    The "Adam Dunn will heat up once Edwin heats up" Thread

    Since April 10th when Edwin began his torrid streak, he's been hitting .360 with 5 HR's/ 9 RBI's. (4 of those HR's were solo).

    Adam Dunn is hitting .212 with 2 HR a nd 3 RBI's.

    Now, I realize Edwin wasn't hitting directly behind Dunn some of that time, but Edwin is one of the hottest hitters in the league and AD is 3/17 in the last 5 games.

    Will the heating up of Adam take time? Or do some of you fools still want to pay Adam Dunn $15 million to hit for a month, then take a month off, hit for a month, take a month off?

    I sure don't wanna pay him 15 million to hit whenever he darn well feels like it. My biggest grip against Dunn over the years is his inconsitency. He can't hit for average and usualy refuses to cut down his swing and take the ball to the opposite field. Hitting for alil average won't kill him now will it.

    one thing he does do consistently is get on base. I would propose the question what is better? hitting .290 with an OBP of .330 or hitting .200 and OBP right under .400? I just want to hear people's opinions.

    Personally, I'd take the .290 with .330. Getting on base is nice, but as this team has shown, you do still need to move the runners.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Take the .290 .330 all day long. If Dunn ain't driving in runs, he's nothing more than a guy that can get on base, he ain't worth the money if that's all he's going to do. He's paid to drive in runs, he ain't getting it done.

    From the Enquirer...and yet we still gt the lineup that Dusty carts out today...

    For all the talk about the Reds not being able to hit with runners in scoring position (RISP), they are hitting higher in that situation than the Chicago Cubs, who led the Reds by 6 1/2 games going into Saturday night's games?

    It's true: The Reds are hitting .257 with RISP, and the Cubs are hitting .244 in the same circumstances. (The Reds are hitting four points higher than the National League average with RISP - .253.)

    So, why have the Cubs outscored the Reds by 42 runs? Because the Cubs have 82 more plate appearances with RISP than do the Reds (220 plate appearances with RISP - 14th in the 16-team league).

    Conclusion: You've got to get runners on base in order to score them.

    Adam Dunn will begin heating up on Wednesday, April 30th in celebration of the 205th Anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase.

    Are you serious? How can you say that when it'll be the 63rd anniversary of Adolf Hitler committing suicide? The nerve!

    Just look at the guy in front of Dunn...

    Phillips is the worst #4 hitter in baseball. He can't get on base, and he'll hit into 25 Double plays a year. Do you have to wonder why Dunn never gets up with the pitchers going after him? They don't need to since no one is on base

    It's been done to death on this board, but...

    SS Keppinger
    1B Votto
    LF Dunn
    RF Griffey
    3B Encarnacion
    2B Phillips
    CF Patterson
    C Bako
    Pitcher

    vs. LHP you could switch Griffey and EE to split up the lefties

    You've got Kepp, Votto and Dunn getting on base for Griffey and EE, and Patterson hitting 7th gives you great defense in CF without an OBP liability at leadoff. Needs to happen. Speed at the top of the lineup is great, but OBP is more important.

    Of course we all know leading off with the SS is unheard of for Dusty. The centerfielder is fast, surely the fastest guy should bat first in the lineup... Right?

    Watching the Giants, those two speedsters at the top of their lineup did hurt us, no doubt... but when you've got Cory Patterson on your team, it's best to limit the early outs to a minimum.

    I'd bat him 7th and take the OBP guys at the top of the order.

    Re: The "Adam Dunn will heat up once Edwin heats up" Thread

    The point of this thread is that many posters claimed that Dunn hasn't been hitting because there's never anyone behind him that's hitting. Well, Encarnacion is one of the hottest hitters in the league and he still can't manage to hit the ball on a consistent basis.

    Dunn's hitting issues were EE's fault at first, now's its Brandon's? I'm sure Dunn would be the first to say his slow start is his fault, not anyone elses. Blaming everyone else, including the leadoff hitter for not getting on base is not the reason Dunn is so bad right now. Maybe it acutally is Dunn's fault.

    If Dunn has to be in the lineup, bat him 7th.
