    Dunn is a good player but a superstar he is not, 1 all-star game and leading the league the league in strike outs does not make you a superstar.

    The only reason I would think of trading Votto would be his breakdown last season, I just think that the depression/pressure issues could return at any time.

    Why do you think that?Time heals all wounds,Votto was sick,then his Father died,he'll be fine.My Father died when I was child,as an adult now I don't get deeply depressed at the thought of his death.

    with adam dunn we held onto him for as long as it was worth. its not like once his rookie contract was over we just let him go we did pay him.

    but really, maybe my memory is off but have the reds really had any great prospects to come to their team from 1996-2007? off the top of my head, dunn (above avg player but time to go), kearns(promising future but injuries derailed him, williamson (see kearns), wagner (dont know what happened). im sure you guys can name some more but i think our farm system from the past was very mediocre.

    Reds would have been better served to actually deal him earlier probably.

    Definetely, Micah Owings does not equal Adam Dunn. If teams would have had more than a year with Dunn the Reds could have gotten some really nice value.
