Re: What trading/not trading Dunn would mean...
IMO it just gives the player more leverage to negotiate with the new team. I'm sure Dunn would take a trade if the money was right. Any team interested in him knows he's going to be expensive. Important details but I still think Dunn is very tradeable(in the hands of a competent GM).
I agree with those who say get a prospect that projects to be a frontline starting pitcher or let him walk and take the draft pick.
