As for bats, according to MLB Trade Rumors, they are in "serious talks" with Adam Dunn. Does he fit what Detroit needs? Let's see...
- Left handed? check
- Power hitter? check
- Has a pulse? check
UPDATE- Just ran across this list of the Top 50 Free Agents from MLB Trade Rumors, and they have Benoit rated 37th and Dunn rated 5th, ahead of guys like Victor Martinez and Derek Jeter.
