    My random Dunn deal

    So there are continued rumors about Dunn being on the block. Here's my completely not thought through deal of the moment:

    Dunn and (something)

    for

    Giles, Linebrink, and Bush/Headley

    Giles basically gave up trying to hit for any power in SD and I think would return to his .300/.400/.500 self in Cincy. He's far superior defensively to Dunn, even at his age. He's been extremely durable. His contract is quite reasonable (9MM per through '09 if we exercise his option) and his limited no-trade does not include Cincy (I believe). Linebrink would be an excellent closer right away. Including the random something for Bush or Headley is just an attempt to get some future value. With Cameron in CF, the Pads can afford to have a sub-par LF defensively.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
