    I don't think that fans on here disliked Dunn but rather wanted to see more run production out of him for what he cost the Reds. 50 HRs and only 100 RBIs is not good run production imo. Had he been able to drive in another 30 or so runs and not strike out near as often he would have been great in my eyes. Defensively he was a liability in the outfield though.

    You're discounting the # of runs he scored annually. In the 4 full seasons he played in Cincinnati he averaged 103 runs scored per season.

    If Yonder ever averages 42/100/103 with an OPS in the .900+ I'll take the same # of Ks and his defense.

    I won't be counting on that.

    Does anyone think that since Votto is only under contract for two or three years, that Votto will be the one traded if he seems unlikely to ink a long term deal. IF they cant get something squared away before the last year of his current deal he may be trade bait himself. That's why I would think Alonso will be kept around for a while.
