Re: People on Mets Board saying really dumb things about Adam Dunn

To read some of these posts you'd think Dunn was a leadoff hitter who hits a ton of home runs. But what he really is is a clean-up type power hitter who hits for a low average, and an even lower average when it counts -- w/RISP. Until he starts driving in more runs he'll never be fully accepted by Reds fans IMO.
with him leading off innings and hitting with no one on base, it's hard to drive in runs. average means nothing.
