Nice Timing, Dunn

One day after I make a case for giving him $13.5 million, Dunn craps the bed:

The Cincinnati Reds had two runs taken off the scoreboard and Edwin Encarnacion lost a hit when Adam Dunn was called out for missing third base on an apparent two-run single in the fourth inning Thursday night . . . The misplay was Dunn's second mistake of the game. He overran Adam LaRoche's RBI single to left in the first, allowing LaRoche to advance to third on a two-base error, but LaRoche was stranded there.
Reds win, though, so I suppose it's all good. But for those of you who don't follow the Reds all that closely, you may now be startin' to see why he's such a polarizing figure in Reds Nation.

Don't worry, "Trader Jim" Bowden's gonna take him off your hands any day now.

We Nationals will leave no Reds outfielder circa 2003 unaquired in these current times.

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if we sign Griffey after his contact is up.
