    Wish we had a player like Pujols!!

    Watching the game tonight on ESPN, they talked to Pujols and he said he comes to each game with a plan every time.. he makes adjustments every game.. WOW that will NEVER happen with Dunn!!! He has all the talent to be very good and refuses to even try..

    The real reason that some Reds fans don't like Dunn. He's not Albert Pujols.

    People spend WAY too much time complaining about what he's not and not enough time thanking what he actually IS.

    Did he tell you that himself? If not, that statement is pretty baseless and a very big assumption on your part.

    He also kicks puppies and steals social security checks from little old ladies.

    I would like to suggest that we do not know what he does to prepare for a game. I also would like to suggest that we don't know if he refuses to try either.


    Adam Dunn does not = Albert Pujols and he never will, nor will any other MLB player. Adam Dunn is currently OPB-ing nearly .400. What more could we ask?

    I wish the Reds had Pujols at first, Utley at second, Hanley R at short (with Everett as a late inning defensive replacement), AROD at third, Soriano in left, Granderson in center and Wlad in right.

    This thread is pointless. You want to start a thread praising Pujols, fine. But don't start one just to denigrate one of our players.
