Yes. Health is good. There are some players that are chronically injured and miss large chunks of time every year. Then there are guys that fight through the injuries and play with pain. Dunn played most of last year with a very painful knee that certainly affected both his hitting and defensive play. He never complained about it, even when the haters were calling him lazy and slow.
There will always be haters that want to complain and whine about the team's best player. They just have a need to blame someone for the team's losing ways. "Sure, Dunn hits 40 homers, scores 100 runs and gets 100 RBIs every year -- but they all came after the game was over so they don't really count."
Fortunately most Redszoners are more intelligent than the morons that post on the other major Reds message boards. I don't know how anyone can even read the drivel on those forums without being totally disgusted after 5 minutes.
