Dear Dan O’Brien:
If you are out there reading this little blog written by obsessive fans of the Cincinnati Reds, could you do me a favor? Well, actually, could you do me two favors?
First, go read this article from Sports Illustrated. Then, after you finish the article, please go immediately and sign Adam Dunn to a huge contract for many, many years. He needs to be a Cincinnati Red for at least the next decade.
As General Manager of Redleg Nation’s favorite team, you are in a unique position to ensure the success of this organization for the long term. Signing Adam Dunn to a long-term contract is a great first step in that direction.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.
