By the way, Viciedo also has a lower WAR than Dunn.

If the Big Donkey calls it quits, the front office would push him into a clown car, which would take him to Midway, then put him on a plane to his doorstep.

He'll be back.

This quote brings to mind George Costanza.

WORST SOX SIGNING in my lifetime. My god do I hate this guy. I hated him the day we signed him. I hate him more now. I feel like we need a Harrison Ford signature: GET OFF MY TEAM.

Sox Army: Boo him into retirement.

At least the Sox moved me for a couple of useful players.

Extremely doubtful Dunn retires. However, I'll personally pay a moving company to help Keppinger leave.

Do you have a link for the TWTW rankings?

Hawk would tell you the Sox have the top 25 guys in that category.

Hmmm....I don't know...I'm convinced that the lack of TWTW is the main reason for this season's failure.

I still have no issue with Adam Dunn if he is a full-time DH batting 6th or 7th in a lineup.

He is what he is.

Shockingly, I agree.

That entails filling the 3,4,5,6 slots. Thats a lot of work to be done.

He still has a year left on his contract.
