I think the other reason the Reds would do it is because it makes cents. They see the season slipping away and are looking to start to dump $$$, IMO.
I would love to see Dunn done in the Natti, especially to play in Houston.

Would that make Berkman a fixture at 1b with Taveras and Dunn and Lane in the OF or would Dunn go to 1b?

I think Berkman would stay at first because of his knee.

Can't argue there. With only 1/6 the gravity of Earth, pretty much any flyball is going to be a home run. Also, with no atmosphere, pitchers will be reduced to a fastball/change combo, since all other pitches rely on air resistance. I'd estimate about 200 HRs a year from Dunn if he was traded to the Moon.

Haha... ;-D

I think you guys are crazy for thinking that Dunn is worth not 1, not 2 but 3 pitching prospects. Sure the guy can mash but there is no way in hell he worth that much. No way in hell.

Yeah he only hit 46HR last year at age 24 as a lefty and he's showing similar power this year. I don't think Dunn is all that but don't go crazy on 3 prospects because that's all they are is prospects. It's not like they're mortgaging their future to do it ala Yankee business procedure since Dunn is only 25 and if they plan on showing him the money for a long term deal then he becomes part of their future. So far Astacio hasn't proven he can pitch at the major league level and has been a big disappointment for Houston "so far" and from what I can tell (I haven't checked the other two to be sure) the other guys haven't proven jack yet.

from rotoworld....

Astros owner Drayton McLane and GM Tim Purpura both denied reports that the club was working on a trade sending pitchers Ezequiel Astacio, Fernando Nieve and Taylor Buchholz to the Reds for Adam Dunn.
The Astros would probably be willing to bring Dunn home, but considering how much they'll have to pay him in the future, they're unlikely to give up three of their four best pitching prospects for him. Jul. 5 - 1:30 pm et

2 year hr index at GAB
LHB 113 hr index

3 year index at MM
LHB 84 hr index

MM is terible on LHB. Dunn has 21 hrs this year, 16 at GAB. A trade imo lowers Dunns value in most scenerios.
