Do you think Ed Wade made Adam Dunn face a harsh reality?

Adam Dunn has had an offer on the table from the Nationals since at least January 29. So do you think it's a coincidence that, two days after Easy Eddie said the Astros had no interest in pursuing Adam Dunn, he and the Nationals agreed on a two-year, $20 million deal?

I don't. Anyway, there's no way the Astros approve $10 million (provided it's a split deal) for 2009. I bet Dunn was holding out to see what the Astros would do, and when he found out they were out, signed the deal with the Nationals. Thoughts?
