Rosenthal: Dunn a good fit for Red Sox

Here's a link to the article itself.  The excerpt about Dunn:

The Red Sox did not consider signing Barry Bonds even when they were unsure of David Ortiz's prognosis, and will not consider signing Bonds even if Ortiz is sidelined long-term. One name to remember if Ortiz's wrist problem lingers: Adam Dunn. The Red Sox could explore a trade for the Reds' slugger if the price were right. Dunn, a left-handed hitter like Ortiz, is a free agent at the end of the season. By declining to re-sign him, the Red Sox could collect two draft picks in return . . .

An interesting situation, because Dunn makes sense for Boston, Theo Epstein has no problem pulling the trigger on big deals during the season, and they wouldn't be scared off by the salary.  Ken Rosenthal is also one of the more reliable sources when it comes to trade rumors.  I'd like to see what RR thinks about this.  Questions to consider:

1.  Would Bob/Walt pull the trigger on a deal for Dunn if the Reds fall far enough out of contention?

2.  Who would we ask for back from the Red Sox?  Who would they be willing to give us?
