From Fay’s blog this morning:
Dunn says nothing is going on as far as talks about a contract extension. The Reds picked up his option on Oct. 31. But, as it is, he’ll become a free agent after the season. Any hope something gets done?
“I don’t know anymore,” he said. “We’ll see what happens. I’m really not worried about it.”
Dunn said he feels great. He had arthroscopic surgery Sept. 26. He had been playing with bulky knee for over a year.
“It’s good,” he said. “I haven’t done a lot of agility stuff. But it’s better than it’s been in a long time. It should make it easier to play.”
I’m not convinced this means anything. We didn’t hear talk about Harang’s extension beforehand, nor Arroyo’s. Hopefully, this will get done.
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.
