BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Five seasons since 1950 exist in which a batter hit 40 or more home runs and tallied fewer WARP than Dunn did in 2012; each required substantial negative FRAA contributions and none had a lower VORP total. Given Dunn's fielding limitations, this could be the worst 40-homer season ever, or would be had he been forced to don a glove every game, rather than in just about a third of them. That he drew 105 walks and still accomplished this feat adds to its uniqueness. The news gets worse for those concerned that he's due $30 million over the next two seasons: He hit just .190/.314/.424 from May 15 onward. The silver lining is that his power and plate discipline are still intact. Also on the "plus" side, he missed tying Mark Reynolds's record for most strikeouts in a season by one, though we feel compelled to put scare quotes around "plus."
2012 Having erred in not re-signing Jim Thome for the 2010 season, the Sox paid top dollar last year for Dunn to fill their DH void, only to watch his sluggerís license expire. How historic was Dunnís power outage? There have been 2,300 qualifying player-seasons where a batter slugged over .500, and last year Dunn became the first to follow up such a year by slugging below .300. Whether due to age, changing leagues, adapting to the DH spot, or some random Ozzieball curse, Dunn spent the season at sea, unable to catch up to the fastballs he has traditionally crushed and posting a stomach-churning .064/.235/.074 line against lefties. The good news is Dunnís superior batting eye remains intact, and a newfound commitment to offseason cage work may perk up his reflexes and remind him how to put bat on ball with authority. None of that will stop him from being a Canyonero-sized millstone in the field and on the basepaths. While heís certain to improve at the plate, his days as one of baseballís most feared one-trick ponies might be over, unless the three years and $44 million left on his contract say otherwise.
2011 Dunn liberated himself from DC early enough that he wouldn't have to worry about starring in Hondo 2 and will get his shot at slugging for a contending team for the first time in his career. Moving to Chicago's South Side (for four years and $56 million) to DH couldn't come soon enough; the Donkey may be big at the plate, but despite working on his first-base defense, he throws about as well as Frank Thomas did while moving around with all of Jason Giambi's dead-cat dexterity. But will he fill the bill as a DH as effectively as Jim Thome did back in the day? Dunn hit just as many homers last season as he had in 2009, but he swung much more aggressively than ever before, which produced a career-low unintentional walk rate of 10.5 percent and a career-high swinging-strike rate of 25 percent (compared to the 14-percent major-league average). The concern is that these developments might be symptoms of slowing reflexes, not just a change in approach, but as long as he's slugging for an isolated power in the .270s, questions won't get asked. The Cell will help him; although it's less generous to lefties than right-handers, it's still a great ballpark in which to bop. Add in Dunn's habit of chewing up strike-throwers and soft-tossers, and you can see how easily he could become known as Adam Twinsbane.
2010 Baseballís version of the Lego block, the shape of Dunnís production never changes. His patience and power make him a solid base upon which to snap together a productive lineup, his strikeouts and low batting averages make him seem less valuable than he really is, and his inanimate defense erodes a large portion of his value. Dunnís first season in Washington on a two-year, $20 million contract saw him fall short of 40 home runs for the first time since 2003, but a career-high batting average and OBP and continued power in a less hitter-friendly park led to his best EqA. The Nationals have permanently shifted his iron glove to first base where they feel it will do less damage, and the Big Donkeyís taking jiu jitsu to improve his agility. If that works, Washington will have even less chance to re-sign him at yearís end, since even a hint of glove-liness will add NL teams to a list of suitors already likely to include everyone in the market for a boppiní DH.
2009 You certainly can't call Dunn unreliable, because in the last four years he's walked over 100 times while hitting 40 home runs on the nose. The trade to Arizona gave him the opportunity to make a ton of money in his free-agency walk year, but he was still the same player, striking out a ton, not hitting for average, showing limited mobility in the field, and, oh yeah, those walks and homers. While the low batting averages tend to obscure Dunn's value among the traditionally-minded, back-of-the-bubblegum-card crowd, but he does play back some of the runs on defense. Somewhere and someday there's an American League team's DH spot with Dunn's name on it.
2008 It says all you need to know about the relationship between Dunn and the Reds that picking up the big slugger's $13 million contract option for 2008 wasn't a foregone conclusion. His low batting averages and high strikeout totals still cloud people's judgment about his value; meanwhile, he just keeps on notching 40-homer/100-walk seasons. It doesn't help his cause that he's now built like an NFL linebacker, rather than the more streamlined high school quarterback he used to be. Given the outfield talent the Reds have at the major league level and coming through the pipeline, it would be a surprise to see Dunn in a Reds uniform come August 1.
2007 As you`d expect from a player with old-player skills (walks and power with a healthy dose of strikeouts), Dunn isn`t getting better at an age when players are supposed to be rising to their peak. Add in that he`s a bit of a klutz in the outfield--a problem that`s exacerbated by Griffey`s decline in center--and a plodder on the bases, and you can understand why the Reds might not want to pick up their $13 million option for 2008.
2006 PECOTA was extremely close in predicting Dunn`s 2005 slugging and OBP, but the Reds, their fans, and the rabble-rousing sports media in Cincy nevertheless wouldn`t get off of Dunn`s back. The Brobdingnagian slugger can`t carry the team to a pennant if every angry peasant in the Ohio Valley is poking him in the ankles with their pitchforks because they think he strikes out too much. He has a 149-point home/road split in OPS in favor of the Great American Ball Park since it opened. Though he was never as bad a left fielder as his reputation would suggest, Dunn will play first base now that Casey is gone.
2005 The BP2002 cover jinx continued for Dunn, as he set a major league record with 195 strikeouts, embarrassing himself and the orgÖwait, what? He was actually good? Yes, turns out that striking out a lot is okay, if you've got a well-rounded set of other skills. The Paul Bunyan-like former football star raised his power game to another gear, bashing 46 homers, including a bomb off Jose Lima to dead center that flew out of the stadium, bounced into the Ohio River, and came to rest somewhere in Kentuckyóliterally. But Dunn also cranked 34 doubles, raised his average 51 points and continued to show solid athleticism for a man his size. The Reds need to forget about nickel-and-diming and get him inked to a long-term deal, because Adam Dunn is The Franchise.
