Default The Adam Dunn Poll Thread

Testing this statement:

Quote:
Most fans just want to see him gone obvously. Even if his replacement is as bad or worse, at least it's not him.
Edit: Public poll folks, put your money where your mouth is.

Completely disagree with that statement. I want the Sox to win! Dump him, when you have someone that will put up better numbers. Until then, make him play but bat him lower.

Edit: I am not opposed to dumping him if it would save the Sox some money. As for getting prospects, I doubt Dunn would net us much of anything. If Hahn can trade Dunn, save the team some cash and get a player in return he would be GM of the year.

I'd trade him if they can get someone in return even if they have to eat salary. I just don't see this team going anywhere this year so I can understand if they cut and run.

I don't want him flat cut. I see NO upside in that.

I just edited my post to agree with your vote as well.
I would cheer dumping him in that scenario.

Like you, I see no upside whatsoever by just flat out cutting him.

Let's put it this way...if the Sox announced they released Dunn and just ate the final $25 mil left, I would be happy I don't have to watch him anymore.

That said, it's not very likely this season. Maybe a year from now if he's a bust after two months, maybe they dump him with four months left on his contract.

One thing is for sure- Adam Dunn will never play a playoff game in a Sox uniform, so the sooner he's gone, the better.

Only if there is someone better to play . Nobody wants that contract so that is a mute point. He is one of the few Sox who can actually drive in a run.
