...they should go after (see below for three important disclaimers):

For my part, IF they were to entertain such a move, I would be hoping a thumping right-handed stick and solid young starting pitching prospect would be in the return. If they could talk KC into it, Alex Gordon/Zack Grienke, for instance (or Luke Hochevar if you prefer). Or if they could talk LAA into it, Brandon Wood and one of their pitching prospects. Something along those lines. I would want a couple of players with massive upside who are major league ready now. I think, if WK deals Dunn (or entertains dealing Dunn), that should be the bottom line for any such discussions.
What I am curious about is what some of the more level-headed types on this part of the board think the proper return would be for someone like Dunn. It's a question worth musing over, especially in light of how most of this board (including me) feels about the return that AK and Felipe brought a year ago.
* Disclaimer 1: This is NOT a bash Adam Dunn thread. I think he is spectacularly undervalued amongst Reds fans. Without question.
** Disclaimer 2: I am NOT advocating they deal him, just wondering what a realistic return for him might be. This is prompted in part by that insane Dunn for Tori Hunter thread idea on Reds Live. My soul still weeps over that suggestion.
