Re: Reasons for Adam Dunn to hit 2nd
I believe there is growing support for Dunn getting a shot in the 2 hole for the reasons you mentioned.
The spillover benefit is it will help to cut to the meat of what Dunn is and will become. Is he a budding McGwire, Reggie Jackson, Thome, Killebrew, McCovey or is he Bo Jackson, Craig Wilson, Pat Burrell, Rob Deer?
No doubt he will be challenged more often than he has been if he has Casey, Griffey and a producing Kearns/Pena behind him. I say let's find out. End all the speculation. If he can be productive from the 2 hole I may even become an Adam Dunn fan.
