John Fay writes a story in the Enquirer about the possiblity of the Reds inking their young talent to long term deals.
Asked about the possibility of long term deals, O’Brien said it’s something that they’re considering, but the Reds won’t discuss contracts during the season fearing it would be a distraction.
Adam Dunn said:
“It’s not something I want to worry about now,” he said. “I just want to take care of playing this year. But it’s something I’d like to do eventually.”
Austin Kearns is interested also:
“I’d definitely like to,” he said, “especially with the direction the club is headed in.”
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
