But I would rather have Rizzo's upside than the almost three years we have seen of Dunn.
I doubt many Sox fans are happy with Dunn's production with the Sox. Dunn though was paid on the basis of what he had already achieved at the ML level. Rizzo has potential upside but unless he lives up to that potential the length of this contract will be the major hurt.
