    Adam Dunn is a nice player on a team where he is the 4th or 5th best player in the line up. He is not a guy to build a team around and he is not worth 13 million a year for the Reds. He hasnt improved as a player in 5+ years and he needs to be traded for this team to make a step up.

    two out no body on, he "tries" for a single turns it into a double, just like Freel on Friday, the Reds have to be the dumbest team ever assembled, they would outdo Vince Young on the wonderlick test

    Re: Why The Reds Need Adam Dunn

    If they pick up Dunn's option we may be able to sign a decent releiver and an ok 4th starter. Here's my list why not to keep Adam Dunn:

    1. He's too streaky and can go on 2-4 week slumps
    2. His defence is better but still not good enough
    3. He does not hit with RISP
    4. He does not hit lefties well
    5. 32% of his homers come when we are either up or down 5 runs
    6. Too many solo Home Runs
    7. He refuses to swing at a pitch thats a little outside and knock it the opposite way
    8. The Reds need that money to improve in other areas

    First of all is a decent 4th starter and a decent reliever going to hit 40 home runs and drive in 100 runs? No.

    3&6. Is it his fault people aren't on base when he homers?
    7. Why she he swing at balls?
    8. They have money coming off of Milton and others to send on.

    Yeah, it's Dunn's attitude that makes the Reds lose real insightful.

    "First of all is a decent 4th starter and a decent reliever going to hit 40 home runs and drive in 100 runs? No."

    No, I'm saying thats about all were gonna get in free agency if he have to pay him 13 mill in 2008.


    "7. Why she he swing at balls?"

    If the pitch is just a little outside all the really good to great players will take that pitch the other way. If he did that he'd drive in 120 per year.



    "8. They have money coming off of Milton and others to send on."



    With Milton off the books along with a Lohse, Hatteberg, and maybe a Weathers trade we'll have about 10-15 mill to spend. That will get us a decent releiver and an ok 4th starter, thats not enough. Don't forget, Arroyo and Harang are getting pretty big pay increases next year.

    Re: Why The Reds Need Adam Dunn

    Adam Dunn is not consistent, even HR wise, those even come in bunches, maybe less sparingly than his other type hits when he's in a slump. And 40 HR isn't beat all, cheap or not.

    And I'm tired of hearing about how Dunn "isn't so bad" in LF, his defense is most of the time borderline tolerable, so the defensive metrics can take a hike as far as I'm concerned.

    I mean consistent in season totals. Should've mentioned that before.
