There is no way I can see a deal for Sale not including 3-4 prospects unless it's two amazing prospects or two MLB player-level prospects and someone is taking Dunn's entire contract off the books next year (even then, I doubt that type of deal and dump would happen).

That's actually an interesting question. What would dumping Dunn's $14 million be worth to you? What would you do with that space? If Peavy and Rios both go plus what we lose in Konerko, that would l be one drastically reduced payroll next year.

It should be a lot easier to set Peavy's value once his health is ascertained.
Even healthy, I don't see a nice offer for him. We may have to take what is perceived as "less" because of his extensive injury history.

He is actually 3rd on Sox list of prospects. But he is a 3rd baseman and both Middlebrooks and Iglesias are still ahead of him at that position. Since they are not minor leaguers, they are not considered prospects. With Pedroia locking up 2nd, they have a logjam at 3rd for the 3 young infielders. Bogaerts is their Number 1 prospect ticketed for SS.

I don't know what I'd do, but I would bet that management would be pocketing $14 mil in that scenario without finding a suitable replacement.

We could probably find a suitable replacement for his batting average in A or AA. For the HR, you won't find someone, but I'm sure we could find someone to bat .250 or .260 for 1/3 the cost or less.

I'm ok with them pocketing the money for next year if they will use it for some Int'l FA signings, regular FA signings, or future extensions for guys we want to keep. After 2014, I hope they look at adding another year or two of years or club options for Sale. Not sure his Agent would be for it with the potential he could be a $25 million+ guy in a few years, but it's worth a try to see if we can add a year or two.
