I agree, except while we may be trading 4 months of Dunn (at that's all someone will get), our option is to keep Dunn for 1 year, 4 months. Still, Salty is just the return we need going forward.
Griffey may actually have more appeal than Dunn right now in terms of trade value, as he's signed for next year (I never thought that would be an advantage), and is producing better offensively than Dunn. The big advantage of a team getting Dunn is having him get a looksee of the team and increasing your chances of signing him long term.
