Adam Dunn on waivers really isn't that big a deal

The Nationals placed Adam Dunn on waivers Tuesday afternoon.

F(avre)ESPN aside, the move may not be that big a deal. (Although, as with everything in sports, nothing is a big deal...until it is.) Pat Andriola asks "What now? and answers the question. Adam Kilgore explains why it's okay for you to take off your tinfoil cap and focus on the 11th day of Strasmas.

In Dunn's corner: From time to time, we're going to turn this space over to you. The first guest blogger is Andrew Eckert, whose mother, Melissa, happens to agree with the point he makes about Dunn. Eckert tweets @RadioFreeAndy.

On Monday night, Adam Dunn continued to show why he deserves to be paid above market value by the Nationals. Not only is he a fan favorite...not only is he a clubhouse favorite...he is one of the more productive guys on the team (with three home runs in the last five games).
In a time when HRs are coming down and A-Rod could probably use an injection to get his 600th, Dunn is on pace for 40 and 100 RBIs.
So he wants a four-year deal worth $60 mil? I say they should just drive that dumptruck of cash up to his house. Maybe throw in the money bag tattoos that are on Trent Williams shoulders.
This isn't any other league where overpaying a guy is going to really hurt your ability to sign somebody else. Everybody around here knows the Lerners are crazy rich. They don't have an NYC payroll going on. Matter of fact, they are in the middle of teams in payroll.
It's time to do something for the fans and the city. Keep the guy we want here for at least the next four years...please.

Fight night vs. the magnificent centaur: What's better than a ridiculously slooooow-to-evolve bench-clearing brawl? Only A-Rod missing the Yankees' team photo.

Have to agree with Mr. Eckert 100%. Dunn is the real thing and is needed to keep the power and team cohesiveness in place that will lead the way up out of the basement. Anything else is just cheap stupidity.
