I think Berkman would stay at first because of his knee.

Berkman is the 1B of the future in HOU it appears.

And thanks for bailing me out with those stats Hootie. ;-D

B/C the Reds organization/management isn't necessarily the brightest or smartest around ;-7 !+)

they will be labeled a lot worse than that if they trade dunn for this little bit of prospects ;-7 ..... but this trade, if it goes through, would definitely put the astros into heavy contention for the wild card......

The Reds organization is screwed up. This would be a stupid trade.

2 year hr index at GAB
LHB 113 hr index

3 year index at MM
LHB 84 hr index

MM is terible on LHB. Dunn has 21 hrs this year, 16 at GAB. A trade imo lowers Dunns value in most scenerios.

May be true for most players, but Dunn is a behemoth. He doesn't hit homers that are barely over the wall, he literally hits them into the next state. His valued won't be lowered as much, especially when you consider he won't be facing Oswalt, Clemens and Pettitte anymore and instead feast on Milton, Harang, and whatever crap the Reds call a pitching staff.

Edit: Also, Dunn won't have to eat any of that stupid Chili in Cincinatti, you know, the one that comes on top of spaghetti? That's got to account for an extra 10 homers a year.

Can't argue there. With only 1/6 the gravity of Earth, pretty much any flyball is going to be a home run. Also, with no atmosphere, pitchers will be reduced to a fastball/change combo, since all other pitches rely on air resistance. I'd estimate about 200 HRs a year from Dunn if he was traded to the Moon.


Yeah but he'd still K close to 200 times... and most of htose hr's would be solo shots! :-D
