While not in this thread, I'm on record as suggesting that Dunn is a reasonable bet to earn his option year salary. I'm not giddy enough about the prospect that he'll be well worth
his '08 salary though. I basically think if the Reds pick up Dunn's option, they'll pay him pretty much the going rate. While not a bargain or great value, I don't see the room to complain either.
If the market continues to be a player market, the price of wins could increase enough to make $13M for Dunn be a value. If the market corrects, then it's possible that Dunn could be overpaid at $13M.
