    All's quiet on the Dunn

    Jon Heyman says...

    Things have appeared oddly quiet for the biggest slugger on the free-agent market. That would be Adam Dunn, who may find his value isn't quite what he had hoped...

    I wonder what his price will be in January...7-8M/Yr?

    Anyone want to take your best guess at when and at what price Dunn will sign.
    Tiebreaker...name the team.

    December 20th, Nationals $12M average/year for 5 years

    At the same time, everything is slow. No one is signing anywhere. They're saying nothing is going to pick up till the winter meetings. Teams are waiting to feel eachother out so they don't have to spend as much. I'm hearing that nothing is expected to go down with free agents until the winter meetings. The economic stuff has everyone out of whack. Its not just Dunn even though it appears that way. He's going to get a big contract somewhere IMO.

    I predict that whatever high payroll team doesn't get their hands on Mark Texiera will turn to Dunn in desperation. Some here may hate him for is poor fielding and high strikeouts, but 40 homers is 40 homers, and his OPB and OPS were both good for 9th in the league.

    Dunn is an elite player and will sign for 20+ million a year 5+ years.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I think a few teams will be in the mix after Tex, Manny, and a few big starters are signed. Giants 4yr 56 mil.

    Gotta be a AL team he is a liability to any NL team. The man was made to be a DH 4yrs 15 mill is probably a good guess. Nice consolation prize to those who lose out on getting the power of Manny. Could see him in Yankees pinstripes or in the AL east somewhere.

    No chance Dunn gets that. He is a very good player, but he is no Mark Texiera or Albert Pujols.
    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.

    I still appreciate what Dunn was for us, and miss him dearly being a Red. Bruce has the chance to unseat Adam but Dunn might always be my favorite Redleg.

    I think those that suggest AL are probably right...so I'll tweak mine to say

    Angels / $12.5M/year for 4 years.
