I'm not sure if this particular subject has been talked about in other threads. I didn't feel like searching the other 983 topics about Adam Dunn in order to find out. So...here it is:

Most HR's 2004-2008
1. Adam Dunn 195
2. Alex Rodriguez 194
3. David Ortiz 191
4. Albert Pujols 188


Most walks 2004-2008
1. Adam Dunn 511
2. Todd Helton 501
3. Bobby Abreu 496
4. Barry Bonds 488


I bet you would've NEVER guessed that Dunn was at the top of either of those lists, let alone both of them.

But where is he on the RBI list or even the % of runners on base driven in?

Actually, I'm not too terribly surprised, although if I just had to guess I would have guessed ARod had more home runs than Dunn. Cool stuff anyway.

Some more fun with Dunn

From 2004-2007

He has 160 more K's than the next guy (Jason Bay)
He is 12th in Total Bases
He is 7th in runs scored
He is 37th in hits (higher than I thought)
He is 3rd in games played (which helps these numbers)

In other words, he failed to make the top ten in rbi's. :p: :D ;)

Very impressive. But this mostly shows that among the elite power hitters, Dunn has been the most healthy over that time. Still, it also means that he is an elite power hitter, if there was any doubt.

I love Adam Dunn. Did you see that he just hit another grand slam? This time off noted Reds Killer Roy Oswalt..

RBI's are reliant on others getting on base ahead of you. I agree Dunn is not in the elite class of driving in runs but neither is he to be considered lacking. His production numbers on a team that lives by the home run are clearly above 3/4 of league. I wish the reds had a true leadoff, #2, and this year #3 hitter ahead of him. Put Adam in Hamilton's spot in the order and i think the tune of unclutch disappears. Replace Howard with Dunner in Philly and I would guess a few MVP votes would change. Reds' fans either love or hate him but i say all will miss him. I hope he burns the reds if they are short sighted enough to let him go, and I have been a reds fan for 30 years. I will continue to be a fan but will follow Dunn just like i did Eric Davis, Tony Perez, Frank Robinson, and other great reds we let go because they didn't meet all of our unattainable expectations.

I just keep thinking if he winds up with 45-50 homers somehow the Reds will find a way to keep him. They aren't stupid... or are they?

A decent manager would make Dunn an All-Star and he'd have about 20 more RBI's from the 3rd or 4th spot. Except with CPatt ahead of him. Must keep Dunn. Must.
