Re: Time to unload Griffey and Dunn
Here are the issues this team has:
3 catchers...one making 5 mil next year that has been awful this year.
An over-achieving veteran 1B with poor footwork around the bag.
Our best infielder playing 2B
An over-achieving veteran at SS with minus range
A rookie 3B that is still learning the position day to day...turning into a star though.
A poor LF'er, but when he is on, this team flourishes, when he is off they sink. Live by the Dunn, die by the Dunn.
An old CF'er with no range that refuses to move (so we think) positions. Also he is the #3 hitter on the team, despite his .315 obp (9th on the team) and a .479 slg % (5th on the team). Also a massive contract with 10-5 rights.
RF is actually solid if Freel is there.
We have two good starting pitchers, the rest are up in the air. One guy is making around 8-9 mil next year to post a 5.00 era. There are also many other issues.
Either way, there are a lot of things to fix before dumping Dunn. Griffey on the other hand is fine with me if you can. Dunn is a guy to build around, even though he slips every once in a while. He has won many games for this team this year.
