Re: Dunn Fallows the Money Train and Goes to Bad Draw
It is December, there are many more days until the season starts. Too many variables right now for ANY Conference team to be scrutinized about folding, picking up, switching players, etc. The folding of DS shook up the entire Conference from top to bottom. The bottom hasn't felt it yet, but it is starting to trickle down slowly and will keep going until the season starts and most likely beyond that. One thing that is in the back of my mind as I'm sure it is in many other sponsors and coaches, what happens if Cali and west coast states start to shut down again and restrict travel? There are a bunch of players over there playing on various teams.
Did Ben Dunn chase the dollar? Only he and the teams who offered him a contract really know the true answer to that. Maybe he went to where he thought he had the best opportunity to win a MWS out of all the offers and they just happened to be paying the most. Just because some people don't think the team he chose has a better chance to win doesn't mean everyone thinks like that. To each their own in that matter. And if he did chase the $, isn't that his prerogative and a choice that he made for himself and not the entire softball community.
Good luck to Ben Dunn and every other player in the Conference and the rest of the softball world this year. Hopefully we get to enjoy a somewhat normal season this year.
