Nationals Field Dimensions:

Left Field- 336 Feet
Left-Center Field- 377 Feet
Center Field- 402 Feet
Right-Center Field- 370 Feet
Right Field- 335 Feet

Last year the park was slightly above the league avg in hits, doubles, triples and runs...but slightly below avg in HR's

I still think he'll get between 35-40 hrs...and hit .240

He is still a top-10 OF in my OBP league.

I've owned him for years and watch him a lot. I don't recall too many HR's of his just clearing the fences, so I doubt the fence depth will mean much.

And the OBP for those 6x6ers out there?

Not really, Dunn is the better player for sure and Abreu is much older and in a clear decline phase as his power has largely left him leaving him as a high OBP player with decent speed who is average to below average in power and fielding.

Agreed. I think the "playing field", if you will, between these two is pretty darned equal when you weigh everything. I did hear that Abreu might have bonuses and/or incentives that could bring his deal to around $8 million though, so that is a bit more of a fair price than $5 million is IMO...

I heard that too but still a pretty good deal for the Angels. ;-D

He actually steals 5-10 bases a year.

I dont seem to remember Dunn hitting cheap homeruns. He hits no-doubters.
I dont think ballpark is a factor.
But if someone can dig up stats, prove me wrong.

per rotoworld

With Adam Dunn set to play first base in Washington, Nick Johnson is looking for a trade.

If the Nats commit to playing Dunn at first base, their ceiling is really no higher than it was yesterday. Johnson, of course, is extremely difficult to rely on. However, he's probably a better player than Dunn when healthy. Now, if they can trade Johnson and use the $5.5 million he's set to make to help them land Orlando Hudson, the whole deal will probably be worth it. The A's still might have some interest, and we wouldn't rule out Boston as a possible destination. He'd also be a big upgrade for the Giants, though they may not see it that way.
