLETELY shocked at this.
I fully expected him to be signed to a long term deal.

It's all over the news here in AZ.
Dallas Buck - he of the complete loss of velocity in his senior year at OSU?
Meh....not exactly exciting news.
Watch the Reds to score 7 runs a game and finish with 80 wins. Just you watch.
FYI, Buck was very good in high-A last year, then had Tommy John surgery in the offseason. As of now, he's in Low-A, and his stuff isn't back yet. His K's are the suck. Last year, it looked like he was developing quite nicely, but he's been a different pitcher to start the year (not surprising afetr major surgery).
EDIT: He's actually been bumped up to High A despite the rough start to the year.
