    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    Sad to see Dunn go. I can't wait to see the Reds start "winning" with a Padres-like offense.

    Good luck, Dunn. I hope he blasts 15 home runs the rest of the season and drops a couple 1.000 OPS seasons on MLB the next few years. The Reds will deserve it.

    So who the heck is going to play the OF for the rest of 2008?

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    Not exactly the kind of write up I'd hoped to hear regarding the cornerstone of a deal for Dunn.

    News on the other two guys? How about now? Now? How about now?

    I'm afraid Walt Joketty has made a huge mistake.

    I'm very disappointed.

    Makes me sick to my stomach. A few goosebumps too (and not in a good way).

    I'm not ready to proclaim that yet. Walt has a winter ahead of him to rebuild thngs, a lot of FAs that he can dump, another slot open by cutting Ross. Jocketty can say what he wants publicly this is going to be a rebuild job. And he might just get it done quicker than anyone thinks.

    Guys, we weren't gonna get much of a return for a month and a half for Dunn, but why didn't Walt just take the picks if he is gonna get 2 PTBNL?

    Hey! I see Coutlangus on their roster. Maybe he makes a Reds return.

    People whine, and whine, and whine that the Reds don't rebuild, they go into every year trying to unrealistically win, etc. etc. etc. Now they're TRYING to rebuild, and taking the necessary steps to do that, and people complain again. Walt's in a lose-lose situation.

    Based on some of the posts I've read, I now assume the Reds will go 43-0 the rest of the way. Post-season, here we come!

    Just kills me that we finally traded Dunn and we don't even know exactly what we're getting back. I also wonder if they were close to a deal before the trading "deadline" (too bad all deadlines aren't this loose) or if this just popped up this week. I have to think they had discussions about this before today/yesterday.

    And let me repeat: Scherzer better be in this deal!
    I don't know if that's likely.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    At least one of these guys have to be in the deal for it to be considered a decent return: Max Scherzer, Micah Owings, Jarrod Parker, or Miguel Montero.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
