    Adam Dunn

    I've given the guy a lot of grief about hitting with runners on..hitting in the clutch...bad defense....strikeouts...yadda yadda yadda. Not in dislike, just in frustration.

    He's on pace for 53 homers and 106 RBIs..



    He gets no more grief from me. The 2 hole seems to be working.

    He will rule the world in strikeouts....it's just the way it is. He does so much more than that, though.

    It's not the 2 hole. It's hitting in front of Griffey...

    Dunn needs good pitches to hit more than most players.

    Re: Adam Dunn

    In close and late situations (defined as 7th inning or later either ahead by one run, tied, or with the potential tying run at least on deck), Adam Dunn has the following line in 45 PA (yes, small sample):

    BA - .324
    OBP - .457
    SLG - .595
    OPS - 1.052

    Any AB in these situations, regardless of baserunners, is just as important, if not moreso, than random RISP ABs. Hopefully, this lack of clutch can be put to bed here on the forum.

    Yep, It would work with Dunn 3 and JR 4th as well.

    What's great about the two hole is that he gets more AB's.

    In one of Narron's whimsical "bat Dunn seventh" lineups, last night doesn't happen.

    precisely.

    It's all about who's going to get that 5th at bat and I want that to be Adam Dunn.

    I can't believe everyone is so excited. Dunn got lucky. That ball carried 320 down the line, tops. If it had been his to center it would have been an out.

    Actually, if it was hit to Centre, it would have been a single. The OF's were playing nearly to the wall in an attempt to cut off a 3 run double.

    Hey now! None of that British "-re" stuff around here! And no adding silent "u"'s to words like "color" or "rumor", either!

    Yep, Dunns HR killed that rally dead last night. The rally would have continued if he got a single. But nooooooo, he had to be selfish and hit a home run to end a perfectly good rally.

    I don't know if you were being serious here or not, but I'll take lucky 26 times in the first half of the season!
