Interestingly enough, a Nats fan casually suggested this when asked by another Sox fan (not me) what would it take to get Dunn. This is the alternative to his first choice of Thornton/Flowers. For the record, no other Nats fan on the board endorsed either of these proposals.

It's Dankerific

No way. we should have signed him if we wanted him.

If i'm trading Hudson for a lefty bat it better be Prince Fielder or adrian Gonzalez.

Is Donny Lucy for real as a backup to AJ? He showed some promise this year.

Hudson............hard to part with a pitcher from the Pitcher Factory also known as Old Dominion.

If this kid Sale looks like he's for real and starts putting himself in a position to fulfill the terms of his contract, I might do it, provided we can extend Dunn.

Only the most logical conclusion to come to. Which is why it should also be logical to come to the conclusion that it's just not going to happen. :(:

And you can forget about Gonzalez now, obviously.

Brewers need pitching, pitching, and more pitching. For Fielder, I'd give them Hudson and any three other prospects they want. I just don't know if the Sox have that.

Agree

My goodness, trade our best prospect for 1/2 a season of Dunn?

And Konerko has "no trade value"

Yes.

Pardon me for having no faith in any White Sox prospect, I'd much rather dump Hudson before he ruins his trade value by proving he can't play at the Major League level.

I would not trade Thornton. For anything.

No kidding. Not to mention...the pitching has been great, but the offense is still hit or miss. A guy like Dunn can fix that easy.

Not even a five-team deal where we send Thornton to the Pirates and get Mauer, Halladay, Pujols and cash in return? :bandance:

I was just about to ask about a trade where we got Pujols or Hanley Ramirez in return.

The pitching even with this hot streak is 21st in the MLB. Hudson is an actual pitcher backing up this staff. If someone goes down you need a pitcher who can step in and not get rocked. Hudson so far has shown he can at least be a 5th starter. Sale at this point is a reliever - at least til next year.

Um, we already have a 1B and SS. :tongue:

I would just like to reitterate my point that I would trade just about anyone in the organization for Dunn. He's basically exactly what this team needs, a left-handed, power-hitting DH/COF/1B type that can also get on base. I mean, am I missing something here?

LF Pierre
3B Vizquel
CF Rios
DH Dunn
1B Konerko
RF Quentin
C Pierzynski
SS Alexei
2B Bacon

Are you guys kidding me?

Not arguing against your point here, but it is worth noting that Dunn plays 1B like a DH, worse than Teahen at 3B, and no, I'm not joking.

That's fine, this organization hasn't filled its vacancy at DH since last September.

Dunn would be a monster at the Cell. I mean a MONSTER! Like Jaba the Hut or Pizza the Hut.

20th in ERA now (stats updated since this morning)
15th in BAA
18th in wins.
middle of the pack in QS and SHO

And this is after an amazing stretch of pitching.

Another stat worth noting is that the Sox have the fewest innings pitched by its relievers in the AL Central.

12 million dollars, a career .250 avg. (In the NL), and Hudson being 9-3 with 92 K's through 76.1 IP, and no other (ready) good pitching prospect to back up the rotation.

Its not an easy no risk move. Its not a bad trade but its doesn't come without risk. Hudson looks like a decent #3 right now.
