Raw power, I would think it might be difficult to determine who had more out of Wily Mo and Adam Dunn. Now, Dunn is far more advanced as a hitter. But Wily Mo is a Batting Practice draw with his 500+ foot blasts.
Point taken. Admittedly, I haven't been able to see Reds' games on a day-to-day basis since about last May (when I graduated from Miami), so I haven't seen as much of Wily Mo Pena as I would have liked (all that I have read about him intrigues me). Since the Reds aren't on ESPN all that often, I've probably only seen the guy a few times (and most of those times were during Spring Training). I have seen a lot of Dunn to be able to understand your comparison in raw power between he and WMP. Chase Utley does have good power, and has hit some shots, but it does definitely sound like WMP exceeds him in that category (more so than I originally gave him credit for).
