The most insane rumor is currently running around MLB sites. It has the Reds dealing Adam Dunn (who now is tied for the NL lead in HRs), for Oakland closer Huston Street. This deal makes absolutely no sense. Dunn is due to walk at the end of this year. The Reds SHOULD resign him, but apparently Cincy fans are too stupid and want to run him out of town. Even so, Dunn will yield two top picks if signed by another club. He is insanely valuable both as a player and as a token.
Huston Street is an arbitration eligible closer. He will never be more overvalued than he is right now. Surely...SURELY this can't possibly true.
Walt Jockety should be shot if he makes this deal.
