Dunn Deal...or Not.


This is Adam Dunn leveling former Brewer catcher Mark Johnson in 2004.
Yeah, I don't remember Johnson either.
.
A fun rumor circulating today had Adam Dunn heading to Milwaukee in exchange for Tony Gwynn Jr. and Matt Wise. Or Matt Wise and a minor league pitcher. Or Kevin Mench and Matt Wise. Or Gwynn, Wise and a minor league pitcher. I even heard it was a "done deal."
.
Doug Melvin was not impressed.
.
It was a "baseless Internet rumor," Melvin said. "There are freaking geeks out there who get ... off on this kind of stuff"
.
That particular trade went south pretty quick today when Tony Gwynn was in the starting lineup and Matt Wise pitched 3 innings today...seriously, how would you sell that trade to your fans if you're Cincinnati?
