From the Baltimore Sun:
The Orioles were scheduled to talk with about 10 teams yesterday, and according to one source, there was plenty of conversation with the Cincinnati Reds, who are at least listening to offers for slugger Adam Dunn. The Reds, according to the source, are apparently seeking a package that includes left-hander Erik Bedard.
One Orioles official confirmed that the club is extremely interested in Dunn, a left fielder who has hit 40 or more home runs in each of the past two seasons, but “it’s going to be tough to pry him away” from Cincinnati. The Orioles would prefer not trading Bedard, 25, especially when they have to yet to make any additions to their starting rotation this offseason.
I’ve just glanced at Bedard’s numbers, but this has to be a joke.
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.
