Reds Like Gotham's Kids
The Reds are said to looking to move Adam Dunn, and if they are, it appears that they have interest in both the Mets and Yankees' young prospects.
Their logic? Both the Mets and Yankees have expressed an interest in the young slugger in the past, and while they haven't in awhile, one industry source stated Wednesday that "(the Mets and Yankees) are going to find that teams are going to be very difficult to deal with this offseason.
