Olney & Sherman’s Adam Dunn to Yankees trade rumors clash

Adam Dunn to somewhere the American League” seems to be the biggest rumor left in the trade deadline now that Roy Oswalt has finally found a new home. The worst part about being a blogger during the final week of the trade deadline is dealing with conflicting reports.

Yesterday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post, a highly credible reporter, posted an article headlined “Yankees finished with pursuit of Dunn.”

Last night, ESPN’s Buster Olney, perhaps the most credible baseball reporter on the planet, listed the Yankees second behind the Rays as a possible landing point for Dunn last night on Baseball Tonight and then again on Sports Center.

One reporter will be dead right and the other will be dead wrong. I’m not going to tell you who to believe; all I can do is let you know there are in fact conflicting reports.

Now, on to something related that we can discuss…

Calling All Yankees Fans: For the sake of debate, let’s assume Olney is right. Do you want Dunn in pinstripes? I’ve read hundreds of responses already — from two threads I started on Yankees forums, to RAB’s post on Dunnstill, I’m not entirely positive on how I feel about adding Dunn to the Yankees’ already powerful lineup.

So please, somebody convince me why the Yankees should or should not add Dunn at the deadline (in the comments below, on Facebook, on Twitter, or shoot me an email).
