I don't have a problem with Dunn, but that is all the truth.
You're probably right, but I think it all depends on expectations. When Adam came up he was supposed to become one of the elite power hitters in the game. I think most people thought he had MVP potential. That's a big part of why his lack or progression had led to such a distaste for him in Cincy. If he was in another organization that didn't need him to be "the guy" it could be different. Plus, they would know what they're getting up front. He might not be beloved, but he might not be the object of scorn like he is in Cincy.
