Of course. He has a better OBP than Sean Casey 8-o

On a related note, 28 RBI's seems a little low for a guy with 12 jacks. I owned Dunn last year (it sucked by mid-May) and I remember that the vast majority of his jacks were solo shots. Is that still the case?

Exactly. His first 5 this season were and I think 2 or 3 since as well.
Just unlucky I guess although with the amount of walks he has obviously pitchers don't take many chances with him when other guys are on base.

I remember Raffy in 2002 had almost 20 HR's in a row for the Rangers at one point in the season and they were all solo shots. Batting after A-Rod as well 8-o

i am a huge reds fan and i think dunn is having the typical adam dunn season. he starts off super hot hitting a lot of homeruns with a high average then everything slows down. his average drops and he stops hitting home runs. i bet he'll end up 240-250 with 30-40 homers and 80 rbis

Can you say Dave Kingman? Dunn can run better than King Kong, but his average and home run totals are similar. :-[

That's a little pre-mature. Dunn is only 25 and still has a few years to get it together. Kingman had no plate discipline. Most players gel around 27 so give him time.

If he is still flailing away at 29 call him: Kingman, Deer or Burnitz but not yet. :-o
