Re: ORG Thread says Kemp (LA Dodgers) for Dunn
I don't think the Dodgers would trade Kemp straight-up for Dunn.
He would be a great cleanup hitter, unfortunately we'd still have DPBP batting 3rd. AND, the likelihood of DUHsty batting a CF-er in the 4 hole might take a minor miracle...
I would do the trade in a heartbeat. Seems like we aren't going to sign Dunn to an LTC - or we'd have done it months ago - so might as well get SOMETHING for him. Kemp would be a freakin steal of massive proportions.
We'd more than likely have to throw in something else of value - and get back some other fodder in from LA to make it look reasonable.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
