Would you trade Josh Beckett for Adam Dunn?

If we didn't get Delgado during the offseason, I would have said YES to this trade without a doubt and I would think 99% of Marlins fans would have as well. But we don't need TWO power hitting lefty bats in the lineup that will combine for well over 300+ strike outs.

 

We have Delgado, so my vote is a big no.

I would say no even without Delgado. There was a big debate on this site earlier in the year about Dunn, but I'm not a big fan of his for some reason. For Beckett... no way.

The real question isn't "would you" but rather "why" would you?

 

What's in it for the Marlins? If you had proferred a trade of AJ (only for contract reasons) for Dunn there you might of had a something debatable, but from my perspective there's nothing, with or without Delgado in the mix, that makes the question worth discussing.

I'm with you, but strikeouts have never bothered me.

Too many strikeouts'll start to bother you, power is tantalizing, but I'd rather have a team of doubles hitters than a team of all or nothing power guys...

All or nothing power dudes with high OBPs.

If only he had the ability to hit 50+ HRs and drive in 130+ RBIs...

My thoughts are with many of the Marlins fans as no way. Beckett's talents rival that of almost any pitcher in the majors and he is still learning how to "pitch" and stay healthy. While Dunn rivals all power this side of Bonds, he still is not a great player in almost any other way.

 

However, I am stil curious as to what the Reds' fans have responded to this. Can anyone summarize or copy and paste their thoughts?
