The market is what it is and Dunn would be a bargain at that price. But we'd need to do it ASAP before Teix gets on the market with Boras asking 20-30M for him (???)
Dear Lord, are we ever going to learn?
We'd regret that contract almost as soon as it was signed. It's not about whether the deal is reasonable in the market. It's about what the contract means to the rest of the Cincinnati Reds. You tie up $17 million a year on one guy, and you spend the length of the contract looking for bargains everywhere else.
If the Reds are going to sign anyone to a deal like that, it needs to be a starting pitcher. Definitely not a good-but-not-great corner outfielder who seems like the classic example of a guy who will not age especially well.
