You ever play texas hold 'em at a 9 or 10 seat table?
Adam Dunn is like getting Queen/Ten over and over and over again. It's a losing hand. Any Ace or King hand has you beat. And you can bet you're going to run into an ace or king at a 9/10 seat table. You lose. You lose over and over and over and over again.
Yes they're two fairly "big" cards. But they're not big enough to win with. It's a losing hand !!!
No the Reds don't have any Aces or Kings ready to insert into the lineup but they have a suited 8 and 9 of hearts in Hopper and Denorfia. Take your chances with some suited connectors. Fold the losing hand.
