The reason this is bad for all Dunn owners (such as me :o ) is because statiscally, Petco Park, where the Padres play, is the worst hitting park in the MLB. It's been this way for the past half decade or so. Thus, his HR production will lower, which is what we Dunn owners bought him for, the 40 HRs in Great American BallPark.

And I keep sayin' it, but Dunn is immune to park factors. 450 ft bombs to right field go out no matter where you're playing.
And it would be a shame if he continued his 1.018 OPS at PETCO.

If it hasn't been announced by now it's obviously not a "Dunn deal". I think the Reds could do better than that for a 27 year old who hits 40-50 homers a year.

I agree with Snakes Gould, Petco Park will completely destroy Dunn and he will become nearly useless in fantasy baseball.

I disagree that this would destroy Dunn's value. I saw an analysis piece where homerun trajectory was analyzed, and I believe Dunn was the player who had the fewest homeruns that 'just' squeaked out of the ballpark. His power is legit no matter what the park - he might be one of the few players capable of 40+ at Petco.

GAB is a nice place to hit, but maybe it's not the fences - maybe Dunn's comfortable in front of the home crowd.

His career stats show that he hits 1 homer per 9 at bats in Petco while he jacks 1 homer per 11 at bats in Cincy. I don't know that this is going to affect him a ton.
