Yeah, but if Dunn were a free agent last season he would have signed for more than 10mill per year. There are few teams that are going to do well in this economy and Dunn got hit by that. The Phillies have made a ton of money the past few seasons and are set to make a bunch more the next couple of years, so, Howard's pay is pretty much on last season's and Dunn is facing this market.

And, hell, if you went by fangraphs.com value, Howard was valued at 15mill last year, Dunn at 6mill. But, then again, they had Jayson Werth at 23.5mill for last season.
