    When the team is 30-43, EVERYONE on the team can do better, from Dunn down to Weber. You play to win, not to have good numbers. I am quite sure Dunn is not satisfied with his season, despite all of his good numbers.

    KEarns was 220 when he signed. He was 18 years old then. He will never return to that weight. I'd be happy with a FIT 235.

    They used to be JR bashing threads, then Casey, when Dunn is gone they will be Pena ones.

    It's crazy, there are about 1000 things wrong with this team and organization. Adam Dunn has been, and continues to be, one of the few bright spots despite his misusage by the team.

    Expectations will do this. We all know he can play better. That's all.

    And what's great is, if he can't play better, it doesn't matter; he's great right now.

    So it's win-win! Woo-hoo!

    Re: Kearns' Weight

    255 would be a good weight for Kearns if he was trying to win a spot on the Bengals roster, but that sounds like at least 15-20 pounds more than he should be as a baseball player.

    Re: Kearns' Weight

    Does the reds not posess one single person from past years who can talk some work ethic into these young guys? I say send Bench in to rip PS2's out of the walls and lead them to a regiment.

    Dont get me wrong...im not a Dunn basher but I believe he isnt putting his all and is going based on his natural ability rather than by learning ala Tony Gwynn. Kearns has been sounding like everything is owed to him and as much as I like him as a ball player from 2003, I want to see that guy again...2005 Kearns is unbecoming.

    We need leadership...thats all there is to it to me.

    Pena is also listed at 6-3, 245. And Dunn: 6-6, 275.
    Hey as I listed while starting this thread, the Reds (ie O'Brien) said that he was 255 when they sent him down. That's where the number came from and it's their job to know what their players weigh at all times. The number did not come from ST. You better believe I'd be putting him on the scale...

    That may be but he was listed at 220 lbs just three years ago when he was 22.

    Re: Kearns' Weight

    HE HASNT? really, so you think dunn is a 240 hitter. CRAP, he is way better than a 240 hitter. he should be hittin 280 at least. ive seen him play since he was in dayton and he is no 240 hitter. his bat speed is down imo. you see how many fastballs that got thrown right by him just in last nights game
    Please refer to the 1000 other threads on this topic. Learn how many total bases Dunn has accumulated, and how many outs he has made. Then if you'd still like to discuss his batting average, we can talk.

    Dunn needs to do a better job with runner on base.There is no way F. Lopez should have more RBI than A.Dunn.
