    San Diego? They've got priority to us in the waiver order. Maybe they're looking to replace Will Venable. They've already tried to get better in the outfield by adding Ryan Ludwick.

    I sure hope it's not us.

    San Diego is the last team in the NL on the waiver priority. Doubtful Dunn falls to them with the Rockies and Giants in their division.

    I would like him in LF if Dusty would use him correctly.

    Ultimately he would bat him 6th or something completely wasting in OBP and then he would play Gomes and Dunn in the same outfield totally ruining any type of production you would get by making that move.

    Yeah, yer right. I was reading the rules wrong. Waiver priority only for the first month of the season is based on last year's record. After that, it's the current season's record.

    Why what? Why do I not want Dunn? Because he strikes out too much, doesn't hit with runners in scoring position, plays a terrible outfield, etc. Every complaint you've ever heard about Adam Dunn I agree with.

    For NL players the NL has first shot. For AL players, AL teams have the first shot.

    and yes, it goes by record.

    The Reds are not going to bring Adam Dunn back here. They did get rid of him because of what he did between the line it was in the clubhouse that Dunn fell out of favor with this team.

    Please show me one piece of evidence that Dunn was a problem in the clubhouse. According to his Nationals teammates he is a leader.


    "It would difficult," Stammen said. "The biggest thing, I think, would be in the clubhouse. He's such a resounding presence. He's not rah-rah, but he's a leader. We look up to him. We love having him on the team. Hopefully he'll be here for years to come."
