Adam Dunn

996 OPS.

Tied for the MLB lead in homers.

Sign him to a long-term contract, NOW!

Please, Dan O’Brien?

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. We need to call in a favor from Jason Romano. I’m sure we can blackmail OB into signing Dunn to a long-term deal with whatever pictures, movies, etc. Romano used to stay on the team for so long.

  2. He sucks. He can’t hit with people on. He doesn’t drive in runs. Wait…..nevermind:grin:

  3. Where are all the yahoos that were carping about him just a couple of weeks ago. Did AOL turn off your service?

  4. The big questions is why did Narron have him in the 6 hole again last night. Granted, he got 5 RBI’s, so he obviously had opportunities, but I’d like to see him planted in that clean-up role.

  5. I have a question. Who really thinks Dunn would resign? I dont see any reason for him to. The Reds aren’t winning and probably wont anytime soon. And just like everyone says he is under appreciated by his own organization. Ya thats real incentive to resign with the Reds.

  6. He hit sixth because his numbers had been atrocious all season versus lefthanders. Doesn’t mean he’s not a great player…he’s just usually not that great versus lefties.

    I await your scorn for pointing this out.

  7. You’re right, he was dropped down because of his production against lefties this year.

    On the other hand, Horacio Ramirez isn’t exactly having the best year. Before last night he had an ERA of 4.36 (on the road: 5.30) and had given up 20 homeruns in 132 IP. I don’t think Narron’s decision to drop Dunn down was a bad one, but i do wonder at what point looking at statistical splits ceases to be useful when you consider the match-up itself. Randy Johnson may be worth considering, but Horacio Ramirez?

    Plus, Dunn’s been killing the ball. Let him hit fourth.

    by the way, nice attitude newguy.

  8. Oh, no! We can’t talk resigning because it is during the season and Dan O’Brien has this 1960’s type of thinking that you can’t talk contract during the season.