2003 He fell considerably short of Hidalgo depths, but you can chalk Dunn up as another casualty of the dreaded BP cover jinx. Although his 128 walks broke the major league record by players under 23 years of age, Dunn struggled with the strike zone all season long. He was tentative at the plate, too often passing on meatballs early in the count. Feeling that his natural position is first base, Boone gave him plenty of on-the-job training when Casey was hurt. Right now, as a first baseman he makes a better left fielder. Dunn has too much drive and natural talent not to bounce back this season.
2002 Dunn is the best young hitting prospect in the game right now, because he has the sense to wait on a pitch and the wrists to catch up to anything and drive it. Called up in July after Alex Ochoa was traded, Dunn totaled 51 home runs among Double-A, Triple-A, and the majors. His time on the gridiron as a quarterback shows up on the diamond, in that heís not yet a natural outfielder. He flashes a good arm at times, but he also takes poor routes to the ball. Experience and patience will help him improve. Itís fun to start kicking around comparisons between the Austin Kearns/Ken Griffey/Adam Dunn outfield that should be in place by the end of the year and that tantalizing Kal Daniels/Paul OíNeill/Eric Davis group of the late '80s. OíNeill was 25 when he joined Davis and Daniels in the outfield in 1988; Davis was 26 with just two full seasons under his belt (thanks again, Mr. Rose), while Daniels was six months younger than OíNeill and already had a full season of experience. By contrast, Griffey is older than any of that trio, but heís also everything Davis might have been and then some. Dunn and Kearns are both significantly younger than their 1988 counterparts, which makes them more likely to turn into superstars instead of merely stars of the caliber of OíNeill and Daniels.
2001 The Reds' lack of a high-A affiliate has forced them to choose between forcing prospects to Double-A or risking them stagnating in middle-A. Diaz was pushed, while Adam Dunn was left in the Midwest League to have a big year. Of the Reds' pool of outfield prospects, only Austin Kearns is a better bet than Dunn.
2000 The Reds caught a break when Dunn elected to play baseball full-time rather than return to the University of Texas, where he was the backup quarterback. Given the play of Major Applewhite last fall, it looks like a good decision. Dunn is 6í6Ē, weighs 230 pounds and is fast, a tremendous physical talent who can hit and run. His outfield play so far has been shaky, but is expected to improve as he gains experience. With Casey and Broussard ahead of him at first base, he doesnít have much choice but to improve.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any interest in Adam Dunn or John Danks? If so, will the White Sox make a move? They did part with Gordon Beckham for next to nothing.
(Nick from Chicago)
I was surprised Dunn didn't get moved to a team wanting a bat off the bench or DH. I suppose he's not the easiest player to fit onto a roster. As for Danks, he was reportedly pursued by a few teams. I think his contract situation probably caused any potential deal to be benched until the winter. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)FFF!!! Even with only one podcast this year, I rode the 411 strategy and philosophy to fantasy domination. Just saying. Also, outlook for Jose Abreu next year? Given the lack of MLB track record or poor understanding of how to Cuban stats relate to MLB stats, are we seeing the ceiling and should expect regression or are there more adjustments in the future (e.g. ridiculous contact rate in the second half v. first half).
(moonkyu from SF)
Glad to hear it! As for Abreu, my sources sold me this year on his "anywhere" power, but his command of the strike zone was a total wild card, so I expected a Mark Trumbo or Adam Dunn type of season: 35-40 homers but a shaky average. A 112-40 K-BB ratio is very manageable in today's game, when it comes with his kind of power... I don't think he'll hit .322 every year, but clearly his average won't be a liability. He's a first-rounder in pretty much every format next year, given the league-wide decline in power in recent seasons. (Cory Schwartz)
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)Is it fair to say Adam Dunn could establish himself as the White Sox frontline ace in the next 2-3 years?
(Me from Somewhere)
He is almost definitely more durable than Chris Sale, so bring it on. At least put him in the bullpen where he can really air it out and showcase his premier stuff. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)More efficient infield at converting ground balls into outs: 6 Adam Dunn's or 4 Andrelton Simmons'?
(BOB from Pittsburgh)
It's all about alignment. You could lay six Adam Dunns end to end and span the perimeter of the infield, corralling every ground ball. Meanwhile, Simmons would be out of position at first base. (Matt Sussman)
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)More lateral range: Adam Dunn standing up or Andrelton Simmons lying down? (Assume Simmons is allowed to get up once the ball's put into play.)
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
But Dunn can fall down faster than Simmons can get up, and Dunn covers more ground that way. (Matt Sussman)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I hear people talk about Schwarber's limited defensive ability. In regards to OF play, are we talking Adam Dunn bad?
(Matt from KY)
It's certainly not as bad as Dunn is now, no. Back in the day, though, Dunn was a decent athlete. He was never an above-average defender, but he wasn't the abomination he would be now if you put him out there. Schwarber won't be great out there, but he's not going to be that bad, especially while he's young. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Gallo will make enough contact in the Bigs for his 80 tool power to play? Is he more Giancarlo Stanton or Adam Dunn?
(childgrambino from Richmond, VA)
Probably split the difference, but I do like the improvements Gallo has made this year. Scouts are becoming more convinced that he's a viable third baseman, too, which is huge. Right now, I'm seeing something like .240-to-.255 with 30+ homers as being a reasonable explanation. If he continues to improve, though ... help us all. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)12 team points blah blah blah. We get 6 keepers, should I be hanging onto Singleton when I have Springer, Cespedes, Polanco, Baez, Heaney, and JoFer :( ? I'm debating dumping him for Adam Dunn at 1B who I obviously wouldn't keep.
(mattyjames1 from Regina)
If we're talking ROS, I have no problem hanging on to Singleton over Dunn -- that way, you can make your keeper selection later in the year when you have more information available. I also don't think it's a foregone conclusion that Singleton performs worse than Dunn throughout the remainder of the year.

