I would love to see Dunn in Twins colors. The writer who said Dunn doesn't fit with the Twins is wrong. Just because they haven't had a power DH in ages doesn't mean that's the plan. A risk free DH is impossible to come by in the offseason (and the Twins always go the risk-free route), and the farm system just hasn't been able to produce a power hitter other than Morneau as much as they've tried. So, I think Dunn is the perfect fit for the Twins DH. An ironman who can put the ball over the fence often. It's what the Twins have been missing.

Not only that, Krivsky is ex-Twin management and has good relations with Terry Ryan and Terry Ryan has the right card to play with Matt Garza- A guy that has been complaining about the Twins system- a system that has too many young pitchers and not enough bats. Perfect. The Twins could also resign Dunn and figure that they would have had to pay good money to Garza a couple years down the road anyway. Maybe that won't happen but it still seems like the right move for both teams. I bet the they are talking.

Don't know if these have significant merit (or fantasy implications) or not, but I thought I'd pass them along.



Where are they gonna play Griff? :?

Presumably, they'd stick him in LF, or slide Francoeur into LF and play KGJ in RF.

Thought I'd give you an update on Dunn. There are some rumblings on local radio stations (and maybe even LA stations but I can't say that for sure) that we're in the middle of the48 hour window a team has to work out an extension with Dunn in order for the trade to go through. It's rumored to be with the Dodgers and to include Broxton, Loney, or both.

Krivsky has "no comment" that a trade is "Dunn".

My money is on Broxton. :D

Why not play him at catcher so McCann can start 1 game per week instead of 3. ;7 :[
