    Adam Dunn

    Approaching June 1st and Adam Dunn is hitting .184 with 5 HR's and a blistering 67 strikeouts as the White Sox DH.

    Signed to make $12M in '11, $14M in '12, $15M in '13, and $15M in '14. Unreal.

    If he doesn't come around and he's on the decline, this could do down as one of the worst contracts in the history of the game. Seriously.

    Re: Adam Dunn

    Hard to believe that he has fallen off this much so fast. He's either hurt, off the juice, or just mentally in a funk. He has been so consistent in his production it just doesn't make sense that he would blow up like this. He isn't really that old, especially for the type of hitter/player that he is.

    I think I read Adam had an appendectomy surgery. If this is the case? I would think it would set you back a bit. I think Francisco had one last year and it took him awhile to get back on track.

    yeah, at the start of April he had surgery. it was the least invasive kind of procedure for the ailment but still would prevent someone from working out and staying in shape and strong, at least for a minute, I would think.

    Matt Holiday had an appendectomy and did not even go on the DL and came back mashing. I think Dunn's lack of work ethic has caught up to him.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Dunn also has not had a single hit vs a lefty this year in 38 at bats.

    Maybe he has had trouble adjusting to the AL.

    That is a lot of money. Money that we could not have afforded to shell out. Personally, when he was in Cincy, I thought he should have been playing 1st base, the Hatteberg signing made no sense.

    I assume he is just not used to DHing and is so used to playing everyday. A big adjustment for a player. He also looked as if he has gained some more weight. I still believe he will end up with 30+ home runs this year.

    Big guys with long swings like Dunn age terribly post 30. The second he loses any bat speed he will completely drop off a cliff in terms of production. For players like Dunn there isn't usually a steady decline, but rather a steep fall. I was a big Dunn fan, but had no interest in signing him long-term past 32.

    I would still like to see him as a Red, thinking of Votto, Dunn, Bruce batting back to back to back would be a nightmare for pitchers, especially at GABP.

    Three lefties in a row? You need a copy of Bakermetrics 101. Dusty's head would explode.
