Gammons: Dunn “Most Intriguing Free Agent”

In the latest issue of Baseball America, writer Peter Gammons lists Adam Dunn as his fourth “most intriguing free agent”:

He is spending the winter at Athletes Performance Institute trying to get into the best shape of his career.  The Diamondbacks liked him; they’re just not willing to spend the money.  But they felt his on-base percentage and power and enjoyment of the pennant race were good.  Dunn wants to play for a contender, so Washington may be out.

So apparently Dunn does have enthusiasm for the game.

Gammons mentioned Washington because earlier rumors said that Leatherpants was interested in adding one more former Red to his team in the nation’s capital.

I really wish the best for Dunn since he is a product of the Reds’ farm system and hope he can contribute to a team in contention.  It won’t be easy for me to see him in another uniform left to wonder “what could have been” if certain people hadn’t run him out of town.

It is hard to imagine that he is a worse player option for the Reds at this point given that a potential outfield of Dickerson, Freel, and Bruce are what is projected for 2009.

The other free agents mentioned in Gammons’ article were Furcal, Lowe, Ibanez, and Milton Bradley.
