Re: Tori Hunter Mentioned With The Reds
Again, 15 million for an aging outfielder whose defensive skills are starting to show decline. Or, a LTC for the 28 year old outfielder who is heading into his prime years. The same 28 year old who is head and shoulders better offensively than the aging, declining outfielder ever has been. Sure, said 28 year old OF isn't very good defensively, but LF defense isn't that important.
Not only do you get much a better offensive production, but the Hamilton/Freel/Hopper trio can give just about the same defense in CF at a third of the cost.
15M for Dunn > 15M for Hunter.
