I think for once the player's themselves sum things up better than I can:

"Are we facing Sandy Koufax tonight?" asked one. "Or is it Randy Johnson?"

"Are we trying to win?" asked another.

"Are Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn hurt?" asked a third.

[...]

"I came to the park early, all happy and smiling after a day off, ready to take some extra hitting," Griffey said. "Dunn said, 'Why are you so happy? You're not in the lineup and neither am I.' "

Griffey visited Miley's office to lobby for his spot, but Miley wouldn't budge. Dunn didn't try.

"I had a day off Thursday and don't need (another one), but I can't say anything because I suck," he said.

We've lost Adam Dunn.  Completely and utterly, one of the 10 best players in the game today, and there's no chance he's going to want to be a Red any longer than he has to be.  What a waste.
