I hate to say this, but I agree. Unless the players to be named later are whoppers, this has the signs of a pure and simple salary dump.
On the other hand, Dunn will be pulling in a lot next year - a lot. A lot more than Griffey had - and if the bidding gets passionate enough, he could even near Giambi-type numbers. I am not sure that a ball club like the Reds would have been able to afford him and put up winning numbers.
And that, in more ways than one, is a tragedy.
