He is streaky, yes, but please fill me in on how you plan on replacing 100 runs, 100 RBI, 40 HR's, and a .900 OPS?
It's not Dunn's fault that Dusty is miserable at constructing lineups. Put Dunn at the top of the order and you will realize how valuable he is to this team.
Never has a guy done so much and gotten so little love for it than Adam Dunn.
Homer, where would this team be without his 16 Homers 41 RBI, 56 BB, and 36 runs...
I mean look at his runs... The guys hitting behind him have been pathetic... Save for Votto... But the real culprit has been Edwin!
