Adam Done...? WHIR 100%

Postby billycent » Thu Aug 11, 2011 6:52 pm

Am I the only person who hasn't dropped him? He rides my bench everyday and on days like today where there are only a few games... I'm too scared to play him for fear of the o-4 w/4 k's. The only thing keeping me holding onto him is the thought that as soon as I drop him, something finally clicks w/him and he goes on a power surge down the stretch that benefits some other lucky owner that picks him up off waivers that hasn't suffered thru his terrible season. Get that thought out of my head and cut ties or hang onto him since I've already made it this far? After all, I already suffered thru Uggla's first half and am being handsomly rewarded... Ha! Leave a link and I got u right back.

Bro, let him go.

I drafted this dude, named my team Machine Gun Dunn, and stuck it out longer than anyone I know because... well because to drop him was to admit that I missed big time in the draft.

It's time, man. It's past time, actually. Hard to click that drop button but once you do, it feels really good and you won't have to watch him swing like a petulant child and go another 0/4. I'm thinking about forming a support group if you need help dealing, you know, emotionally. One day at a time.

I have been saying the whole season that people shouldn't drop him because he will turn it around sooner or later. But it looks like that isn't going to happen, so it's finally time to part ways.

I like how RazzBall put it. Batting .163... he's hitting half his weight!

Unless you want to have him as a #9 or #10 keeper, it's time to cut bait.

The way I approach it is, halfway though the second half of the season, players are who they are. If a guy is ranked high at this point, I stop questioning if he's for real, and accept he's a good guy to own from this point forward. Similarly, with players that have not performed all season to this point, I treat them like their ranking, and ship'em out. As you put it, Dunn is Done.

Guys I have my eye on if I do indeed drop him are... CoJack (Conner Jackson), Venable, Alex Gonzalez, Bourjos, Hafner, or maybe just a spot to stream pitching... any opinions?

If neither of those guys are out there, I would go with Bourjous or Hafner.