And yeah ... Jose Fernandez. :( (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Matt Olson? His batting average seems to be slowly climbing, and the OBP and SLG is definetely there. Next Adam Dunn? Or can he raise his BA as he grows like Gallo has?
(Frank from CA)
I think it's a long swing and he's in the cal league, so I'm not too excited. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the prospect that's moved the most since beginning of the year and why is is Joey Gallo?
(Will from Dallas)
Joey Gallo is certainly the prospect who has made it move the most half way through the season. I'll give you that. He's actualizing his enormous raw power in the form of in game power, and that's hugely important. The approach has taken a step forward, and he's simplified his swing. I'm not sold that he'll stick in the infield, but even in RF, he's got a monster profile. However, he's going to have to make adjustments, and may have some trouble with arm side pitching at the highest level.

I also dislike the comparisons to Adam Dunn. I get the ultimate upside is that level, but let's not forget, Adam Dunn has a chance to hit 500+ home runs in his career; and I'd bet against Gallo ever reaching that many bombs, even with his improvement. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What?! No Joey Gallo question yet? Is Gallo anything more or less than Adam Dunn 2.0? Thanks for the chat!
(Goldeye99 from Wpg)
I think there is the chance for more, but even if that's "all" he is, that'd be fantastic. Remember, Dunn used to be a premier fantasy asset (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the player you find yourself overvaluing (or just ending up with on your team) more than others?
(Kel from Goodburger)
Is it too cliche to say Adam Dunn? We went around the table on this one and here's what we got: Ben: "I have a soft spot for Evan Longoria that results in what we have come to call irrational affection." Ian: "In general, I'll overvalue prospects relative to my colleagues, or possibly sanity, would dictate. In particular, I'll remember prospect value even after the majors has gotten in the way, so I'll be one of the last off the Jason Heyward train, for example." Jared: "I tend to have a special fondness for guys who can mash the ball, without stopping to think too much about whether they can get on base. Like, say, Khris Davis. Or Chris Davis. Or any other variant thereof." Ben adds: "...like Mark Trumbo!" (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike, In your opinion, what is the most likely outcome for Gallo in the bigs, stat-wise and position-wise?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
I think he winds up at first base or DH. My guess is that he'll be an Adam Dunn type best case and a Russ Branyan type worst case (think 30-35 home runs with a batting average ranging anywhere from .220 to .260. (Mike Gianella)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)I have been in a 14-team mixed keeper league (23 man rosters) with daily lineup changes (5X5 plus holds and OPS) for the last three years. After years of success in roto, I have struggled mightily in this league. In roto leagues, I preferred a balanced approach (4 and 5 category players whenever possible) and try to eliminate rostering players that are sinkholes in categories (i.e. Adam Dunn's batting average). I have tried this approach in H2H and it seems like I am more susceptible to variability than other teams (i.e. my average baseline of category numbers each week is lower than most teams...so unless my players have coordinated good weeks, I lose). Should I consider loading up in certain areas (i.e. go all-out for power hitters or starting pitching) with a smattering of everything else to keep me modestly competitive in those categories? Is there some subtlety to H2H leagues that I might be overlooking? Any general "rules of thumb"?
(JoshC77 from Columbus, Ohio)
I like punting categories in H2H and shoring up other ones, so yeah that's viable. I tend to punt SB's and Sv's the most in H2H leagues. You're also going to want to pay attention to match ups way more than you're used to in ROTO. Streaks will kill you and platooning is a must for guys who need it.

Also guys like Trumbo (who fade in the second half) will really hurt you if you're not careful with his playing time. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hola. In a 10 team 5x5 with OPS instead of AVG and starting 5 OF, CI, MI, and 1 UTIL, plus 9 P (can be SP or RP). I am leaning toward the following 5 keepers at the cost of the round in (): Fielder (1), Votto (2), Craig (6), Choo (9), Dunn (21). My other options are Beltre (2), Stanton (2), Kinsler (3), Perkins (19) and Uehara (23). Did I choose the right 5? If you keep 2 players from the same round (e.g. Beltre and Votto), it costs that round and the preceding round (e.g. 1st and 2nd). So I couldn't keep 2 2nd's and a 1st. In other words, I can only choose 2 of the 4 from Fielder, Votto, Beltre and Stanton. Stanton's injuries and Beltre's age concern me and I'm loathe to keep closers. Muchas gracias!
(Miguel from Venezuela)
Hola Miguel.

The move to Texas obviously helps Prince Fielder a great deal, but I'm not convinced that it provides a complete panacea for his woes at the plate last year. Fielder was a mechanical mess last year, and while I'm sure the Rangers know this and will work on it, he isn't a sure thing. Given the differences in position, I might keep Adrian Beltre over Fielder. It might sound crazy, but Beltre has been an elite third baseman the last couple of years. His age worries me a little bit, but Fielder's off year combined with his physique worries me a little bit as well. Yes, I know Fielder hasn't been hurt and plays a lot but I'm not convinced this trend can last indefinitely.

I might consider Koji Uehara over Adam Dunn, but in an OBP league Dunn in that slot is probably worth it. I am wary of Dunn's age and that any decline in bat speed in 2014 would impact Dunn a lot. He'll be 34 next year, which doesn't sound old but isn't a great age for a hitter of Dunn's profile. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)Jimmy Nelson, Chris Owings, Brandon Workman, Tyler Skaggs, and Johnny Cueto just got traded for R.A. Dickey, Jonathan Papelbon, Cliff Lee, and Adam Dunn in my league. Not a fan of the veto so I wont veto this trade in my league, but just how lopsided is this for the side receiving Lee, Dickey, etc.?
(Gary from Georgia)
Hi Gary:

It depends on if your league has contracts or allows you to slot guys into rounds if you have a draft league. Cueto is a potentially strong keep assuming health and Skaggs has a nice ceiling. I've seen leagues where getting Cueto and Skaggs will net you four players, and it's not like Dickey or Dunn have been anything close to elite. It sounds like this is atypical for your league, though. The answer to these types of questions often depend more on your league culture than anything else. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So if Gallo cuts down on his Ks he will grown into a Jim Thome. I actually don't think that sounds too crazy. You?
(Jim from NY)
I think the most accurate comp is probably an Adam Dunn type. (Jason Cole)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many Dan Voglebach questions are you getting, and which one will you answer? This guy is a better version of Adam Dunn, right? Or were you thinking more along the lines of a fatter Joe DiMaggio?
(John from Chicago)
This is actually the one and only that I can see, though I have about 100 questions waiting for me. He's a lot of fun to watch, and he rakes. The profile is bat only, but there should be less swing and miss and a better hit tool than Adam Dunn. Long way to go before he's hitting 30-plus homers in a big-league season, but the bat is legit.

