And where of course, he will torture the Sox until he retires. Trade him back to the NL.

Scherzer just turned down 8 yrs,144 mill.


I don't think he'll be a Tiger in 2015.

I heard it was 6 years, $144 mil. I'm guessing he may be looking towards 7 or 8 years or a bit more money.

the different between 8 years and 6 years at $144 million is ZERO. Not even my wife could spend that kind of money in three lifetimes!

Money is money, and there is a huge difference between $18 million and $24 million per year.

I hate this whole "They already make X amount" stuff. I'm not rich, either, but let's be real here. More money is more money, whether you are Bill Gates or Fred the handyman.

With Moreland out, does Dunn net Gallo in a trade right now?

Random stat mentioned during tonight's Red Sox-Tigers game after David Ortiz gave Boston the lead with a 3 run homer in the ninth:

Of active players, Ortiz has the third most game-tying or go-ahead home runs in the ninth inning or later. Number one? Adam Dunn.

34 yo platoon DHs hitting .234 don't bring prospects in return- we'll be lucky to get a salary dump-

Who cares about batting average?

They do when they have a .372 OBP and a 132 wRC+.

Teams willing to trade prospects they haven't given up on.

But even that is false.

Are we getting an A+, top 100 prospect for Dunn, probably not. Are we getting some B specs, I am sure.

If the White Sox throw in any cash, the caliber of prospect returning would certainly go up, but after eating Keppinger's deal, I don't know if ownership will allow it.

One raw, high-ceiling guy who doesn't rate all that highly would probably be what I would expect as a return if the other team took on Dunn's entire salary. If the White Sox threw in any money, I would expect either a higher-caliber prospect (not a top-100 guy, I think that's impossible to ask, but someone perhaps a little farther along in his development) or a second high-ceiling guy.
