That's exactly it. It's tough to sell high on a guy like Dunn with the negative rep of being a whiff king and an average killer. Most of the time, holding him is better than turning him over for peanuts, especially if you believe like I do that he's going to go off one of these years and jack 50+.
Yeah, he was sold in our keeper league preseason for Carlos Quentin. If I vetoed deals (which I don't) that one would have been vetoed BIG time. I'm happy with him but needed some speed and average help badly and was loaded in pitching so I just dealt him in a package where I sent Santana, Valverde, Dunn, and Bill Hall for Nathan, Ichiro, Rollins, and Hawpe (throw-in to even the players). I lose a bit on value especially if Santana does his typical second-half thing but my team needed the r/sb/avg that Ichiro and to a lesser extent Rollins can bring to the table.
