This is your punishment Slomo for mocking the Cubs. You will forever be doomed to mediocrity by your ownership.
At least we're mediocre by choice.
As long as we don't flat out give away players like the Mets seem to do, I'm fine with it. The Reds desperately need some contact hitters, as all of their power guys are strikeout prone, which really hurts the run production. I don't really want to trade Dunn, but if he won't be affordable anyways, I see no reason to not trade him. It's not like Cincy is going to be a contender within the next season or two. I do like their talent, but they can't seem to put it together consistently. That, and their overall pitching is terrible (bullpen, starters, and even middle relief).
