    Dump On Dunn

    Here are the terrible stats on Adam Dunn. August through October .175AVG, .298OBP, .345SLG, 9HR, 21RBI, and 76K. 2HR and 5RBI in last 114AB.

    He's done, finished, on a downhill slide. What's wrong? He's lazy, He's overweight, has the dang bat cocked so far back that all he can do is hit the long ball. Get rid of him NOW!

    Wow high quality stuff there. </sarcasm>

    I'm disappointed in his second half, as most all fans are, but downhill slide? Finished?

    He's neither I'm fairly sure.

    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

    Re: Dump On Dunn

    Here is a terrible post/thread on RedsZone. The poster started here in July 2006 and has slid so far downhill that it can only think of non-original posts/threads like this one

    It's done, finished, on a downhill slide and obviously not a MLB scout. What's wrong? Perhaps it is lazy and it can not come up with anything more original (beat a deadhorse). Get rid of it NOW!

    Re: Dump On Dunn

    I would like to see a little bit of Rudi Johnson in Adam Dunn. I'd like to read during this off season that he's re-dedicating himself to baseball. That he's decided he's too good a ballplayer to not get 100 RBIs and hit .230. Do like Rudi and hire a personal trainer, chef and nutritionist. Ask Chris Chambliss for a bunch of tapes to study. Buy a house here in town and stay in close contact with the coaches and facilities at GABP.

    Dunn is so talented he hit 40 HRs, hit .230 and walk 100 times without working at it. By that I mean he can show up at the ballpark, take batting practice, shag some fly balls and play the game. When it's over, head out to the bars with the boys, wake up the next day and get in some fishing.

    I am of the opinion that Dunn would just as soon continue that lifestyle as opposed to becoming a superstar. I hope he proves me wrong...while in a Reds uniform.

    Sea Ray, that was an excellent way to criticize a player. If I had rep left to give for the day I would send it to you. You stated a few opinions and points without being overly negative or beating the same point [strikeouts] over the head.

    Kudos to you.

    Agree with Joseph, Sea Ray. Interesting point that I considered making in the other thread. Rudi gained 1500 yards last year with a bum knee. This year, he's been hitting the hole like he's shot out of a cannon.

    Is this really "Adam from Milwaukee"?

    Agreed...[and I gave some rep points out from both you and me].

    He's finished. I don't work on emotions, I work on the facts.

    Dunn didn't play to his potential this year but he is far from being "done, finished, on a downhill slide."

    Re: Dump On Dunn

    Dunn has done this before. He is known to finish poorly it seems.

    As far as his training regimin in the offseason, there is a major difference between NFL and MLB players. If Rudi doesn't train like the dickens, someone will replace him by year end, and he is out of the NFL most likely. In MLB, you don't train, but you have Dunn's natural ability, you are GUARANTEED $10 mil til you are 35 years old or so. I think this is why you don't see a lot of MLB players doing this off season training like NFL players. I'm sure there are a few, but rather uncommon.

    But, I would of course love to see himself be a bit more dedicated, but I'm not him or his training, so I have no idea how much he doesn't train in the offseason.

    What would change this??? Perhaps a basic contract (5 mil or so) with a heavy dose of performance incentives???

    You could never get him to sign that. Because there are 10 other teams willing to pay him big dollars up front. After his current contract is over he will be a free agent. Usually the only time you are able to put incentives into a contract is, a player coming back from injuries (Currently unsigned) or a player that is on his last leg with a team and getting his last chance.
    WHEN DOES IT STOP!?!?
