It sounds like it could be likely. So I'm going to believe it's likely, because what the hell else am I supposed to do in the offseason but hope good things happen?

It makes sense because of what PK told management, I'm tired of 2nd place.
I think that PK forced their hand and now he comes back to the Sox and a WS contender.

I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see Dunn helping the Sox much, unless it leads to re-signing Konerko. Unfortunately, it seems to me more likely the Sox will have Dunn instead of Konerko, which would be a downgrade both offensively and defensively.

It gets people excited for the 2011 season, though, just as trading Steve Stone, Nick Swisher's father and Ken Frailing for Ron Santo got people excited about the 1974 season 27 Decembers ago.

Dunn is obviously a great power hitter. However, $14 mil a year is a lot of money. Now Konerko might come back, probably at $14 mil also. With our rotation, that is going to be something like $80 mil invested in 7 players, Quentin presumably is going to be moved, we will get a new RF and we still have no bullpen outside of Thornton. I don't know how they are going to make it work financially unless they substantially raise payroll. Good luck, Kenny. You've got a lot of work ahead of you.
Good. Send Viciedo and Quentin to STL for Rasmus.

Put Rasmus in CF, put Rios back in RF.

Let's not pretend like Kenny and Jerry don't want to win and Paulie forced them into this.

Backload Paulie's contract (or at least lighten it up front) so Edwin, Pierre and Linebrink are all off the docket after this year...

Wouldn't be opposed to trying to deal Viciedo if they can get value in return.

Really?

Adam Dunn = 1974 edition of Ron Santo?

Ala PK after 2005, no way Konerko resigns unless he has some protection in the order. Now he does.

I was just talking about this with my dad and he was saying that he thought that pitching was going the biggest problem going into the off season. There are a lot of question marks left to be addressed still, especially in the bullpen.

Dunn is definitely NOT a downgrade offensively.
