Go for Richie Sexson if you need homers at first. He's basically the same player without as much hype surrounding him.

I think he'll probably finish with 40-50 homers, but also probably with a batting average around .250 or .260. He will give you lots of homers, but your batting average will likely take quite a hit if you have him.

His homers will slow down, but he'll bring his average up, in my opinion
My guess at his final numbers
.260 45 HRs 105 RBIs 6 billion ks

Yes it is true that Dunn K's alot but other players have a far worse percentage of walks to K's. A good case in point is A-Rod this year, but I don't hear people mentioning his strikeout ratio everytime his name is brought up. The only way Adam Dunn is Dave Kingman is if Dave Kingman walked 130 times and stole 20 bases!

Dunn struckout 42 times more than he walked last year witch is very comprable to many big time fantasy players.

Either you never saw Kingman, or you dont know the numbers between the two. The only comparision is both were very tall, with long swings. Kingman was a out machine, career 302 oba. Dunn, at age 23, is already has a career 391 oba. Thats not even in the same ballpark. Its rare for such a young player to flirt with a 400 oba. So Dunn wont have a big average, neither did Reggie, or Sosa, or Mac, and they did ok.

Iv'e been checking up on some players' stats and came up across Sammy Sosa's numbers...

In Sammy's first full season, where he played 153 games and had 532 AB's,he had a .233AVE, 15HR's, had 33WALKS and STRUCK OUT 150 times!!

By comparison, in Dunn's first full season last year he played in 155 games and 535 AB's, he had 26HR's, 128WALKS, and whiffed 170 times with a .249AVE.

B-)
