At first, I wasn't even considering Dunn (would be my DH). But man those HRs are tough to throw away.



Yeah, I guess it's the age-old philisophical question: 1. Do you trust pitching or don't trust pitching, and 2. Isn't pitching deep? Can't I find pitching later?

So when you think about #2, and you KNOW that almost no one else will approach Dunn's power numbers...then even though Morrow is an incredible value at $8; law of averages, I guess, would say that you have a greater chance of duplicating Morrow near $8; and less of a chnace of duplicating Dunn's potential at $34

Don't get me wrong, some hitters will surprise, we just don't know which ones, and they will be few when compared to surprising pitchers IMO)
Sorry to ramble. Just love value questions.

Hummm... it seems like folks here are pretty split between Dunn or an extra pitcher... and those who say keep Dunn seem to also vary on what pitcher to keep. So if you WERE to drop a pitcher and keep Dunn, which would it be?
Shaun Marcum $1
Brandon Morrow $8
Clay Bucholz $7
Phil Hughes $9
