Because you dont know doesn't mean that others dont.
Adam Dunn for the next 4 months on a team going absolutely nowhere < Votto, Stubbs, Cueto and Wood without question.
Votto will offer less production than Dunn. Do you really think Votto will put up better numbers than Dunn? I agree Votto should be up now, but he's not.
The Reds should absolutely pay Adam Dunn a contract in the range of $100 Million over 7 years, which equates to a little over 14 Million a year.
Votto should have some impact over the next 3 years, but the same can't be said about Stubbs, Cueto and Wood.
