Adam Dunn signs...

The Washington Nationals and Adam Dunn have agreed to a two-year contract, according to multiple reports.


The deal could be announced as early as Thursday, the Washington Post reported.

Hmm...that likely takes them out of the Manny running. I'll be interested to see what he signed for. Anyone know how the new Nationals park treats left-handed power hitters? Every year I tell myself I'm not going to own Dunn in any leagues, then every year I end up drafting him at least once, becoming extremely frustrated with him by the middle of the season, telling myself I'm never going to own him again, then repeating the process.

I don't think I've ever had Dunn on any team.

Depending on where he hits I would say he might be in a better situation than in Cincy. Guzman, Milledge, Dukes, Johnson should all have pretty good OBP.

Then again, I have never drafted him and don't see the point when you can get J Cust or Thome 15 rounds later with eerily similar value.

this sure creates a logjam. if nick johnson is healthy (for a couple of games) at first, they have milledge, dukes, willingham, patterson(?), kearns, wily mo fighting for time in the OF. they still have dmitri young at first even, dont they?

My view is that Dunn will play 1b; Kearns will be in the minors by the time opening day arrives.

Yea, thats a lot of 1b/of players, but I like the move by the Nat's I think they should explore some trades with Kearns/Willy Mo/Dukes/Young to improve the pitching rotation. Good move

Me too - I'm not nearly as keen about having him be one of my keepers now - though I still don't see how he hits less than 35/95 even in that park with that lineup...

Is it because Adam Dunn doesn't like baseball?
