He could be good if he didn't strike out so much.

This just after someone (can't remember his name) told me on the radio during a game that this team is better with Hopper in the lineup instead of the latest player of the week. Hmmmm. :devil:

Congrats to AD. Hope there are many more... as a REDS player!

Not that I totally agree with that someone on that issue, but one week is a small sample size :evil:

Yep... and three years in a row averaging 40 HR, 100 RBI, 100 R, and 100 BB is a LARGE sample size.

Congrats to Dunn.

I wish Narron would take advantage of Dunn's ability to get on base and bat him 2nd all the time. He'd score 120 runs and still get 90 RBI's. Then they could put someone who's better at driving in runs behind him and not put a guy who hits .219 WISP in a position to fail.

As has been pointed out numerous times, Dunn is a monster in the #2 hole.

Kudos to Adam. He had a great week and he is deserving of this award.

We have to also note that the Reds only won 2 games in Adam Dunn's stellar week. This supports the fans who say he's not a difference maker or that he's not a clutch player. Stats obviously don't win games.

Homeruns are also an overrated stat....the Reds hit 9 of them in the Rangers series and lost 2 of three

Every stat is overrated when you lose. Except wins.

Congrats Adam.

A Trade of Scott Hatteberg (sorry VP) would give Narron no choice but to put Dunn where he belongs.

No, what it supports is how pitifully the rest of the team perfomed around him last week.

Adam Dunn has no control over that.

My ideal scenario: We keep Dunn, bring up Votto, and give Griff the chance to play for a contending ball club while getting a package of prospects in return.

Yep, Votto at 1st, a player who might be there the next time this team is in the playoffs :D

During AD's Player-of-the-Week he had 26 PA. They broke down like this:



TYPE NUMBER TYPE PCNT
LD-RF 5 LD 35%
LD-CF 1 GB 18%
GB-3B 1 FB 35%
GB-2B 1 PF 12%
GB-1B 1 100%
FB-RF 2 Direction
FB-RC 3 RF 53%
FB-LF 1 RC 18%
PF-3B 1 CF 6%
PF-CATC 1 LC 0%
BB 2 LF 18%
K-L 5 CTCHR 6%
K-S 2 100%

26

P/PA 3.96
P/PABIP 3.12
P/PAKBB 5.56


1) Adam only hit 3 balls on the ground during the week. (18% of BIP)
2) Dunn pulled the ball a lot. (71% of BIP went to the right side of second base.
3) His P/PA for the year is 4.2. He saw about 1/4 less pitch per plate appearance during the week. (3.96) For BIP he only saw 3.12 P/PA.
4) Small sample size alert.

Brendan Harris has a 1.030 for the month of June, while batting .309 vs LH and .330 vs. RH's for the year.

Maybe Krivsky can get a pile of cash for Dunn, too.

The 9 homeruns hit by the Reds during the Rangers series had nothing to do with them droping two of three... the pitching did.

The main problem is... you aint lookin' at the right stats.

Well of course he was player of the week.

After all, I was at two of the games this week. :p: :mooner:

You're right. Runs do.

Specifically, scoring more runs than your opponent.

Dunn's stellar week went a long way towards making that possible. Unfortunately, the pitching staff failed to hold up their end of the bargain.

When he's dealt the acquiring team might call and offer season tickets :D

In the Baseball Prospectus' book 'Baseball Between the Numbers' they studied the the relationship between manager and player performance. Their conclusion was that there is no connection between change in batter performance and the manager among the 456 managers studied.

Unless, of course, you're Josh Hamilton and you don't have a chance to bat cause your manager pinch hit Juan Castro for you.
