Re: Jayson Starks Top 10 to watch as the trade deadline approaches
This is what I want to hear. Someone will bite on Randa next week. As for Dunn, if they trade him, they are simply nuts.
4th in NL in HR
3rd in NL in BB
5th in NL in OPS
4th in NL in Runs
7th in NL in Slugging
I used to be one of the guys that said I would trade Dunn for a bunch of help in other areas, but trading him would be like St. Louis trading Albert Pujols. He should have a high price tag. I don't believe that anyone is not tradeable, but Dunn is about as close as it gets. Nieve and Buchholz wouldn't even get me started.
As for Pena, I haven't heard much about him being traded. I don't even know what the market for him would be. I think he is a good hitter and will only get better, but I would in no way put him in Adam Dunn territory. Griffey is tradable and if the Yankees don't get what they want before the end of next week, I think they will take a shot at him.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
