Linebrink for Dunn?
In a story mostly about the Pirates in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, there's an interesting tidbit that has nothing to do with the Bucs:
The San Diego Padres could be ready to put Scott Linebrink, a top-notch setup guy with closer potential, on the block to attract a power hitter. Reportedly, Cincinnati slugger Adam Dunn is in their sights.
Now, I like Scott Linebrink, though, admittedly that has more to do with his performance on Oh Say Can You Sing? than anything I know about his pitching.
But more than that, I love the idea of the Reds trading all of their outfield power for relief pitchers. Next week, Griffey for Ray King.
