Reds Exercise Option For Adam Dunn
Posted by Matt on November 1, 2007
The Cincinnati Reds have exercised the one-year option on uber-slugger Adam Dunn’s contract that will pay him $13.0 million for the 2008 season, making him the highest paid player on the Reds’ roster and ensuring another season of fans being in awe of his towering home runs while defiling him for his ballooning number of strikeouts.
I have always been a BIG Adam Dunn supporter – although I nearly jumped off of the wagon during the worst of times last season – and having watched Dunn play for the Single-A Dragons of my hometown Dayton when he first came on the scene for the Reds, it is nice to watch the continuance of his career.
That being said, Reds’ General Manager Wayne “Burnt Crispy” Krivsky had this to say about Adam Dunn’s self-proclaimed improvement – and reduction of strikeouts – at the plate in the second half of the season:

Oh really, Wayner? I can hit 80 home runs in a season will you pay me millions of dollars? I mean for me to say it, it must be true.
