McCoy on Dunn

From the DDN website:

Q — If Adam Dunn hits 50 home runs this year, don’t you think he’ll demand more than what the Reds can or will pay? — Greg, Fairborn
A — If Dunn hits 50 home runs, they’ll pay him — probably in UDF milkshakes or American Financial stock. Dunn is a keeper, a franchise foundation. Let’s see Dunn get to 50 homers and see what happens.

Holy homer, Batman…a local media guy singing Dunn’s praises?

What’s next, McCoy calling for moving Casey out of the #3 spot?

Nah, let’s not go crazy.

I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

  1. I haven’t mentioned it, because I don’t want my posts to be 100% about Dunn And The Media, but McCoy has been on the ball about this a good bit lately, as has Chris Welsh. Welsh was debating Dunn’s strikeouts with Dan Hoard (subbing ably for the tiresome George Grande). Hoard devil’s-advocated that Dunn’s Ks hurt the club, Welsh argued the opposite, in basically the same language that you’ll see around here.

  2. Also during that same broadcast with Dan and Chris, Chris stated that he thought Dunn should be batting higher in the order. When Dan pressed him for where in the lineup Dunn should be, Chris said, paraphrasing, that just a week ago, he would have said bat Dunn third and move Casey down. Now he wants him fourth, moving Griffey down to fifth or sixth.

  3. This is very simple. Sign Dunn, live with his strikeouts, win a ballgame or two.
