Dodgers need Dunn. Dodgers have a pretty good BA for a team. People get on base, they just need that big banger in the lineup to bring them home. Dunn can provide that!

Man this FA class stinks. I take stab at a couple.

Carlos Zambrano - I think the Cubs will re-sign him unless the Mets just unload an obscene amount of money. As a Cubs fan, all thoses losses might be getting to him too though. :o

Ichiro - Boston. Don't ask me where they'll get the money, but I think they'll dump Drew, Pena and Lugo to someone else to help pay for him. Imagine Ichiro and Youkilis in front of Ortiz and Manny. :-°

Abreu - Houston. I have absolutely no reason why. I just see him returning to the team that drafted him, and they could use at the top of their order.

Jones - Toughest to call. I'll take the Cardinals. They need to replace Edmonds and Pujols won't like being sandwhiched between Spezieo and Duncan again.

The Jays already have 4 OFers. Johnson, Wells, Rios, Lind. no reason to add another one with a big contract.
acsguitar wrote:8. Ichiro Suzuki (34) (Red Sox)

The Sox also have a ton of OFers. Manny, Drew, Crisp, Pena and they also have Ellbury, their top positional prospect, sitting in Triple A.

Kendall has 2 more years and they already have Suzuki on his way up. I highly doubt this!

Hey ACS you and I think alike at least when it comes to the Dodgers. While they need a bat, their farm system is very deep and the young guys have proven that they can replace the vets well. So while I think they need a big bat, I don't think they're going to want to pay for it, and they have a lot of competition. On the other hand, their pitching staff gets a lot more credit than it deserves, in that Schmidt is a real question mark now and since they have to pull all these other guys into the rotation as a result (Kuo, Billingsley), they have a paper thin bullpen, what with Saito on a one-year contract. If Broxton takes over as closer, you've got Hendrickson as setup man, and your seventh-inning guy is Tomko? :P

So I agree they go after a starter to put one of their high-K low-reliability guys (Kuo, Billingsley) back into an MR role.
