My Crazy Wishful Thinking

Postby Zito is God » Thu Dec 16, 2004 9:00 pm

Ever sinse I heard the Adam Dunn to cleveland trade rumor I have been as hyper as that road runner thing. Are ANY TALKS AT ALL going on about this deal?

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

Lots of talk from plenty of teams about getting Dunn, nothing remotely serious though. The Reds seem pretty content, now they just have to figure out if Kearns or Freel will play 3B.

Unless they are nuts they aren't going to trade Adam Dunn. He is another Thome type player in the making..

The thing that concerns me about Dunn, in fantasy and real baseball terms, is his low average.

While I agree that he could be another Thome, he could also be another Greg Vaughn. The high Ks, over the long haul could do him in. I would like to see him walk a lot more. Then I’d have much more confidence in him.

Right now, it’s a coin-toss.

He was sixth in the majors last year in walks with 108. I think he definitely could stand to cut down the K's, but the BB totals aren't too bad.

I do not remember Thome being the King of the Solo HR though?

Well that's because he had guys in front of him that could get on base. :-D
