    Sox in talks for Dunn

    I guess the Sun Times (and Buster Olney) is reporting that the Nats are trying to decide whether to sign him to an extension, or to deal him to the Sox.

    The Chicago White Sox? Or the Bean town Sox?

    Re: Sox in talks for Dunn

    White Sox, and I am not sure why. Does Pauly need some more time off or are they just that unhappy with Kotsay?

    Kotsay. This would bump Kotsay to the bench role that he'd be much better in.

    Dunn is a perfect fit for the White Sox. Perfect.

    I hope the White Sox snag him before Cashman does something stupid like sign him.

    Don't you feel he'd just rake in the New Yankee Stadium though....

    So Dunn would basically become a younger version of Thome

    Kind of, except Dunn's a little less scary in the field. A little less.

    Re: Sox in talks for Dunn

    Dunn would be a sweet DH for the Chi Sox.....and it is going to be tight between 3 teams for a while I think after the all-star break.

    I would be all for it! Would better help the Sox to another Central Title.

    Agreed now that interleague is done he would help since we cant seem to beat anyone in the central

    Re: Sox in talks for Dunn

    His lifetime average and strikeouts (195 in one year alone) scare the crap out of me, but it'd be nice to have a true DH, especially one with the RBI numbers he has. Not sure if Kotsay could play 3rd but with Vizquel playing the majority of games there maybe the Sox can move Mark Teahen. I don't know why we continue to pick up Royals rejects, I'm not sure if we've had one work out yet and we've had a few be disasters (Mike MacDougal).

    Who do they give up though? They have left themselves pretty bare after the Peavy and Pierre deals. I believe the Nats want young pitching in return....

    Kotsay throws left handed so he won't be playing 3rd.

    Do you also judge pitchers by their number of wins? Just curious.
