    Dunn needs a day off!!!!!

    I might be wrong but I think he has played everygame so far and if I am wrong he still needs a day off.He looks very tired out there and does'nt look very comfortable at all at the plate.He does'nt look very balanced at the plate and when a player looks like that then they can't hit the ball very good and that makes them start to try to hard at the plate and panic and thats what Dunn is doing now.Narron needs to sit him a day before he waits to long then Dunn will be in a worst slump than he is now.

    Arroyo is pitching tomorrow so I don't look for many runs being scored from the Nationals(cross fingers) and the Reds always finds ways to score runs so I don't see them needing Dunn tomorrow.He can pinch hit for us tomorrow if we need it!!!!

    I had the same thought while watching the game tonight. A day off tomorrow coupled with the off-day on Thursday might do Dunn a world of good. Have him fresh for when the team comes back to Cincinnati for the weekend where the surroundings, from a hitting perspective, are a bit more friendly. Would also give us a chance to see Ross play should Dunn sit. I think it's a good idea.

    I agree that he needs a day off, but man, I'd love to see him hit against Ramon Ortiz. Wish he would have gotten today off.

    Re: Dunn needs a day off!!!!!

    Yeah your right I forgot about the day off on thursday!!! Two days off would help him out alot for the up coming series at home.I would like to see what Ross brings to the table and tomorrows game would be the perfect opurtunity.

    Is it a day game or night game?? I don't think its going to be on tv here in WV and I would like to try and find it on the radio.

    Day off??? He looks tired???

    Does he have another job I don't know about? Is 5-6 hours a day too much?

    Exactly. Play him 162 games a year unless slightly injured.

    I think we're talking about mental exhaustion here rather than physical. Sometimes guys just need a day off to clear their heads and get back on track. Right now he just looks a bit off kilter and he may be pressing with Junior out of the lineup. I'm not usually a guy who likes to see the regulars sit, but I think that in this case it's defensible. He was flailing at pitches tonight and I think it might be a good time for him to watch a game.

    Krono, you could use a day off yourself, I'm just not seeing the quality posts I saw to start the season.

    6 hours on a ball field is much, much different than 10 hours in an office or factory. Ask any of the middle aged men who moan after one softball game on the weekend.

    Yeah, I'm note sure the K-Man will ever be able to post with smilies in scoring position.

    Oh lord. The work ethic argument.

    If it means pacing Dunn properly, I'd give him TWO days off and a skid of corn dogs!
