But for anyone to try and make him shoulder the reason for this team's collapse in the last 2 months, without looking at this team as a whole, is being just as dishonest.I agree, pointing selectively to Dunn while turning a blind eye to the infield errors that contributed all season to the pitching failures, and the outright blowing of leads and allowing additional runs by bad starters and bad bullpen pitchers doesn't seem appropriate. Plus Narron and his coaching staff made several questionable decisions that contributed to the overall outcome to date. I am not a Dunn fan, never have been, but the Reds woes go way deeper than rather Dunn hits or not.
Who is doing this? It seems like you guys are making good arguments, but with whom are you arguing? I still have not seen a poster state: "Adam Dunn is the sole problem with this team." There are plenty of posts about the infield errors, pitching failures and blowing of leads. Not to mention (although I'm mentioning it) how many times Narron has been blamed. All of the problems of this team are being discussed and Adam Dunn's performance at the end of the season is one of them. Personally, I think he'll come back next year and be fine, but I'm an optimist so maybe I'm just hoping.

Sure Dunn is having his share of problems at the moment. He's a streaky hitter. Here's something to chew on for a while though. When all is said and done, the Reds may miss the post season by half a dozen games. How many games did the bullpen lose this year?