2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who else did you consider for Comeback Player of the (fantasy) year besides Buster Posey, and what made him your choice?
(Adam from Dunnville)
I tend to think of a Comeback Player of the year as someone who actually came back from an injury, not someone who bounced back from a down year. A player rebounding from a down year is more of a bounce back player of the year, and Adam Dunn would be a deserving recipient of that award. (Josh Shepardson)

Dunn does shots. He gets every fourth one into his mouth. Beckett starts indiscriminately punching people though it hurts slightly less than it would have five years ago.

Letís say 2014 for the ETA. I suppose Houston could push him up in September to get an up-close look, but I donít know if theyíll do that. Iím no good with comparisons, but Adam Dunn (without elite power) is the one that gets thrown around a lot with Krauss.

2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Adam Dunn back?
(Steve N from Delaware)
I like May, because around May people (probably me, even) start acting like the sample size is big enough that we are learning significant information. But, as Dunn shows, an entire season doesn't really tell you anything close to definitive about a player. I think I remember reading Nate Silver once say that a player's preseason projections are more predictive than their actual stats *even at the end of the season*, which is sort of awesome if I remember it correctly. Entire seasons are too small of a sample. We know nothing, ever.

So Dunn. PECOTA had him going .251/.372/.506 before the 2011 season, and I wouldn't bet all that much against him hitting it this year. Though he's at an age when some steady decline makes sense. He's only a month older than Albert Pujols. Did you know that? That's a reliable mind-blower. (Sam Miller)
2012-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Obligatory Pujols question: are there any indications that he might not be completely healthy? I've seen photos where he didn't look himself -- sunken eyes, maybe loss of muscle mass, etc.
(Bill from New Mexico)
There are always whispers whenever a veteran underperforms, but anything I might add would be purely speculative. My personal theory is that knowing he doesn't have Cubs pitching to push around any more has interfered with his chi.

Of course, he's Albert Pujuols, so it's not like he's going to have an Adam Dunn death spiral season. But the signs of a slow decline have been there for a few years, if you were willing to look for them. That's probably what we're seeing, and that's why I hated his contract the moment it was signed.

(PepeShady from StPaul)
I thought it was reasonably well established that what Thornton went through last year wasn't "the yips" but an unsuccessful attempt to establish his changeup.

If I'm a team in rebuilding mode, as the Sox should be (but can't truly be given the $82 million owed to Alex Rios and Adam Dunn), I'd probably churn closers if possible, as the Sox did by flipping Sergio Santos. Get the increasingly expensive Thornton to about 20 saves and flip him, then turn to Crain and do the same. By then, Reed will have more than gotten his feet wet in the majors and will be well-prepared to do the job. (Jay Jaffe)

(Kyran from Whippleville, NY)
As long as the league is shallow enough, Braun, because you can pick up a solid guy to fill in while he's out. Also, see an earlier question, but probably Adam Dunn. He has such a great track record that if he comes dirt cheap, as he has in many mocks, he's just pure profit. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)White Sox fan here. It really stinks to see how far this team has fallen since 2005. We've seen organizations like the Phillies, Rays and Rangers become elite. The White Sox are just boring and seem destined for a bunch of 80-82 seasons for the next few years. What do they have to do to become elite, besides the obvious and fire Kenny Willams?
(Kevin from Chicago)
Luckily for them, theyíre in a winnable division, unlike a team like the Orioles in the East or the Mariners in the West, who really have their work cut out for them. I hate speaking to what kind of front office moves a team needs to make because Iím so far removed from the situation, I donít really know whatís going on, but from an outsiderís perspective, it does seem like there could be someone better than Williams for the job.

On the field, the team lacks a true ace along the lines of rival Detroitís Verlander, though they do have the beginnings of a very good bullpen. 2B and 3B are big holes for the team, as I just donít see Morel and Beckham as starting-caliber players (though they do have the upside to be). A lot of whether they can compete will also hinge on what kind of players Viciedo and de Aza turn into and, obviously, Adam Dunnís ability to bounce back. They should have a pretty good idea after this season where their holes definitely are. (Derek Carty)

(dianagram from NYC)
The Sox have to give Dunn another shot next season, both out of deference to his consistency in the past and to see whether he magically regained his talent over the offseason as quickly as he magically lost it over the last one. With those other two, though, we're getting pretty close to sunk cost time. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-08-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would you do with the A's? Trevor Cahill has been terrible for the past few months. Brett Anderson is likely out for most of next season. Kurt Suzuki has regressed badly at the plate. Their free agent acquisitions didn't help them contend this season and they didn't deal them at the deadline, so there's no space to let prospects audition. Then again, their prospects (Chris Carter, Michael Taylor, Adrian Cardenas, Michael Choice, and Grant Green) all have some major flaws.

Besides moving to a new stadium somewhere? Hereís what Beane said in Tyler Kepnerís piece yesterday: ďSometimes, youíre relegated to buying that lottery ticket.

But sometimes, you donít have a lot of options.Ē Post-Moneyball Beane sounds more and more like post-Super-System Doyle Brunson every day. My advice, though, would be to find a bopper somewhere, since thereís no one in the system ready to hit in the middle of the order. Cahill, McCarthy and Gonzalez should be good enough to make you competitive even with Anderson hurt. Sign Willingham to a reasonable 2-year deal if you can, but donít go longer than that. Cross your fingers that Jemile Weeks and Brandon Allen can be building blocks. But mostly, find a bopper. Crazy thought: find out how much of Adam Dunnís contract Kenny Williams would be willing to eat.

