Assuming the Nats have a chance to trade Adam Dunn, there are several paths they can take. They can try to trade him, they can sign him to an extension, or they can try to do both. Let’s assume if they DO trade him, he won’t give them a discount, and they’ll be stuck giving him 4 years/$60M like he’s asking, but he’ll choose here because he likes the players and understand the purpose of the trade. Finally, they could just let him walk and take a couple of draft picks for him Which would you rather see them do?
