Even if the Sox have to eat 9 and get a mediocre prospect, maybe they can use the money to sign a quality free agent as part of the rebuild.
My fear is Dunn is worse next year and the Sox get the mediocre prospect and nothing else next July.
He definitely should be shopped and probably will be shopped, but I just don't know if there will be any takers. Other GMs are not stupid. They see the same weaknesses in Dunn's game that we all see.