I'm afraid we're witnessing history when it comes to Dunn. I can't think of a batter who's fallen so far, so fast without going out a window. Watching him in this Yankees-White Sox series, he's defeated the moment he steps into the batter's box. Terrible body language. The appendectomy may have played a part but I think his problems are at least 90 percent mental (not 90% half-mental - that's Emma Span's book, which you should buy).

Plenty of pitchers have gone that route, though. David Cone comes to mind. (Jay Jaffe)

(TheRedsMan from Chicago)
Too much, particularly with Cozart, not that I think he's really a great solution. Still, when your shortstops have hit .226/.274/.271 on the season, you owe it to the team to try anything. Speaking of which, if you're the White Sox, do you let Adam Dunn just put up 600 at-bats of what he's been doing? That would be a season for the books. (Steven Goldman)

From the present: Jason Bay, Cole Hamels, Carlos Pena, Scott Rolen, Brandon Phillips, Nyjer Morgan, Neil Walker, Joel Hanrahan, Adam Jones, Max Scherzer, Don Kelly, Chris Perez, Adam Dunn, Matt Capps, Torii Hunter, Kurt Suzuki, Ian Kinsler.

But is it a GREAT Depression well? They're pretty screwed, because 12 games in the loss column is a lot to make up even at this time of year. I've tried to reserve judgment on offensive problems around the league, because weather has been mild and the majors are down as a whole--maybe that affects everyone in different ways. Yet, the Sox have been especially poor. The problem is that while Adam Dunn will eventually straighten things out and Konerko and Trenton should carry on, the rest of them are kind of blah at the best of times. Man, is Beckham a disappointment. (Steven Goldman)

Re. Jay Bruce, just consider these two facts... he's still only 23 years old, and he ranked 3rd in MLB last year in homers by lefty hitters off lefty pitchers. I think he's going to be a superstar (think Adam Dunn with fewer walks but a little more AVG and a few SB's, and decent defense), and maybe even this year. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, I absolutely love what you're bringing to BP. Welcome aboard. Keep it up. A player my son and I both love watching is Dayan Viciedo. He swings every swing like it's the last one of his life, and he wants to be remembered for it. Have you seen him play? Is there a position for him on the field? How much might his all-or-nothing approach limit him? What are the chances someone like Adam Dunn can help him learn to lay off crap and get better pitches to hit 480 feet? Ozzie says he wants to get him at-bats, so he's working out in RF. I hope that means on those days they would shift Quentin back to left. Thanks.
(GrinnellSteve from Grinnell)
Thanks. I've seen him play 3B, which was an experience. He just lacks the athleticism to offer much in the field. I like his bat, and his power is obviously legit, but the approach will suffocate him if he doesn't make the necessary adjustments. If he shows the aptitude for adjustment, his bat could be destructive in the middle of the order. (Jason Parks)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)At this point, would you say the White Sox are the favorites to win the AL Central division? Over/under 45 home runs for Adam Dunn?

Under. He will hit 40 home runs on the dot. I would peg them as my favorites, but I'm not really confident with that. The AL Central is really unpredictable. For all we know, Sizemore returns to form and the Indians are in contention. And the Twins seem to lose players every year and somehow remain as strong. Right now I'd say White Sox 87-75, Twins 85-77, to give an indication of how close I think it can be. (Eric Seidman)

Dunn is already more valuable than Kingman was in his entire career (thanks, OBP!). If he hits a ton of homers like he has (and like I wrote about here!) then I can see it happening.

What would you prioritize if you were Brian Cashman? Would love to hear your insights.
(Eli from Brooklyn)
Cliff Lee's the obvious good idea, and one that Cashman should go for, as well as retaining Kerry Wood. The Nick Johnson signing was a good idea gone wrong, so pursuing a top bat makes sense. The problem is sorting out what kind of bat, and here I think the Yankees could use that sort of hard-hit balls-in-play terror to provide a nice alternating note in a lineup that provides plenty of baserunners. So, not Adam Dunn, but maybe Jayson Werth, while rotating everyone through the DH slot--Swisher, Posada, Werth, Granderson, Gardner--instead of signing a DH-only type of guy. (Christina Kahrl)

The relative virtues--or lack of them--of the current market plays a big part of it, but so does Dunn's continued success.

(KRS from Loop)
At this point it doesn't look like Vitters is ready for AA, much less the majors. DeWitt could play third, and they could use some combination of Barney/Baker/etc. at second base (the Cubs organization isn't known for its lack of second basemen). Is it a GOOD idea? I dunno. It's hard to see a scenario where they contend next year anyway. (Colin Wyers)

(rdierkers from cincinnati)
I don't think so. Dunn is one of my favorite players and he seems to have a good personality on the field, but he's a pretty boring guy. Ryan Howard is very colorful and is great with the media. I think if Dunn had been the Phillies 1B throughout this run, he would be viewed differently, but the same would be true of bigger media markets. I also think if he played 1B his whole career as opposed to going to the outfield and playing some of the worst defense ever, he wouldn't be viewed as a defensive joke and his stock would be higher.

I wouldn't touch Jeter with a 10-foot clown pole in a fantasy league from here on out, and I'd definitely keep Heyward. So your choice comes down to Dunn or Hunter, right? I'd go with the big guy, who's younger and more likely to put up a big season. (Jay Jaffe)

I know the answer to one of those is "Adam Dunn." I'll say he fills the first, and I'll go with the Orioles and Luke Scott for the latter. I'm not sure we can get too crazy about the second category; any player good enough to be a "failure" was probably claimed by a team that doesn't care whether it acquires him or not. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Since I believe the Nats will sign Adam Dunn, I am more interested in the other 2 trades Mike Rizzo made: 1. You didn't seem terribly impressed with the Wilson Ramos trade, although you didn't pan it. Has Ramos taken a big hit to his reputation this year? 2. Folks seem a lot more impressed with Cristian Guzman than we in DC were, although he is a good enough guy. I know the Nats didn't get much for him, but I was surprised they got even 2 AA pitchers. Why the sudden love folks have for Guzman?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
I think Ramos took a hit because he's basically a batting average-dependent producer, but at his age, there's still some room for growth, and I guess I'm more depressed over what this meant for Flores' situation. It was a pretty decent flip, in that Ramos isn't going to be the next Wil Nieves, he could start and not be the worst regular catcher in baseball.

