…. Been there, Dunn that

I seem to have gotten a lot of flak for suggesting that Adam Dunn might be a free agent the Giants could use. I understand he’s a flawed player, but for crying out loud, so is every player on the roster, (with the possible exception of the Franchise). Dunn’s flaws are well-known, but so are his strengths, power and walks, only the most lethal combination of plusses a player can have.

Oh, and for all intents and purposes; he could be landed for something like $12 million per, or just a bit more money than the team just wasted on Edgar Renteria.

At Baseball Reference.com, Dunn’s list of most comparable players is, quite frankly, filled with Hall of Famers and superstars, names like Barry Bonds, Daryl Strawberry, Jose Canseco, Harmon Killebrew, Reggie Jackson, Roger Maris, Troy Glaus, Pat Burrell, Boog Powell, Kevin Mitchell …. I mean, are you kidding me? That’s a hell of a list. And here he is, a 29 year old who’s hit 40 or more home runs five years in a row, and he can’t find a job? He’s not good enough for the team with the worst offense in baseball?

Oh wait, he has stone hands and no range? Please. What a crock.

The guy is a poor man’s Texiera, and could be had for something like 4 years, $50 million (you know, like the deal we gave Aaron Rowand, who is half the player with a bat in his hands), and he would be a splash hit threat every time he came to the plate. Or maybe we should just give 450 at bats to this guy.
