Am I in the minority on this? I wouldn't do that deal straight up... If they wanted Dunn, 40-100-100-100
They would have to give me Billingsly, Kershaw, and Kemp
You all can call me nuts, crazy, or whatever... But I do not give a darn...
Dunn for Kemp straight up, rent a Dunn or not, that is ridiculous...
From this and your post in the Encarnacion thread, you seem to have a warped sense of reality when it comes to trades and signings. Those 3 kids you mention are all 23 or younger and highly regarded. You would expect them in return for Adam Dunn for 1/2 the year? Why not ask for Sandy Koufax to boot?
If the Reds aren't going to sign Dunn long term, which I think is a mistake, I would take Kemp and his years of arbitration ahead of him straight up for 1/2 a year of Dunn in a heartbeat.
