How about Dunn for Nate Schierholtz?

Sorry I couldn't help it...

Even up, swapping player and contracts, I think that would be a steal for the White Sox, although they no longer need a rightfielder.

Maytbe tGiants management belives they could have won the NL West and World Series this year if they found more home runs and more strikeouts in their lineup.

The only team I could see Dunn going to would be the Yankees, with their shallow right field and deep pockets. I really wouldn't mind a Dunn-for-Alex Rodrieguez swap if the Yankees made it financially attractive to the White Sox, which is probably unlikely. Rodriguez would probably be better at third than Youkilis was for the White Sox in 2012. Youkilis' production for the White Sox fell off after the All-Star break. He compared well to Hudson, who comared well to Morel, but looking for a third baseman in trade seems a bigger gamble than picking up the Youkilis option.

Your prolly right with respect to giants payroll, I'm not familar with it just speculating based on the giants always wanting to add a bat or three every year (the tried for Soriano this year).

If Youk isn't re-signed I like the idea of Maicer Izturis.I know he isn't the prototype 3b. But I don't think he would be cost prohibitive. He would be an ideal 2 hitter and a switch hitter to boot. I know he lacks power, but are team certaintly doesn't.

The Sox need OBP. Dunn and YOuk give us a lot of that.

Yeah Dunn's .333 OBP is exactly what this team needs

Stick him in left and have Viciedo DH.

I for one am shocked he wasn't quoted as saying, "I don't want Youkilis, AJ or Myers back in 2013"

Positively shocked!

There is no way the Sox are going to consider the Tank at 3B. He is a below average out fielder and would be a poor choice at 3B. I hope the Sox can move Dunn for a 3B or CF maybe a sign and trade with Boston for Ellsbury.

He's bad defensively? I dont know what your basis is for this statement, but Kevin Youkilis is a good defensive third baseman.

He has finished 7th and 5th respectively the last 2 years in fielding percentage in MLB the past 2 seasons.

I don't think Tank's a good option at 3B, but let's be real here, at the very least, he's an average corner outfielder and, depending on how much stock you put into some defensive metrics, one of the best LF in the AL last year.

Fielding percentage is a roundly awful way to look at a player's defensive capabilities. In terms of Youk, all you need is the eye test; he was fine when he first got to Chicago, but as the season dragged on and his knees wore down, he got worse and worse. I can't remember how many times in the last 2 months of the season someone would hit a ball sharply in the area of 3B and Youkilis just kind of helplessly stood there, unable to make any kind move to the ball. Doesn't get charged with an error (and pad that fielding percentage) but a better defensive 3B may have made some play on some of those balls.

Youkilis is only valuable as long as he's healthy and I'm not sure he's going to be able to play the amount of innings and games to justify the kind of contract offer he might get.

I think Youk may sign elsewhere if he is offered a 1B position. You have to think if he can find a team he likes that wants him to play first, that may ease some of his injury woes. I don't think he wants to be a DH though so that may not factor in if some team offers him that

I think he's going to sign with the team that offers him the best contract
