From McCoy's blog, and also coincides with what someone heard P-Doc say:
"One of the two other pitchers coming to the Cincinnati Reds is DEFINITELY Michah Owens.
A source very close to the situation confirmed to me today that Owings is one of the players to be identifield later from Arizona in the Adam Dunn trade."
so maybe the Parker rumors are true. Maybe with Byrnes, O-dog, and Upton down, the D-Backs realized how bad it had gotten with the offense and the fact that they won't be able to hang with the Dodgers w/o Dunn, so they got desperate.
Remember around the deadline it was said that Walt wanted 2-3 top of the line prospects for Dunn, if he didn't get that, then he was ok with the draft picks. Even though the Reds could only deal with the d-backs with the waviers, it still didn't change Walt's stance, there was no reason for it to. Kinda speaks volume when they all say that the deal came as a suprise. The Reds had all the chips in their corner on this one, and Walt could very well have coaxed the D-Backs into submission.
