Not that this matters to any of you, but I chatted with my group of baseball-loving friends this weekend and none of them could understand why any Sox fan would want Dunn to just walk away. His power numbers alone are worth it. He just shouldn't be hitting higher than sixth in a lineup.

The notion that he stinks because he has never been on a winning team is laughable at best, and Chicago Tough at worst.

You guys are turning Adam Dunn into my favorite player.

He's a DH with a .769 OPS. He makes 15 million dollars a year. Chris Carter is pretty darn close to that at under half a million. He sucks.

And how many of the top 5 players in home runs are on teams in first place in either league?

Dunn is one of those guys who has great numbers at the end of the year but when you watch him day in and day out you realize how little he contributes. He has contributed much more this year than in 2012 but he didn't start hitting until the team started to collapse (which is not his fault). I would also be curious to know how many guys he has left stranded. He is hitting .153 with 2 home runs in late and close situations and only 4 home runs with 28 RBIs in high leverage situations. Maybe those aren't the best stats to judge him with but my point is that Dunn contributes far less than his line would suggest.

1. This is a ludicrous argument, and I would hope anyone with any baseball acumen would know why.

2. Look at the Top 10+. So many playoff teams.

As they would say in NES Pro Wrestling, "A Loser is You."

Huh? The two-year deal that allowed us to get Avisail Garcia in return?

I don't think one should judge a signing by what a team eventually got in a dump trade.

Peavy produced.
Danks hasn't, Dunn really hasn't either (not what we need).
But the worst was Navarro or perhaps even that clown 3B we got from the Royals that we extended before he played an inning with us.

Teahen?

Navarro was the worst of all those mentioned. High salary, poor production, bad attitude.

If I'm attempting to build a winner the last guy I would want is Adam Dunn.

Exactly. It might not be his fault that he's been on all those losing teams but he sure as heck doesn't help make you a winner either.

Nah, I meant the one we traded for where we paid him approx. $800k per start for 3+ years.

That makes sense, and I agree that was a terrible deal from a financial standpoint. It just wasn't a free agent signing.
