    Unreal. Maybe Dunn is "worth" that 9 million he is seeking. Marketwise anyways, he probably deserves 8-9 if Gibbons is worth 5.25 million a year.

    Jay Gibbons is a 5th outfielder on a good team and a 4th on some bad teams.

    Corner-men with a .315 career on base percentage should make much, much closer to the league minimum.

    Hi, my name's Jay and I make a lot of outs."
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
