Who else needs outfield help and could be a potential destination?


the dodgers do have a pressing outfield need and they certainly have a logjam in starting pitching. I think if he gets traded he will end up here...

who is walker's backup at colorado?


Mark Sweeney?

The other issue is that they are somewhat different players in terms of how they help you--if you need SBs, stick with Bradley.


Yes, this is Roto league with the scoring being:

R H 1B 2B 3B HR RBI SB K E AVG OBP SLG

As you can see, there is a lot of focus on hitting. Dunn will kill me in AVG and K's as well as OBP

Isn't he signed fairly cheap...something like $1.7M for one year. A very good gamble for a bunch of teams. I would not be surprised at all to see the mets make a push for him. He'd fit nicely in Right field. Although, I think they are gearing themselves up for a run at Beltran, after the year, if not during it. Still, Bradley woudl be a nice short term option that could be oved pretty easily if need be.

He seems like a good fit for the Dodgers...

Bradley is a "moneyball" player -- high OBP. DePodesta was Beane's assistant in Oakland and this will be his first chance to put his stamp on the Dodgers.

As an aside -- It seems that Podesta won't tolerate for long these "all defense" middle infielders -- Izturis and Cora.

I would trade him if I could, although if you have a league of on the ball owners you probably won't get much for him.

I will give you AVG and K's, but Dunn will definitely not kill you in OBP...actually that is one category he is good in. If he can somehow get his average up to .260 he will most likely have a OBP of well over .400. He had something like a .371 OBP last year and only had a .215 AVG.