As for Guzman, LASIK may have helped his ability to hit singles more frequently, but it didn't seem to do him any favors in the field. He's an adequate middle infielder with no power, patience, or speed, so getting worked up over him is sort of silly. He's a decent veteran placeholder, but getting him is more of an insurance move for the Rangers than cause for jubilation. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)The White Sox didn't get Adam Dunn, and I must admit that I'm a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic: The Disastros seemed to have actually helped themselves at this year's trade deadline. Discuss.
(Linda Richman from Coffee Talk)
I'm not buying it. At least they might have been able to sell a few tickets 2011 with the last big bits left from their mid-Aughties contenders. They're mid-pack at ~25,000 now, but who's going to buy a season ticket package to see a bad team whose highlights include hoping Brett Wallace can be the new Lyle Overbay? Their record might not be that much worse next year over this, but the deals didn't save Drayton McLane all that much money, the talent received isn't going to help them win, and the product went from bad and ex-famous to bad and boring. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of package could the Nats get from the Rays for A. Dunn?
(mwyche from Silver Spring)
From Mike Rizzo's perspective, it would be Desmond Jennings, Jeremy Hellickson and maybe B.J. Upton. Sounds to me like he wants the moon. I don't have a good answer for this, honestly, not having a KG-like encyclopedic knowledge of the Rays's sytem, but if I were the Rays, I wouldn't give up any top prospects. And I say that as a guy who adores Adam Dunn -- but I'd rather bank on their own guys hitting better down the stretch than give up something really valuable for Dunn. (Ken Funck)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why on Earth would the Nats trade Adam Dunn for Edwin Jackson? If they really can't re-sign him, wouldn't compensation picks beat that deal anyway?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
Banking on compensation picks can be a little dicey, since you might not get what you expect depending on who signs where (see: CC Sabathia and the Milwaukee Brewers). I'm not particularly bullish on Jackson, but he does have stuff and can pitch in the majors now, two important things for a Nationals team trying to build some excitement and a brand. I don't think it's that bad a move, depending on what other teams are offering.

For the White Sox part of this thing, it'll be a shame if they have to give up someone like Daniel Hudson to rent Dunn, when they could just as easily have signed an ever-willing Jim Thome last spring. (Ken Funck)
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Atlanta's offense has looked utterly moribund since the break, and the Phillies are tearing through the NL sans Utley. Time for Braves fans/front office to start panicking?
(atlexile from Detroit)
I would like to see them call up Captain Marvel Jr, Freddie Freeman, and give him a shot instead of the dead-in-the-water Troy Glaus (last 40 games: .187/.325/.306). I guess they weren't about to bid on Adam Dunn, or didn't get anywhere when they did. I don't see too many big bats sliding through waivers, so they may be stuck with internal options and hoping that Rick Ankiel shows a little life. (Steven Goldman)
2010-07-29 16:30:00 (link to chat)Gose flipped for Brett Wallace. Can he even play 1b?
(Silv from NY, NY)
Adam Dunn plays first base, and supposedly isn't even that bad at it right now. If anything, Brett Wallace seems very trade-able if the 1B experiment doesn't work. (Matt Swartz)
2010-07-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Tell us a little about what you did/do before you joined BP. I'd like to know your specialties so I can ask more appropriate baseball questions.
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
It would be pretty to think that I have specialties, but I can't really call myself the "_______ guy." You know, as in the "prospect guy," "injury guy," "history guy," or "contracts guy," all of whom have found gainful employment at BP. But they must be paying me for something, right?

As far as baseball-related jobs go, I did a stretch at Elias, spent some time in intern-ment with a couple of MLB teams (one of which interrupted my last, brief stint with BP), and currently work as a "Baseball Analyst" at Bloomberg Sports (which might sound more impressive at cocktail parties if I shortened it to "Analyst at Bloomberg").

In addition to long walks on the mean streets of Manhattan, I like old movies, video games (though Iím no Marc Normandin in that respect), reading fiction (even the "science" variety), subscribing to site feeds, and collecting external hard drives. And baseball, I suppose, though no more than Adam Dunn does. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-06-23 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is it just me or is it insane that Adam Dunn has been to only 1 All Star game? Are people just undervaluing his production?
(Charlie from Bethesda)
I think it's good to ask - what's the point of the All-Star Game? And what I keep coming back to - it's a chance for fans to see the players they like watching. Now, I like watching Adam Dunn. And I do think fans underrate his bat. But it's hard to say he's one of the three most exciting outfielders to watch in the NL most years. And I mean - as an analyst it's one thing to say, "so-and-so is the player who helps you win the most." And when you call an award "Most Valuable Player" you're talking about value. But for an All-Star? I don't know that I would or should tell fans who they want to see play in a meaningless exhibition. (Colin Wyers)
2010-06-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Following up on "what is Brett Gardner worth", would you consider trading him for Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko or Nick Swisher? I have OF depth...
(Ted from the cubicle)
I'd unload Konerko for Gardner. I mean, is Konerko really going to hit 46 HR this year? He has that Bautista-esque feel of a guy who will fall off in the second half. I think the benefit Konerko would have provided is for those who drafted him and got the brunt of his torrid start, but acquiring him at this juncture -- or keeping him -- isn't likely to add much. And given that Swisher and Dunn are better players than he anyway, yeah get Gardner's steals for the surplus power. (Eric Seidman)

