I think the biggest key is they have to get him to commit fully to getting healthy. Whether that is surgery or strictly rehab, he needs to put as much determination in to it as he does in to playing

Double yes. Cannot even trade him if he is a .200 hitter who will lead the league in strikeouts every year.

No. Dunn fulfilled his contract and was granted his free agency.

Has he stated that he doesn't want surgery even in the offseason? If he got it at the beginning he would be ready for ST wouldn't he?

$506,000 in 2012?  Yea I think your 99% is accurate if not undersold.

This. Plenty of athletes have made a lot of money and ended up in bankruptcy.

Boras said that Danny might have off-season exploratory shoulder surgery.  At least there is conversation about it taking place it sounds like.

I do understand a guy who made millions going before a judge and explaining that he hasn't paid child support in six months because the only cash he has to his name isn't enough to buy a value meal at McDonalds

That isn't bankrupt,that's destitute.

The team seems to be kind of pissed off at Espinosa, I'm thinking that his issues are more mental than physical.

Good. I hope he eventually figures out whatever the issue is but I want him to stay away until he does.

Agreed. Maybe this will give Danny the opportunity to evaluate himself and get healthy

Yep. Love Danny long time, but he's gotta be able to play offense.
