Dunn reverting back to old form

Postby Wilma_J » Mon May 24, 2004 10:36 pm

His hot start fooled us, but now his average is falling back to where it will be for the remainder of the season: around .230

What is up with this guy?!?! :-t

His RBI and power numbers still make him an outstanding fantasy option, regardless of his BA. (I forsee .260-.280, with about a thousand strikeouts :-D )

I feel that this is merely a slump, like all normal fantasy players have, and he will heat up again before long.

The guy has talent blowing out of his ears, I think he started patient, struck out a couple of times, got frustrated, and went back to old ways. :-o

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

He did the same thing last year and never bounced back....so I must admit that I am somewhat worried. Not as a fantasy owner, but as a Reds fan. Now it's just a matter of how much more mature of a hitter is he this year as opposed to last year. I personally think, like Liberty said, he will bounce back. He was definitely playing over his head during the first few weeks, but he also isn't a .220 hitter either.

If you can still get something good for him, I would suggest taking it....but if you can't, don't sell him for trash....he could bounce back in a big way.

Of course he is reverting back to being a .210 hitter -- I traded for him 2 weeks ago. I should have warned everyone. ;-)

What? 8-o

If you have a team that hit's .290 and change out one of the hitters for Dunn's .260, then it drops your entire team's batting average by around 3-4 points. That can, and will cost you in a roto league.

Dunn is like Glaus has always been, lots of pop, but an absolute average killer. Difference is when Glaus did it, 3B was shallow so he did have some value. If Dunn hits .260, his value is very minimal even with 40 homers and 100 rbi. Not waiver wire material, but not a hot commodity either.

I saw the Reds scored 7 runs and thought maybe Dunn did something....yeah, 0-3 and a K...this guy is an oaf. Why did I not take Casey or Overbay rather than this Shrek. Dammit!

man people love to jump to conclusions. of course he was hot, did you or anyone else honestly expect him to still be hitting .350? I think he will be around .275 this year, he is still hitting better then he was last year as this rate. he was bound to cool off, also it doesn't help when your coach bats you 6th w/ no protection.

people really need to stop saying "oh, look i told you, look what he has done after a month" ...

though with that in mind the people everyone that didn't agree now say "see, he has struggled for 3 weeks..."

it's pretty childish and doesn't help produce any quality thoughts on the matter.

His K/BB rate is better and he is doing much better then last year. Sometimes I wonder where you people get your stats. I always hear "he got off to a great start last year", um how? He hit hr's sure he always does that though, but only hit for .253 the first month. Doesn't seem like that great of a start compared to over .320 this 1st month.
