I'd rather have Dunn.


Yeah but Dave Kingman was tall


LOL. I guess we will never be able to have another discussion about Dunn without skepticism. I was actually being serious even though I realize PBD was not. I'd love to have Dunn.

I actually was being serious. Abreu is much older than Dunn and there's no chance that he'll still be a Pirate if and when this team becomes competitive again. Dunn could be signed and is still young enough to contribute in a few years.

Gotcha. Yesterday's marathon has dulled my senses. I'd love to sign Dunn.

This is awesome, the argument that I had yesterday that was deemed so shockingly stupid, is the same argument that Peter Gammons makes...

Quote:
I still believe that one of the factors that has hurt some of the good offensive free agents this winter, like Manny Ramirez, Abreu and Adam Dunn, is the concern about how many runs they give back defensively. There is a great deal more appreciation for defense than there was a decade ago.


No mention of OPS or OBP anywhere...

Damn it feels good to be a gangster...

Dont forget, though, Gammons recently had a stroke.

Hes really getting trashed for the interview, that he was way soft. One columnist said he looked like a defense attorney questioning his own client. Ouch.
