OK. Can't argue with that. The Sox made no long term investment in him.

People are just going to have to live with the reality the Sox aren't going to eat the $25 or so million left that they owe Dunn. Adding more washed up veterans who don't belong in the Majors isn't going to solve any problems, especially when you consider the Sox's 40-man roster is currently full.

Everything you said is probably correct; however, I don't care the cost, I just don't want to see Dunn in our lineup anymore, really, ever again. It's unbearable. I'd rather pay him 25 million to go away than 25 million to ruin the offense.

Its just so hard to watch and enjoy the games knowing he is going to come up and strike out or hit into the shift time after time after time.

Hey there's a word that can associate these two. I'll give you a hint, one has hole and the other jack associated with them.

In all seriousness, who on earth would sign the mentally imbalanced brain of Z? No thanks.

Let me rephrase:

I think that they would be wiser to pay Dunn 25 mil to go away rather than pay him 25 mil to ruin the offense.

I understand that its their decision and their money, but as a fan, I reserve the right to pass judgement on how they spend their money because, frankly, I spend a crap load of money on their team.

I'll grant that his best days are far, far behind him, but .290/13/63 is ****ing terrible? How would you have described Dunn's line from that season? Also, why do you always get angry with someone who suggests something you don't agree with?
