From the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay

Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi took some shots at Adam Dunn while answering a call on his radio show Wednesday night. Here’s what Ricciardi said:

“Do you know the guy doesn’t really like baseball that much?” Ricciardi  said to the caller. “Do you know the guy doesn’t have a passion to play the game that much? How much do you know about the player?”

“There’s a reason why you’re attracted to some players and there’s a reason why you’re not attracted to some players. I don’t think you’d be very happy if we brought Adam Dunn here”

“We’ve done our homework on guys like Adam Dunn and there’s a reason why we don’t want Adam Dunn. I don’t want to get into specifics.”

Ricciardi has since apologized to both the media (“I don’t even know Adam Dunn”) and Reds GM Walt Jocketty. He also sent in an application for Jeff Brantley’s job.
