Interesting article from Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune this morning.
The Astros may be secretly pursuing Adam Dunn on a one-year deal, moving Hunter Pence to center field and Michael Bourn to the bench (or to Round Rock).
Rogers makes a good point: the players know what the market is, and they know - unless they're Manny Ramirez, whose agent, Scott Boras, has other issues on the table right now - what their financial options are. So now they're looking for the right fit. And a multi-year offer from Washington doesn't seem to appeal to Big Donkey. So maybe a one-year deal from Houston would be the right fit.
Back in November I shot down the idea that Dunn could fit, but that was dependent on Michael Bourn's presence in center. If that's up for discussion, there could be a fit.
