Cubs leader for Dunn?

Adam Dunn Matt Sosnick isn't Adam Dunn's agent, but that's not stopping him from making predictions about where the Big Donkey may land.

"I would say [Dunn] is probably going to the Cubs, and he'll probably get three years and $40 million," Sosnick told the Chicago Tribune .

It's not much of a stretch, Dunn has openly spoken of his love for Wrigley Field.

"[Wrigley Field's] obviously one of my favorite parks to hit in," Dunn told the Chicago Sun-Times in August . "I've always really enjoyed playing there. The atmosphere is great there for any player. The fans are always hard on the other team, which makes it fun."

As a frequent visitor with the Reds, and as a less-frequent visitor the last two years with the Nationals, Dunn has hit .282/.410/.651 with 25 home runs in 293 career plate appearances at Wrigley Field.

Earlier this month, Carlos Zambrano said Dunn told him he wants to join the Cubs.

"I want that guy," Zambrano told MLB.com . "He wants to play for us, not only this year, but two years ago. He told me he wants to play at Wrigley Field badly."

Two years ago, the Cubs had under contract through 2010. Now, after the 2010 season, the Cubs have an opening at first base and Dunn is a first baseman (he was a left fielder back then).

Cubs leader for Dunn?

Good Carlos we care what you think. How about we trade Zambrano and his crazy piece of garbage ass and clear room for Dunn. Shut up Zambrano we don't care what you think or say. As for Dunn. The Cubs won't be relevant even if they get him. They still have that 18 million dollar a year hole in left field. That Fukudome in Right who sucks just as bad. They really have nothing going for them. Other than they are the Cubs and everyone goes to the games no matter how bad they are. Go get Dunn, then go get someone to get on base to drive em in. Yeah lets try to get a guy that can freaking steal a base. Swear to god the Cubs are dead set against stealing bases. Good Luck Quade you are going to need it. I am a hardcore Cubs fan but I see no future in this team. I really don't. So many bad investments have ruined them. Soriano is number one. I don't blame them for getting him he was the best guy out there at the time. But you get him then make him your lead off hitter and he doesn't even steal anymore I mean come on he stole 40 bases. STEAL BASES!!!! Easy concept. Manufacture some runs for god sakes. You can't have a ton of guys that strike out and hit a home run everyonce in a while. They don't help if no one is on base.
