Speaking of trades

Ken Rosenthal had this to say about Adam Dunn's contract:
( http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/6846246 )

"Reds left fielder Adam Dunn lacks a no-trade clause, but his contract includes a provision that grants him his own form of protection, effectively allowing him to determine his own fate.
If Dunn is traded, his $13 million club option for '08 will be voided, making him a free agent at the end of the season, according to a source with knowledge of his contract.

Thus, any team that acquired him likely would request a negotiating window to sign him long-term, rather than simply rent him for two or three months.

If the Reds keep Dunn and exercise his option after the season, he will gain full no-trade protection until next June 15. After that date, he could be traded to 10 clubs, but the list would be of his own choosing."

I didn't realize there was anything spelled out for trading him if the Reds exercise his option.

Now that Griffey is playing well again, the Reds are going to be conflicted about trading him. On the one hand, it may be the last, best chance to deal him. But Griffey may be one of the few reasons to come out and see the Reds this season if he stays healthy and climbs up the all-time homerun list.
