John Fay writes a story in the Enquirer about the possiblity of the Reds inking their young talent to long term deals.

Asked about the possibility of long term deals, O’Brien said it’s something that they’re considering, but the Reds won’t discuss contracts during the season fearing it would be a distraction.

Adam Dunn said:

“It’s not something I want to worry about now,” he said. “I just want to take care of playing this year. But it’s something I’d like to do eventually.”

Austin Kearns is interested also:

“I’d definitely like to,” he said, “especially with the direction the club is headed in.”
