Is Adam Dunn a threat on the bases? He's stolen four. He use to steal bases in the minors. He has lost weight. Does that mean he's 40-20 or 40-15 potential?

His stated goal this season was 77. So far he's 4-4 (one coming on a double steal with Freel). Make up your own minds using that info. (For the record, he's on pace for 46)

Well, 4 in 13 games, I'd say he's a good bet to hit the 50-50 mark. ;)

Running donkey: Before Dunn was scratched, there was talk about his being 3-for-3 in stolen bases -- including a swipe in the fourth inning of Saturday's game. Dunn has joked since spring that his goal was to swipe 77 bases this season.

"It's just a number I came up with in my head," Dunn said.

"Seventy seven? Maybe 7-for-7," right fielder Ken Griffey Jr. joked. "Don't do that. Start that next year, and you'll be a leadoff hitter. A 6-7, 265-pound leadoff hitter. They'll expect him to slap the ball around, get on base and run."

Last year, Dunn stole seven without being caught. His career high was 19 steals in 2002.

"I can't get thrown out," Dunn joked. "I go when I know I can make it."

"If he steals another one, we'll definitely put it on the big screen at home. It'll be his body on a donkey," said Griffey in a reference to Dunn's "Big Donkey" nickname.

Dunn can steal bases... look at his rookie year. Hes not going to take 50 but 20 is probable

Dunner will get 20 this year. I think many pitchers dont pay attention to a guy named the big donkey when he is on first and Dunner is just smart enought to take the base when he knows he can.

Dunn as a leadoff hitter, Jr.? Don't be silly. No manager would be that nuts!.......

MississippiRed used to be critical of people who do that, but now he sees how much fun it can be. Go Adam!
