Adam Dunn.... exactly 40 HR's yet again!!!

Postby NZ Eff » Sun Oct 05, 2008 5:35 pm

With his 40th HR for the season against the Rockies on September 27th, Adam Dunn has now gone four straight season with exactly 40 HR's. Not at least 40 but exactly 40 HR's 8-o

Freaky.

he must try really hard to get to 40, then when he gets to 40 he doesn't give a crap about what he does from then on ;-7

he gets the job done. not only a big time power hitter, but he also draws walks to get on base.
however Jays GM Ricciardi wouldnt want him. instead Ricciardi would rather go with bums like Wilkerson, Stewart, Mench, ect.
Jays highest OBP player- Overbay at .358 OBP. Dunn had .386 OBP.
Jays highest SLG player- Wells at .496 SLG. Dunn had .513 SLG.
Jays highest OPS player- Wells at .840 OPS. Dunn had .898 OPS.
Jays highest HR player- Wells with 20 HR. Dunn doubled that with his 40.
but ofcorse Dunn isnt the type of player the Jays want.
how Ricciardi still has a job is a mystery to me. not only with his talk about Dunn, but the moves he has made in his career as Jays GM.

Dunn will never be a good AVG hitter, but he gets er done everywhere else and is an offensive machine.
he should get himself a nice fat contract this winter.

Haven't you heard? He doesn't like baseball!

However, I would have signed Bonds for nothing instead of trading for Dunn, myself.

Who? mweir or Adam Dunn? ;-7


Maybe we should randomly rant about Tornoto's situation in Video Games or the Football Cafe and see if mweir replies. O:-) }:-)

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