    Dunn home run 8/17

    Did anyone get the distance of the home run last night?
    I was watching DTV with the Brewers broadcast. They said
    it was the farthest they had ever seen in a game at Miller Park.
    They said Fielder has hit some up there in batting practice, but
    had never seen one hit that far in a game.

    well, you all know it's dunn's fault that milwaukee scored three runs lastnight. it's also dunn's fault that mike stanton has struggled all season and coutlangus was sent to the bats. yup, the reds can afford to trade that offense away.

    Can you imagine what Adam Dunn would do to a baseball on steroids? He might literally knock the cover off.

    Adam Dunn got the same reward for his upper deck blast as Hatteberg did for one that just cleared the wall. When they start letting you run around the bases and score two runs for hitting the ball into the upped deck I will be impressed. Upper deck blasts are baseball's answer to the dunk in basketball. All style and not one extra bit of substance. They both get you on Sportscenter though. I am certain that if anyone could afford to sacrifice a bit of power for more consistent contact it would be Adam Dunn. And equally certain we will never find out.

    Only Adam Dunn, and only on Redszone, could be criticized for a long home run.

    I don't see any criticism in that post. Can you be so kinda as to point it out to me?

    How is that a criticism? That says Adam Dunn is one of the most powerful hitters in baseball. And furthermore if anyone could afford to sacrifice some power and still be a effective, while putting more balls into play it is Dunn. That is a compliment. Before the season I posted that AD would put up a .975+ OPS. I think he has a lot of untapped potential. I don't think we will ever see it though. But I hope we do. The above quote was not a critique. That was my realistic assessment of the situation.

    umm, yeah. I'm pretty sure his response was to Fazio, and FadeTo's remarks that caused this thread to turn into something more than response about a tape-measure shot.

    Only on Reds Zone can anyone marvel at Dunn's raw power and think, "How could anyone want to get rid of him? He can hit the ball 450 feet!"

    I'm just going to quit because both sides are firmly entrenched on their Dunn arguments. All I have to say is I love Dunn's raw power. I love when he has his, "Are you kidding me" home runs.
