Adam Dunn. What the heck?

Postby hooligan1 » Sat May 28, 2011 7:17 pm

Guys, I don't know how much more of him I can take. He is KILLING me in every cat. I now hate him forever. I just missed out on picking up Ortiz and there's not much else to choose from on the wire, but practically anything is better that Dunn.... Am I jumping ship too early or is this a justifiable mercy killing? I'd love any and all opinions. WHIR......

How on earth was Ortiz still avail? Haha.

Also, I don't draft Dunn, ever. For reasons like this. He will provide some pop by the end of the season, but that's about it.

Some pop? The guy has hit 38 to 40 HR's the last seven seasons. Usually has a superb OBP and usually drives in approximitely 100 runs. i understand that he is off to a really slow start but to say he has some pop and that's it is undermining him.

I honestly think he is slow to adjusting to a new league while at the same time experiencing the world of the DH. I wouldn't let go of him and think he eventually figures it out and starts hitting the ball out of the park.

He's similar to Carlos Pena. The potential is there, but he hasn't been doing so hot until the past 2 or so weeks.
