that tells me that they have very little interest in dealing him.
I thought the Reds went after Haren. July 27. San Francisco Chronicle: "Although Oakland has been mentioned as a potential destination for Dunn, the Reds are seeking a package that includes at least a No. 3 major-league starter for the slugger -- and the A's are not going to part with Dan Haren. According to a person familiar with Cincinnati's thinking, the Reds would be unlikely to part with Dunn or even outfielder Austin Kearns for Joe Blanton, which means the Reds wouldn't do it for Juan Cruz or Joe Kennedy in a package, either."
