    Makes me wonder what kind of behind the scenes talks he's had with boss Bob.

    Is this hunch about Brooks Brown and Parra based on anything more than a hunch?

    Pure speculation.

    It sucks that the Reds waited this freaking long to start rebuilding. They should have started this five years ago, now they wait until they finally have some young talent on the roster and begin tearing it down.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Seriously. As long as he piles on young talent over the next couple of years, this team could drop 120 games each season and I wouldn't bat an eye.

    like the Griffey deal, I think that Walt got lucky again--

    a team that actually wanted Dunn, and that had a lot of good young talent, made a claim

    I'm liking Walt so far. he seems to have been empowered to go for big things instead of having to play things two ways at once.

    That's just someone throwing those names out. The other two players haven't been named yet.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    I think my reaction is the worst of all:

    I. Don't. Care.

    Totally apathetic. I have NO faith that the guys we're getting will be any good, and I had NO faith that had we re-upped Dunn that we'd build a winning team around him.

    Dunn is, and has been, our best player for years-- however, the team has been awful over those years. I mean, we're 15 games under .500 WITH him, it really won't bother me much to fall 20 games under WITHOUT him.

    It just doesn't matter.

    I would be thrilled if the PTBNL are two top-10 prospects, but I highly doubt that will be the case.

    Me either. I'd rather take some losing with a program to get somewhere than the aimless wandering in the wilderness the Reds have done for years.

    Or he may simply be the only one who's had enough job security to do this.

    Too bad the Reds probably aren't going to get any of it.
