Dunn. Love Him or Hate Him?

Postby Eagle Baseball » Thu Feb 23, 2006 3:45 pm

5X5
H2H

Adam Dunn as a 3td or 4th round pick.

Do you love his HR, R and RBI
or
Do you hate how his AVE drags down your team AVE?

Love the HR but I can't have him on my roto team unless I have a high BA guy or 2 to make up for him. I like him a lot more in H2H.

Hate him in head to head. Too inconsistent.

In H2H he's a monster. He finished in the top 15 overall bats last year in my league.

his BA isnt a killer because he walks so much he isnt posting that AVG over a large number of ABs. 543 ABS last season in a full 160 games isnt going to kill you, whereas a guy like reyes racking up 650+ Abs with his 270 avg can hurt you just as bad.


that said i HATE DUNN.

Not taking him in the 3rd or 4th round, but I love the fact that he has proven he DOES have value (while Austin Kearns has yet to prove he can do diddly squat for any meaningful length of time).

I love the 45 homeruns he'll hit next season.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I absolutely LOVE Adam Dunn. He is in my dynasty league as a 2nd rounder (16 teams) and I was glad to get him. We also count walks so Dunn is gold.

.250 is a terrible average, but his other numbers are first round quality around the board. He is a killer in H2H, not as good in roto but could be paired up with someone like M.Young or Vlad to compensate fro the low average.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
