He has shown inconsistencies in the past but away from houston hopefully he would settle back down and dominate. Houston loves dunn and needs his offense. This would allow us to forget about zito, padilla or anyone else. With the money we already have to spend plus what we save by dealing dunn we could easily add the offense to replace him.
They could very well lose Clemens and Pettitte this offseason. They are not trading Hirsh.
