    No. I love Dunn, but he'd have to get to 600 HR to even be a question mark. Until then he's an obvious no.

    He's better than Kingman. Kingman didn't get on base the way Dunn did and was probably an even worse defender. Dunn's pretty unique IMO. Hard to find guys who had low BA, High OBP and lots of Slugging. I can find guys with a few seasons like that, but not an entire career.

    I'd probably go with calling him a lesser version of Harmon Killebrew, but Killebrew had a few years as a 3B and had more defensive value and hit for a little better average and wasn't quite as much of a three true outcome guy.

    Nope. Doubt he even makes the Reds HOF.

    Dunn ranks 4th on the Reds all time HR list. The Reds HOF includes Mike McCormick, Jerry Lynch, Ival Goodman and Wally Post. Dunn will join them.
