Luckily my league is OBP, but seriously the only HR he knows how to hit is a solo shot.

I love the party analogy. :)

You know what? Last year Dunn hit 20 homers with the bases empty. He hit 20 homers with runners on. That's better than average. He hit .249 with the bases empty. He hit .248 with RISP. That's pretty telling, eh?

He's not off to a great RISP start this year, but c'mon people. It's chance.

Don't make me dig up the old Dunn thread... :-D

I play in one league that counts OPS - like Dunn in that one.

Honestly, he is frustrating, but he walks so much his average does not impact your team as much as you might think.

In the end, I keep picking him up because I think that if he can make some adjustments, he could hit in the .275-280 range, and if he ever gets there, he will post monstrous numbers. In the meantime, .240 100 40 100 isn't that bad at all.

I think it's just the mental anguish of those 0 for 4's - somehow he's always available in drafts where lesser producers are already taken.

Next year, if he falls to me at a point where he's a value pick, I'll take him again.

I am sticking with my prediction. You claimed he will finish the year at .240, I don't think he will. Basically you're up right now because you said .240 and I said .260, but I still believe he will pull it out. I think runners are not geting on when he does hit the HR though, and that hurt his overall numbers.

You obviously didn't "get" his analogy, which was quite clever I might add.

this thread is an exact copy of the "What to do with Adam Dunn" thread from 2005, 2004 and 2003 ....

the complaints are all the same

* His BA sucks
* His only hits solo HR
* His RBI Production is pathetic

and then there are always the guys the claim ..

* His is starting to turn it around
* His BB's don't hurt you
* His BA will end up around .250-.260
* That team scores so many runs, he can't help but get more RBI's.
* He steals bases, what 1B steals bases?


But it never changes.
It kind of cracks me up, all of the people with "hope" for Adam Dunn.

Every year, its the same thing.. :-D :-D
