Dunn for Manny?

Shysterball has an interesting take:

If I’m Theo, I call up Jocketty right now and offer a straight-up Manny for Dunner deal. Manny is pro-rata $20M for the rest of the year with club options the Reds can decline. Dunn is $13M pro-rata, with a $500K buyout. If the money is an issue for the Reds, I’m sure Boston would throw a little their way to get the deal done. Dunn would have to approve — he can list ten clubs to which he would accept a trade — but I would sincerely hope he would approve a deal to the Red Sox for the chance at a ring, even if his long term future is with the Rangers or something.

An intriguing scenario, however, I still say that the Reds need to re-sign Dunn.  His .941 OPS ranks ninth in the NL and he is currently OPS+ of 141, exactly where he finished his 2005 season and five points below his 2004 season.
