Dunn claims he was 'hurt'

I have heard before that Dunn is a jerk. Would not surprise me in the least but I do not follow the Cincy situation close enough to have formed an opinion on him wrt that.

My only real opinion on him is that knack for the 1 run homer or a K is really annoying. And I have still never really forgiven the guy for that horrid year he had. To this day, he is likely to get drafted by someone else because if there is anyone close in value on the board, I will bypass him and his crummy avg.

Adam Dunn 2005

runs scored-107
HR's-40
RBI-101
OPS-.927

Yeah, his average sucks in a roto league but if he's a jerk and produces like this, I'm ok with it. The Boone comments surprise me as I follow the Reds pretty close and hadn't heard about that. He jokes around a lot but I've never heard about him saying negative things about somebody on a personal level to the media.

In a roto league his avg sucks but he's still worth a ton.

I would only take him if he fell into the 7th/8th round. But I know that will never happen.

I bump Dunn down a lot because of his AVG.

Who hasn't made fun of Aaron Boone? :-D

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.

"Making fun" is not the term some Yankee fans would use. Despite that one HR he hit, he basically blew in NY and cost us the 2003 WS along with Jeffy Boy Weaver.

I vaguely recall a story from last year that the Reds management (or manager?) had had Dunn's LaZBoy removed from the locker room as unbefitting an athelete or something like that and that he was mad about it. Maybe the manager got canned or something like that? :-?

That's what makes an OBP league so good.
Code: Select all
  Dunn        League leader
.387 OBP    Giambi  .440
  40  HR      Arod        48
101  RBI     Ortiz      148
107  R        Arod      124
   4  SB       Figgins    62

Does well enough if AVG and K aren't included.

Perfectly acceptable to me.
