    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.
    Yep.
    I wonder who the Reds fans and media will now blame if/when the Reds continue to lose?

    Adam Dunn would never get a Max Scherzer in any return. No way, no how.

    I wish Dunn nothing but the best. He's better than the podunk operation he was a part of these many years.

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    Buck was very highly touted out of Oregon State -- a possible top 5 pick until his elbow started acting up. Now that he's had TJ surgery, he's on track to become a solid pitching prospect again. Very high GB rates. By himself he's probably better than the 2 picks, in my opinion. If the other two guys are borderline prospects (I'm hoping for one of Enright/Roemer), so much the better, but I figure the Reds weren't in a great spot to demand a lot here. I'm fine with turning the roster over, and young arms are the right target in any prospect deals the team can make.

    Dunner was my favorite Red. Very sad to see him go.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    I'm sorry....I missed it.

    Are the other two guys PTBNL or are we just waiting on the details to come in?

    Re: Dunn traded to DBacks

    I wonder if they would have had the potential to get more in return for Dunn if they faced facts last year and realized that the team wasn't going anywhere anytime soon?

    As edabbs said earlier, PTBNL don't have to be junk/filler.... especially at this point. It likely signifies that they are on the 40 man, and wont neccessarily clear waivers (thus can't technically be traded right now). They could be basically anyone in the minors (Scherzer included).

    Chris Reitsma could have been a PTBNL when we got him from Boston (as he was a post deadline trade for Bichette)... but I think teams let him clear because he was involved in a trade. He was considered a pretty interesting prospect at the time.

    Excellent point, I was really pulling for the Reds to pursue Monetero...

    any FA's in the OF worth throwing money at this winter? I know the pitching market, but hadn't checked out OF so much. Never thought they'd not resign Dunner.
