I'm not at all sold that a Hamilton/Cameron(or Hunter, or Rowand)/Griffey OF is any better as a package than Dunn/Hamilton/Griffey. I do know that it carries a lot more risk given those guys age and/or spotty offensive backgrounds.
I'm not a big fan of simply spinning my wheels for the sake of saying I'm trying to go somewhere. It's pretty darn hard to improve your team by subtracting one of it's best players. I can see all kinds of arguments on how we might break even. But unless a great trade of Dunn or Junior happens, simply subtracting them and redistributing their salary on FA signings won't make us better -- particularly if that money is spent on a defense dependent SP who gave up 38 HR in 2006.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
