    Dunn's first choice? The Windy City

    But their first choice is Milton bradley. From MLB Trade Rumors:

    According to David Kaplan of WGN Radio and Comcast SportsNet, Adam Dunn's first choice is to play for the Cubs. He's not looking for a huge deal, but a fair one. The concern, of course, would be having Dunn play right field on a regular basis.

    A source familiar with the team's thinking told MLBTR the Cubs have "exchanged pleasantries" with Dunn's agents, nothing more. It's been suggested that Milton Bradley is the Cubs' first choice.

    Sweet, the Cubs can sign Adam Dunn so we can sign Milton Bradley.

    Dunn in right, Soriano in left and a tired guy in CF.

    Dunn in right field would be brutal.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    wrigley is just a small OF, other than at the lines. That had Moises play RF for a few seasons after he could no longer run. Wrigley is the perfect offensive park for Dunn. He would hits popups that would go out between the alleys

    Re: Dunn's first choice? The Windy City

    If I were choosing a place to play and didn't have any loyalty to the Reds, I have to say the possibility of playing ball at Wrigley for half my games would be a great draw. Can't say I blame Dunn one bit.

    Let's assume Dunn averages 600 PA a year.

    Let's assume 1/2 of those 600 PA will happen at Wrigley. Which means he'll hit probably 26 HR at home, which means to continue his 40 HR streak he'll only need 14 on the road.

    Yeah, I think he'll do that.

    Great signing by the Cubs if it happens.

    It's true that Dunn performs well at Wrigley, but that's probably due to the fact that the Reds rarely have runners in scoring position when they face the Cubs.

    Re: Dunn's first choice? The Windy City

    Cubs RFs, in 08, created 87 runs in 700 PA's.

    Dunn, for his career creates about 17 runs per 100 PA's.

    Dunn gets 650 PA's, that's 110 runs. Add in 50 PA's based on what the Cubs RF did last year and you add 7 runs.

    117 runs (+30)

    Cubs add Dunn to that offense and the rest of the NL central might as well stay home.

    Hopefully Dunn signs with Seattle or somebody.

    Are his 267 career AB statistically significant enough to be sure of or prove his Wrigley sucess...I can't imagine that they are. He has looked good there, thats for sure...but it could be a chance occurence if you ask me.

    Which is why, when I figured out my prediction for how he'd improve the Cubs RF numbers, I used his career numbers.

    Wow. I think he would later regret it. If he thinks Cincy fans were hard on him for Ks, he ain't seen nothing. The Wrigley crowd would boo him. A lot.

    I wasn't referring to your numbers, I was referring to the post that did bring his Wrigley numbers into the equation.
