Reds Pick Up Dunn/Hatteberg
The Cincinatti Reds made it clear that just because Dusty Baker loves veterans, Adam Dunn is still their number one player, picking up his $13.5M option tonight. They also excersized first-baseman Scott Hatteberg's $1.65M option, and both were quite worth it. Dunn hit 40 home-runs, he deserves $13.5M, simple as that. As for Hatteberg, he continued getting on-base for the club, posting an OBP of .394 last season, raising his career-average to an astonishing .363.
