Lefebvre - what a smart man. While Adam Dunn has had a terrific career up to this point, I still don't think he has reach his fullest potential just yet. Sadly, Lefebvre slowed Dunn's progress down with his stupidity. If not for him messing with Dunn, we would probably be looking at a .310/.470/.600+ type of player right now, which would possibily make him the best player in the game.
Q: Adam Dunn appears to be playing Home Run Derby every at-bat. Aren't there three bases out there for a reason? — Bill, Cincinnati
A: When Dunn first came up, he hit the ball to all fields and for an average. Then former hitting coach Jim Lefebvre decided the big guy should pull everything and changed his stance and approach. Dunn still rues the day and doesn't say nice things about J.L. And he hasn't been able to turn it back around. As for three bases, Dunn manages to find them all as he tours the bases on his home runs or runs around them after one of his many walks.
