It doesn't seem like these contenders want Dunn. The Pirates just picked up Byrd. The Rangers who seem to have a major hole at DH don't want Dunn either. I read somewhere that the Rangers plan on on using Nelson Cruz as there DH in the 2013 playoffs. I'm beginning to wonder if the White Sox are going to get stuck with Dunn for the 2014 season. Dave Schuester of the SCORE has said on the radio that Dunn has told him he intends to keep playing after his contract is up after the 2014 season. If that is the case I hope he doesn't sign another contract with the White Sox.
This all reeks of bull****, except that he will keep playing after his contract expires because, oh, I don't know, HE'S ONLY 33?

Whom did you talk to? Southpaw, a member of the Chevrolet Pride Crew or the bartender at Bacardi at the Park?

And he will end up with 500+ HRs.

It tells me no one wants to take on his salary for the rest of this year and next year. This says NOTHING about what could happen this winter or next season. We also have no idea if some club inquired about Dunn at the trade deadline or not. Not every inquiry or move is published by the media.

Hes not worth his salary, no one will take him unless the Sox salt and pepper part of his salary. In order for the Sox to get anything in return a large portion of his salary will have to be eaten. Basically he is worthless.

So why not pay a good chunk of it (which you will have to do anyway) and get something of value (prospect) for him? There is value there. Keeping him on this team next year is worthless to the Sox.

If they can get a decent prospect, I agree but you would figure that teams in the hunt at this time of year would be more desperate than a team starting next year. If the Sox dont want him for next year why would other teams?

Hopefully they'll be willing to eat half that salary. We need a fresh start.
