I am interrupting my vacation for this note about Adam Dunn’s numbers. All the Dunn bashers have some ‘splainin to do.

He is now 12th in ALL of baseball with 52 RBI with RISP.

He has 52 RBI in 125 Plate Appearances.
Saint Albert Pujols has 54 RBI in139 Plate Appearances.

So even by these “baseball man” stats he is now doing better than even Pujols. Oh the humanity.

Someone forward this to Lance “dunn is overrated” McAlister.

    Preaching to the choir, me and my buddy noticed we hadn’t seen any trolls – Michael – recently here or over on Red Reporter.

    At some point during the season, it seemed like it finally began to click for Dunn. Maybe it was the dismissal of Miley but this is not the same Dunn that was running his mouth everytime the media showed up.

    Perhaps you mean, “the guy who answered every question the media put to him.”

    Jim, I think you comments on Dunn are way off. He’s been one of the players (all season) who has played well, yet he was singled out time and again in the media (who seem to take their lead from the team) and when Miley decided to get tough, he cracked down on Dunn and Junior (two effective players). And the fact that Dunn was unhappy about it makes him a bad guy? I don’t see it.

    There is a distinctive difference between the first half Dunn and the second half Dunn. The second half Dunn has stopped being overly selective at the plate. He better recognizes what the situation calls for and, as a result, his RBI numbers are improving.

    I didn’t see the masaage chairs being carried back in when Narron took over.

    The “distinct” differenece is 1 ebh every 5 ab’s to 1 every 7 ab’s.

    His walk rate and k rate are percentage points apart.

    The “difference”?

    Batting in a protected position with runners on, not chairs, not Miley, not fundamentals…. just a plain old fashion hitting streak.

    For what it’s worth, the massage chairs are still in the team chapel, according to my source with the Reds.

    And yes, I actually asked that question. I was interested….

    Jim and other previous detractors should realize and take to heart what Narron likes to say. The season is long, and at the end of the season, most guys’ stats will be where they should be. Primary example being Dunn. Also, Narron is a bit of a factor because he has had the common sense to move Dunn up in the order against righties…Chris

    To bad Felipe Lopez had to stop hitting when Dunn started.
