Re: A slightly different approach to Dunn
Well here is another question that I don't know has been discussed too much yet and that is whether the Reds should exercise the 2008 option on Dunn.
When Dunn signed his contract this spring he got salaries of $7.5 million for this season and $10.5 million for 2007. The club has an option for a $13 million salary in 2008, which it can buy out for $500,000. I am on the fence and obviously would depend on the trade options, Bruce's and Stubbs' development etc. In terms of his contract, the numbers are similar to Sexson who has always struck me as being a guide for Dunn's value though always a couple of years older. If Dunn performs at a similar level in early '07 to his performance this year, should the Reds pick up his option for '08?
