Not to mention, the guy is a jerk. I remember when Aaron Boone was traded. He and another meathead were on the Best Damn Sports Show ripping the guy. I'm no fan of Boone, but Dunn came off like a peice of trash.

Sounds right that he won;t swing unless the pitch is perfect. He sounds like a model team player.

He must be very good at that since he already has 59 runs.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Not sure where you're going wth that either.

His last 3 jacks have produced 8 RBI's.

That couldn't be further from the truth.

I like alot him in fantasy, but I can see the AVG arguments.

However,
- He is one of the worst defensive outfielders in the game.
- He repeatedly falls asleep on the base paths.
- He can't hit a sacrifice fly to save his life
- He's a jerk

I see Adam Dunn as a perfect example of why a 5x5 scoring system is simply inadequate. Keep the traditional 5 - BA, HR, RBI, R, SB - and add OBP & SLG or OPS. Now all those walks, 2Bs, and 3Bs have some value and the low BA still hurts.

If Adam Dunn ends up in the 50 solo-HR club, is that really his fault? If every batter in a lineup were Adam Dunn, what would the probability be that he hits a solo HR, 2-R HR, 3-R HR, or a GS? I'm guessing that he'd hit multi-R homers more than most hitters in a similar analysis. Adam Dunn is a guy I'd take in my lineup any time.

To me, Dunn has some maturity issues. Griffey is the wrong guy to mentor him. I think if you put Dunn on a team with classy veterans *coughAstroscough*, he will act completely different.

This might be true, but in terms of pure offensive production, however, there are few players better than Adam Dunn. He's 5 times more valuable in real life than he is in fantasy.