(Ron Lewis from Atl)
Well letís see here. Thereís this guy named Mauer who looks pretty good as a free agent. (Oh, I know, the Twins are probably going to sign him. Other names that I would love to have on my favorite team: Victor Martinez, Adam Dunn, Jayson Werth, and maybe a guy like Wilson Betemit. The big stars in position players mostly have options or are likely to be signed before they get to free agency. The free agent crop next year, isnít a place to find game changers, but there are some good, solid players in that bunch. On the pitching side, CLee and BWebb are welcome in my clubhouse any day of the week. Preferably, every fifth day. I also still believe in Matt Capps, and heíll be available to the highest bidder. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-03-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)I may be jumping ahead a few months, but what would you say the odds are that Adam Dunn is still in DC after the trade deadline?
(Pat from New Jersey)
I'd say 70 percent he's still there. Mike Rizzo doesn't seem like the type of GM who is just going to sell off his spare parts. The Nats want to win as many games as they can to establish some credibility in their market. (John Perrotto)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know he'll be on the Opening Day roster, but what are the odds that Adam Dunn is still on the Nats after the trade deadline?
(Pat from New Jersey)
Better than you might think; remember, most of the market studiously avoided him. To see him moved, it might have to involve an AL contender without a solid DH, and how many of those are there going to be? (Christina Kahrl)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Some of the guys who are "in" Deathklok are incredible musicians like Mike Keneally and Bryan Beller. Former Zappa associates. You think Adam Dunn can ever get his first base fielding good enough to not be awful? He has been quoted saying he doesn't want to DH, and seems better at first than in the OF. It's not like he's unathletic...
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
He just admitted that he's learning the position now, so I have hope, just not a lot of it. He's not in the shape he used to be when he was still a former QB, sadly. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)It seems clear from most of the Nationals blogs that The Constituency is no longer patient, and Mike Rizzo's honeymoon is already over. I have been pretty happy with the moves the Nats made this off-season, but I have to agree that too much depends on the health of folks like Chien-Ming Wang, Scott Olsen and even Chris Duncan. The Nats will be better this year, because they can't help but be. However, is the view of the Nats' offseason more charitable at BP or anywhere else outside of Nats fans' disgruntled little world?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
The kinds of things the Nationals need to do to improve their team just can't be done in a single offseason. To evaluate them on that basis almost isn't fair. I feel the same way about Rizzo. I have a hard time identifying actual things he's done that are that bad. I don't love the Pudge signing and Wang is probably done (but it's a nice gamble). They have to focus on the draft and on international scouting. There's no other path to .500. (I'll hold off on a discussion of Adam Dunn for the next question.) (Tommy Bennett)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)What should I do with Adam Dunn? What type of prospect could he return at the deadline? If he stays could we risk offering him arbitration in an effort to get draft picks? Dunn is making 12M this year and I'm penciling him him for his annual 40HR. 100BB, and 170K.
(Mike Rizzo from DC)
You should trade him. Last year, AL DHs collectively hit .255/.337/.443. That's pretty bad, especially considering Dunn hit .267/.398/.529 last year. I don't know what AL team wouldn't want that. Why Dunn remains in the American League is a total mystery to me. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Dave Cameron has a piece on how more and more teams are looking to rotate players through the DH spot instead of just sticking one guy who can't play the field there. In general, do you like having a big bat at DH or do you think teams should value the added roster flexability of rotating guys?
(John from Haltom)
This is a boring answer, but it really depends on the talent available to you. You have to have a pretty darn good hitter to justify using him there exclusively. But just about every AL team punted the opportunity to nab Adam Dunn and stick him at DH for the next several years. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Adam Dunn at first base? Compared to his outfield play, I feel like he is great. That is, I don't feel the need to cover my eyes when the baseball goes near him. Do you think he's adequate there?
(Charlie from Bethesda)
He's certainly got some value, but he'd be worth more to an AL team. I would trade him for prospects if I could. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What happens to Adam Dunn this year and beyond?
(chaneyhey from St. Louis)
He keeps doing the same thing he's done forever. Hit around .250 with 40 bombs, 120 walks, 180 Ks and unbelievable defense (in a hilariously awful way). (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Granderson deal? Prefer three years of Granderson to two-years of Mike Cameron? What do you think the Yankees' next moves should be regarding LF/DH? Thanks!
(Eli from Brooklyn)
Yeah, that's a big age difference and actually less expensive over the next two seasons. Cameron carries some risk, as just about any loss in contact rate is going to eat his career. I suspect the Yankees, who have solved CF without moving the 2010 payroll at all, will still look for second-tier solutions that don't involved committing 2011 money.

Given the backscratch trade that just happened for Bruney, I wonder if the Yankees could get Adam Dunn; he'd be a good fit DHing mostly but also playing some left field, with Cabrera and Gardner both available to caddy, costs just $10M and is a free agent after '10. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jurrjens + Kelly Johnson for Adam Dunn?
(paulbellows from Calgary)
I'm averaging a login every four minutes.

Mr. Rizzo, leave me alone. I'm on board with trading Jurrjens because he'll being back the kind of player the Braves need, and I don't expect Lowe, Hudson or Vazquez to produce that kind of return. But let's not get silly. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Adam Dunn, 40 homers again?
(Steve N from Delaware)
I'm impatiently waiting, just like you. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Steve, what do you think the Yankees should do for DH next year? Lots of folks are saying they need to keep it open as a revolving door for the older players (specifically Posada), but isn't that a dangerous thing to do? Don't they need to acquire an actual hitter for that spot? If those older players are really going to play so much DH, that means lots of plate appearances will go to inferior bench players. I don't like that at all. Maybe a trade for Adam Dunn makes sense? If not, how about Matsui or Thome on a one-year deal?
(Ralphus from Connecticut)
Keeping it open for Posada would be a swell idea if they had an equivalent bat to put behind the plate. If you're just opening up a spot for someone like Cervelli to be a regular, you're just hurting yourself. Now, say the Yankees traded for a youngish catcher with pop, someone like Chris Ianetta (alright, Ianetta hit .166 on the road this year, but bear with me) who, IIRC, will be arb-eligible this year. Then it makes sense to do that with Jorge, along the lines of the Yankees pushing Yogi Berra to LF from time to time to make room for Ellie Howard. I'd love to see Dunn as a Yankee, but don't think it will happen. In any case, my preference would be a solution along the lines I just suggested -- a DH rotation is fine provided you're not using it as a way to get an inferior bat in the lineup. If it gets a kid catcher in (one who will develop offensively) great. If it gets Austin Jackson in the lineup and Austin can contribute more than his translations suggest, great. If it gives Montero a place to play, great. Those things would all be better than giving another contract to a 35-40 year-old. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Giants win the WildCard with Adam Dunn (or Bobby Abreu) and Orlando Hudson?
(kmdarcy from Portland, Oregon)
That certainly looks like enough of an upgrade given how wretched the performances they've gotten out of their 2B (.242/.289/.345), LF (.261/.331/.410) and 1B (.274/.323/.419) players. Take Hudson away from the Dodgers and you start to close the gap in the NL West as well. For want of a nail...

