The tone of your questions would suggest that they are rhetorical in nature. You're in favor of trading Dunn and the fact that I may not, is what really prompted your response. That's cool, but that wasn't the crux of my point.
I will say that if I'm trading Dunn, I'd ask for more than Saltamacchia for him. If Saltamacchia were to be packaged with someone else...Someone else more substantial, I'd give it a chance.
We all know I like Adam Dunn, and I'm unappologetic about it, but even if I didn't, I'd want my team to get maximum value for him. Could I be selling Saltamacchia short? I'm not sure, but conventional wisdom would suggest that Dunn's a proven commodity that should command more of a return than an unproven catching prospect.
Here's a question for you (and then I'm gonna try and avoid getting into another Dunn conversation.....But you've already sucked me in, you scoundrel . Why do you think Dunn makes so much money?
