From this AM’s Enquirer:
Dunn’s 40th yesterday made him only the 3rd player in franchise history to hit 40 in back to back seasons. (Klu [’53-’55] & Foster [’77-’78]).
He became the first player since Dave Parker (’85-’86) to drive in 100 runs in consecutive seasons.
And he lowered his strikeout total from 195 to 168.
He’s not happy about the dip in his BA vs LHP though (from .256 to .197).
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.
