    I thought Yorman was Venezuelan?

    Well, if he does that, then his whole comment about the "untouchables" was strikingly honest.

    I know I just heard the sound of the Reds hitting bottom. I just wonder how fast the rebound will be.
    I don't think the purge is done, or even close to over. Lots of current Reds are going to be out of jobs or elsewhere by next ST. Arroyo over the winter - I'd be surprised if he is back. Ditto Bailey. I'll bet the current losing skein finally convinced Bob to give Walt the go ahead to wreck this thing and build from the ground up.

    Unless that new home is as the staring shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds, I disagree.

    Oops. Yeah he is. It's gotta be something with Yorman though as that's the only reason I could think he would be heading down that way.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    So... who do you think are the players who end up staying?

    Harang, Volquez, Cueto, Bruce, Votto, Encarnacion... ?

    That's unacceptable to me, as it should for other fans who've invested so much emotion in a player who grew up as a Red, made his name here, hit 270 freaking home runs here, and played his guts out here (wether the BadFundamentals crowd wants to believe that or not).

    Yeah, I'm pissed, and it's not exactly something that needs to be logically quantified right now.

    PTBNL my arse.
    Brother. YOU don't know who the return is but you can bet the Reds do. I do agree though that Dunn had a strong emotional attachment to a lot of fans and this is going to be a "bad" trade in that respect no matter who comes back.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    Best of luck to Adam Dunn. The Diamondbacks are a terrific organization, and I hope that the good environment they seem to have allows him to reach even beyond every bit of potential he has. And hopefully he will pick up a ring or two while he's at it.

    Dunn was by far the brightest spot in this club for me through a number of very unbright years. He was a player that I think we were all fortunate enough to watch develop into something beyond even what most of us expected (ironic given the factors that hindsight has thrown in, but that is true). I had not followed the Reds for a number of years and it was largely this goofy sunshine kid who brought me back. My heart has not been so broken over a trade since Eric Davis; this may in fact surpass Davis given the fact that I feel Dunn never ever got his due here. To be ricidulously simplistic, I just can't believe I've seen him in a Reds uniform for the last time. That thought hits hard.

    As to the return, I can't say it better than many of you have. I will be taking a serious break from this organization.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Some more deets from MLBTR:

    2:14pm: Jack Magruder says Dunn's remaining $4MM or so will be split between the two teams. He confirms the deal is for Buck plus two prospects to be named later. The price seems reasonable, and the D'Backs can snag a couple of draft picks when Dunn leaves.

    The way he said it sounded like it may be the way the broadcasters and Reds management talk among themselves.

    If this is true, this won't be the last player leaving.

    On the current roster? Well, Hanigan, Keppinger, Cordero, and Burton...

    if Parker(who is not on the 40 man) is not in the deal the answer is likely no.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    So is there anyone left on the Reds from the Bowden era now?

    So much for the big thumpers in HR-crazy GABP.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Stay tuned
    I have absolutely zero confidence that Bob knows how to spend his money effectively in baseball. All the evidence I need is in the free agents they've signed since he took over.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
