The Braves might ask for Dunn, and if I'm Wayne I laugh and ask them to call back when theyre serious.
Votto I could understand. Griffey is realistic. Dunn is outrageous.
However I don't think they'd ask for Votto because they like the left-handed hitting Scott Thorman at 1B. So I'd offer Griffey, and if they refuse to take on his salary in full, I'd pick up 1/3 of it to get the deal done.
If they don't want Griff, I'd offer Stubbs, Conine and Lohse. Add Ryan Freel if neccessary to be their starting LF. Lohse provides them with a #4 starter down the stretch (especially with Smoltz being injured), Conine with a RH-hitting 1B for the stretch, and Stubbs as a possible long term replacement for Andruw Jones, whose departure is imminent.
