    Don't look now: Adam Dunn on pace for 60 HR

    Time for some fun with numbers.

    With 27 games played, Adam Dunn has 10 home runs, which would put him on pace to hit 59.88 home runs for the season.

    This is including a streak of nearly 40 ABs without a homer this past week.

    Odds on Adam being the first Red ever to reach 60?

    Both Dunn and E2 hit soft homers today.

    Ship 'em out.

    Dunn would be the first player in MLB history to hit more than 60 home runs and have less than 100 rbi.

    EdwinE is the star right now......if the Reds had been in more blow-outs, Adam's occassional solo homeruns would have been a lot more meaningless.

    Give me RBI's game in and game out...homeruns are WAY-WAY overrated.....lots of fun to watch, but one 3 run double does a lot more damage than a solo HR....no kidding

    I think the Reds have A LOT of stars right now, including Adam Dunn. AD has been big in this run, if for nothing else, the way he works pitchers. The Reds are wearing guys down and knocking them out early. Dunn and his 8+ pitch at bats help that cause.

    There is no denying that Edwin is himself turning into a star. He is another guy that seems to wait for his pitch. And he looks so confident. I'm impressed.

    As for Dunn reaching 60 bombs, I don't want to make any predictions. I'll take 35 HR if the Reds finish September with today's winning percentage. Anyone else want to sign up for 114 wins?

    Perhaps lost in all this is the fact that Dunn leads the NL in runs scored with 27. Gotta get on in order to get in.

    On pace for 150 walks and 198 strikeouts. Jonny Gomes and Brad Wilkerson are on pace to strikeout 200 times at last check.

    Another interesting fact: In 2001, Jim Thome finished with 185 strikeouts in 526 atbats(644 PA). That's a rate of a K/3.48 PA. In Dunn's 2004 record K season, he struckout 195 times in 568 atbats and 681 PA, for a rate of 3.49. Thome would have struckout nearly 200 times had he went to the plate as much as Dunn did in 2004.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Hard to hit a three-run double if no one's on base.

    I believe the Reds lead the NL in OBP also.

    Jim Edmonds could do it.

    He'd hit the three run double with nobody on and still have time to make a diving catch on his own hit.
