Interesting slide show ranking the top 10 designated hitters and Bleacher Report (B/R) ranked Dunn #5. Looking back with 20-20 hindsight, the Sox signed Dunn in early December 2010. The Blue Jays were lucky enough to sign Edwin Encarnacion, who is the #1 B/R D-H, as a free agent after clearing waivers from Oakland. in mid December 2010. He greatly improved to a near-40 home run player when they switched him to DH from 3B/1B. They paid him low, but recently gave him an extension around 66% of Dunn's annual. Jays got lucky too with the Sox taking Rios' salary off their books. Hopefully the Sox will do better with their roster in the future, not be too careless, as they rebuld.
