I was one of the many happy to see Adam Dunn finally out of Cincinnati and on his way to Arizona last season. Yeah, he hits 40 HRs every year and gets on base a lot by walking, but other than that all you get for your $12M is a lumbering left fielder who strikes out a lot.
Just seemed to me that $12M could be spent in much better ways.
But what if the market for Adam Dunn just collapses? What if there are no takers at $16M a year. None at $12M. None at even $10M a year. Would you want Adam Dunn back in a Red's uni for three years at like $8M per season?
I'd say at that price, with Cincy's shortage of outfielders and the fan base he's already got here, it would be almost impossible to say no. It'll be interesting to see how the bidding goes for big Adam but as of right now it doesn't look to be like a bull market for Dunn.
