    Adam Dunn: Where have you been all my life?

    His transformation the 2nd half of the year has been nothing short of astounding. He looks like an entirely different hitter. Chambliss may have uncorked a .270 hitting run producing machine. 71 RBI's on the team now, 4 tonight
    7 straight hits.

    Way to go Adam

    Lets not forget our boy Adam hit something crazy like 321 the year he was called up.

    I'm thrilled to see the slugger grow up into a hitter. I bet he still hits 45 HRs a season even though he's not trying to do it as often anymore.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Next thing you know he will be leading the league in sacrafice flies. Now if that would ever happen...then you would know he has really turned the corner on possibly most everything he was working on, but I am really pleased to see him actually start to improve upon that average. Makes me really happy!!!!

    Most of his Sac Flies end up in the Moon Decks! LOL!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Re: Adam Dunn: Where have you been all my life?

    I heart Adam Dunn.

    Seriously, I have been critical of his run-scoring production in the past (or arguably, lack thereof) as well as his ability (or inability) to get hits that don't just leave the yard, but he is becoming a complete hitter.

    He has been more aggressive at the plate. He's been hitting to all fields, at least with more consistency. And he's also cut down on his strikeouts and he's putting the ball in play.

    He's truly a great hitter right now. I hope this becomes the norm for him.

    I think it might have a little bit to do with Kearns being gone. Might have made him get down to it and focus a little bit more. But that's just a guess. I hope to see him keep it up.

    The Astros announcers were very impressed that he reached base 9 consecutive times in this series.

    His OBP had to shoot up a little bit during this series....that's for sure.

    I think Dunn started hitting better once he switched to a lighter bat.

    Re: Adam Dunn: Where have you been all my life?

    Isn't it fun to see a current Red, reaching base 9 straight times and then getting to shake hands with Billy Hatcher?

    If you don't know what I am talking about, you probably are too young to remember the 1990 World Series.

    Nice job Dunner!

    Bingo
    About a month ago he got really fed up when he was around .221. He was frustrated at the shift, and started trying to hit everything to left. At the same time, he switched to a lighter bat and started taking a crazy amount of bp.
    Since then he's popping about .370. The turn around is not about luck, it's about Adam working his butt off. Kudos to him.
    (maybe he'll do the same for his fielding soon )

    Didn't TC say this would happen in about 100 ab's now that Austin is gone and he is working with Griffey?
