I don't think I would trade Bourn for Dunn. You already have a bunch of slumping sluggers in Carlos Lee and Markakis etc. I would get a few more starts out of your stud pitching and try to move some of them for power later on assuming that you aren't too far out of the race.
It mostly depend on how far back you are in the power categories. If you are already way back, you might have to do the deal now. But if your close and all you need is for the power bats in your lineup to wake up, I'd stand pat for now.

On top of that, IIRC, your team is not solid when it comes to AVG so perhaps you can ditch that category altogether if you choose to.
Really tough but I'd probably do it cuz Dunn fits in with guys like Fielder, Werth, Markakis when it comes to the power game/run production.
You think if I grabbed Nyjer for Smoak that it would offset the loss in steals?
Even if you grab Morgan, would you really play him over Matsui, Prado, etc? I don't think I would. I mean you can if you really want stls but personally I'd ditch that cat. Seems like you have to choose between stls/avg and hr/rbi. I'd side with the latter since your team seems to have been built around it more.
Can you help me with mine.....I edited in who is available to replace Alexei.
