Adam Dunn is a free agent: Tigers "hopeful but you never know"

Recommended Posts

If Dunn is signed as the DH, how would a bad defensive team have gotten worse? I don't think they are pursuing Dunn to be in LF, or 1b for that matter. They are pursuing him to be DH and are probably willing to give him and extra year guaranteed in order to do so.

Ok, I guess I'm redundant :-) Looks like a bunch of us had the same thought at the same time.

He'll play the field as well.

Ask Sheffield.

I highly doubt it. He'll play a game a series against interleague teams - on the road, 1B a game, rest the other.

When he plays 1B, Cabrera will rest.

I think he might get some games at 1b and Cabrera at DH to keep Cabrera fresh as well as keeping Dunn happier because he wants to play the field. Maybe once a week, or once every 10 games or so. I agree he wont play much if any OF.

I like the idea of a full time DH - something the Tigers have been really missing for some time.

And the good news, for me anyway, is that Carlos Guillen will soon be given his marching orders!

This team has no shortstop or second baseman and they go after yet another DH?

We already have about 5. Well 4 if they don't re-sign Maggs.

Johnny Mac - I agree, I could see them playing Dunn a bit at first to keep him happy, and to keep Cabrera fresh.

Wow, how awesome would those two next to one another be --- SIGN ADAM DUNN!!!

Cabrera plays a perfectly competent first base.

Carlos Guillen is one. Who else? That's all I've got.

Oh. We have Peralta.

Awesome.

Problem solved.

Sign TWO DHs then.

Our 5 (or 4) that had close to a league worst OPS the last 3 years?

Alls I'm sayin' and I likes a sayin' it, is that if they sign Dunn, they're still a 3rd place team.

Add a starting pitcher that's decent and I feel a whole lot better.

EDIT: Then you can get away with not having defense. A little.

EDIT AGAIN: With Dunn of course. Good pitching and seven runs a game will overcome a lot of errors.

Last I heard Dunn would take a deal from the Nats if they gave him 4 years but they don't want to give him that. If the Tigers are offering 4 or 5 years he might very well jump on it.

Let's get him...I'm almost thinking now, they won't sign crawford, just due to the fact he'll want to much $$.

I also say go out and bid on werth, get vmart...and possibly another starting pitcher

I bet he has a 4.0 GPA.:ponder:
I'm not convinced he's playing in Sam's league yet, actually. I'm just not digging all the personal attacks this week, myself. Edited by DaYooperASBDT

If we get Dunn, I don't want VMart, unless Avila is gone.

Bust the bank for Werth + Dunn. It's time for the Tigers to make a serious WS run in 2011

Yes!

Werth, Cabrera, Dunn .. that'd be dangerous!

lol, there are very few things more pathetic than correcting simple spelling errors on an internet message board.

are you one of those guys who makes sure people use "your" and "you're" correctly too?
