Swisher vs. Dunn

There is all this speculating about trading Prado and something for Swisher but is that really the best available option?  We all know Wren is looking for a right handed corner outfield power bat i.e.  Pat Burrell but is too poor a defensive player so we've heard zero discussion on him.  We all "want" Adam Dunn because like someone said in an earlier post 40 home runs is 40 home runs doesn't matter what side of the plate it comes from.  So it seems that we will settle for Nick Swisher even though he is clearly the least potent bat of the three. 

 

Swisher has never hit over .262, never had a 100+ rbi season and the only season he came close is the season he hit 35 home runs and on a moneyball team like the one he was on he should have drove in more runs all things considered.

It should be noted that both Burrell and Dunn have played in hitter's parks the majority of their careers but with all three you will get .250, .380, .480 minimum.  So at least go after the guy that's going to produce the most runs for you and that guy isn't Nick Swisher

i'm just saying if you're going to go for piss poor  you might as well get Pat Burrell.
