I agree, the Reds would be better off with Hunter than Dunn. Hey, I love the measuring tape homers too but even if we do upgrade the pitching we need to be much better on defense. I see Dunn as a glaring hole in our defense and being such a big man he would be better off in the AL where he could DH. That way he wouldn't be running around out there wearing those knees out (he's already having trouble). I do think it would be better to pick up his option then trade him for whatever we can get.
I would salivate over a 2009 outfield of Hamilton, Hunter, and Bruce.
