    unfortunately like most decisions people make.. they are too stubborn to realize they are wrong and by getting on his wagon they are wrong.. soo they will ride him out til he is gone.. and when he is gone and we still arent winning they will claim it is because we dont have him.. not remembering we didnt win with him either..

    Re: Dunn, should he stay or go?

    If the decision was made to let Dunn go, maybe you move Kepp to LF, put EE at first... and that allows the Herr Ultimatum to be put into effect. Muwahahahahaha...

    I don't know what to do about Dunn. He's a liability in the OF but his at bats are consideration for keeping him. Maybe we can morph him with Corey Patterson -- a good bat and a good fielder.

    Here's a plan... move Patterson to left field but have Dunn DH for him.

    Problem solved.

    Just like Hamilton and his 79 RBI's. Does anybody here think that Hamilton would have 79 RBI's with this squad?

    no but he would have more than Dunn, and be a HUGE UPGRADE at defense over almost anyone else we run out there..

    Dunn and Griffey need to go. Both are sub par defensively which costs are pitching staff runs. Their complete lack of contact continues to baffle this team with runners in scoring position.

    If we could get him to stay cheap and by cheap I mean 8-10 mill over 3 years but thats not going to happen so let him go.

    Re: Dunn, should he stay or go?

    From the ORG:

    Summary of this thread and 99% of the other 5000 Dunn threads:

    1. Someone mentions Adam Dunn in any respect.

    2. Someone posts that Dunn sucks because he has a low batting average and strikes out often.

    3. Other people post that the important metrics prove Dunn is a very valuable run producer despite his flaws.

    4. Someone posts that even though Dunn is the best Reds hitter of the past decade he is overpaid.

    5. Someone posts that his market value is $15-17 million per year as compared to similar players.

    6. Someone posts that he may be worth that much money but the Reds can't afford it because Cincinnati is just a poor, run-down little village with no money.

    7. Someone posts that the Reds have plenty of money to spend and they make a big profit every year.

    8. Someone says "Yeah, but he can't play defense" and concocts a stat showing Dunn is the worst left fielder in major league history.


    It has gotten so predictable that we can even tell exactly which posters will perform each step of the process.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    BLEEDS breaks out Stats for the STAT guys that say Dunn needs to go, and the STAT guys ignore the Stats, and say his D sucks. OR he K's too much...

    Adam Dunn is the only Reds organization product drafted and Groomed that has become an Impact player in the last 20 years and some people want him gone? That was in a paper article somewhere, like Paul Doherty or whaterver his name is...

    I don't want Dunn gone. I just don't want the Reds to pay him as if he is a elite player. I would go as high as 4 years at 12-13 mill. with a club option for a 5th

    I think we could all (save for a few nut jobs) live with that. However, $15M is more likely to "Git er Dunn!" pun intended...
