I'd certainly agree that Junior is an upgrade over both Crisp and Drew but I still don't see the Red Sox as a great fit for Junior. I guess I could see the Sox playing Junior in right and sliding Drew into CF but I still don't think that is a likely scenario. I do think the White Sox would be a good fit for Junior but I'm not sure they'd be willing to give up Danks for him. I don't know a whole lot about the prospects in the White Sox organization but if they're close around the deadline I could see them making a serious run at Griffey.
I love the proposed Dunn for Broxton and Kemp deal but I'm not sure the Dodgers would be willing to give up Broxton. One of the Dodgers biggest strengths is the back end of their bullpen, I'm sure they'd love to add a power bat like Dunn but probably not at the expense of their bullpen. With that being said if I could get both Broxton and Kemp for Dunn, I make the deal in a heartbeat. I'm less keen on a Broxton and Ethier package but I'd still consider it.
I think the Angels are a good fit for Dunn but with Alex Gonzalez and Brandon Phillips here for the long run I'm not sure Aybar is a great fit. Given the Angels strong starting pitching I'd love to see the Reds target Nick Adenhart and another prospect.
