Now this I feel is an over exaggeration. Soriano didn't get $20 mil a year. And though I think Dunn is more valuable than Soriano, They have some similarities (power, weak defenders)
Dunn's next contract will likely be in the same range as Soriano's. The length and overall total might be different, but the rate will be similar.
And what rumblings? It has never been reported that he wants out of Cincinnati.