Other thought about Villalona - it might be time for somebody to revisit the career of Cesar Cedeno, who was involved in a shooting early in his career and never was the same player. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Travis Snider the next Adam Dunn?

(Jacob from Kentucky)

2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you as shocked as I am that Mark Reynolds is a 40 homer guy? What do you see for the next few years?
(Rob from Alaska)
Yeah. I figured he would be a high strikeout guy who would hit 28-34 per season in his prime. I don't know if he'll be a consistent 40-HR threat like Adam Dunn (who literally hits 40 per year.. c'mon Adam, only hit 5 more this yr!) or Ryan Howard, but I think the Dbacks would be perfectly fine with 33-36. (Eric Seidman)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Dayton Moore should trade Soria for a big time bat? Also what do you think KC could get for him?
(Jake H from Kansas City)
I love Soria as much as the next guy but what kind of big time bat are you talking about? Given the fickle nature of closers and how very few actually remain dominant for a long period of time, as well as the fact that a big bat will get 600-700 PAs a year, I don't see this working out. Maybe they can trade Soria for a few good, not great, pieces capable of immediately filling holes, but we're not going to see a Soria for Ryan Howard or Soria for Adam Dunn or Soria for Teixeira deal. The big-time bats likely cannot be afforded by the Royals anyway. (Eric Seidman)
2009-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)in response to the Giants criticism .. I don't think they should mess with "Kung Fu Panda", because he is the best bad ball hitter in baseball right now. And his stats with runners on base this year? .368/.419/.618 But yeah, they still don't have enough offense.
(dianagramr from NYC)
You shouldn't "change" hitters, if they're successful. The Reds tried to shorten Adam Dunn's swing early in his career, and it lasted all of one miserable half a season.

That said, you should try to get other guys that can hit, which isn't exactly Sabean's core competency. (Shawn Hoffman)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Pirates have blown up their roster multiple times over the years, including this year. Mike Rizzo inherited the failed structure put together by Jim Bowden and MLB's neglect before that, yet says he is "building," not "rebuilding." The Pirates are headed for a record string of losing seasons, but that does not necessarily mean they were wrong this year. Still, I was glad that the Nats held onto Adam Dunn and Josh Willingham. Might Rizzo be onto something here? Could the Nats be Steven Strasburg and a couple of FA signings away from a real advance next year? Returning to the .500 record of 2005 would be the first goal.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
I think Rizzo is definitely on to something. I like the Nats' lineup and their young pitcher. Despite the terrible record, they really aren't that far from being respectable or better. Also, I can't tell you how happy I am that Rizzo got the job there. It would have been absolutely criminal if the Lerners turned to anyone else to be the GM after the way Rizzo quickly cleanup up the mess left behind by Jim Bowden. (John Perrotto)

2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would it take for the Giants to pull a deal for Adam Dunn or a comparable bat? And going forward which 3 should they play from the group of Schierholz, Bowker, Winn, Lewis, and Ishikawa?
(juiced from frisco)
The Giants' problem is having too many great minor leaguers, guys it's hard to trade for Adam Dunn. Teams are only going to ask for the best, for the most part, so making a match will be difficult. I really am bearish on Schierholtz, always have been, so I'd play Ishikawa at first for the glove and Winn and Lewis on the corners. I'm not in love with that, but I like those two more than the other two. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would it take for the Giants to get Adam Dunn? And if you were the one making the decision, would you?
(beanpj from Austin)
Yeah, I would. It's a veteran team that can be upgraded at any of three corners. They have the Mets' problem in that every team will want their best guys. The Nats, however, need to focus on quantity and can pick up three, four guys in a deal down the prospect list and win it. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good will The giants be in 2012 Thanks Steve
(Trevor from San fran)
All I can think of is references to an early Rush album, and not my favorite. Do I even have a favorite Rush album? Would I admit to it if I did? I guess I can admit to "Moving Pictures," with honorable mentions to "Permanent Waves" and "Signals," and a friendly wave to the first side of "Power Windows." There's no accounting for taste. Anyway, 2012 is a long way off, and the Giants could be good enough to make the postseason right now with a few tweaks. They presently lead the NL wild card race, but will probably require another bat to hold the spot. I don't know if they have the trading chips to get that bat... It seems like we talk about every team needing to pry Adam Dunn away from the Nats, but were the Giants to get him and stick him at first base or left field, we'd probably see them in October. What happens three years from now is hard to forecast given just how few of the current Jints are going to be important parts of that team - Sandoval, Lincecum, maybe Cain (his contract is up after 2011), and I guess we can assume Buster Posey will be there. I'm not sure about anyone else. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)I want to believe in Jeremy Hermida, but he has exactly one half of one season where he slugged anything worth a crap. At what point is this just not going to happen?
(Bill from MA)
I rarely suggest this, but Hermida might need to swing more. He seems to let a lot of hittable pitches go by. That works for Adam Dunn, and a lot of other guys, but maybe not so much for the guy hitting .250 and slugging .367. (Joe Sheehan)

2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Historically, do good players on bad teams tend to get overvalued by the home fans, since they are the best player on the team, or undervalued, since the team as a whole is still middling and not competitive?
(HuffWade from Chicago)
Bill James made the argument for undervalued, prompted, IIRC, on the Yankees dumping Mike Easler after the 1986 season (which turned out to be much ado about nothing). I think he was right -- just look at the Reds and Adam Dunn and their focus on everything he couldn't do while missing the things he did better than most players. Look at Dick Allen and the Phillies. Ralph Kiner and the Pirates. Maybe the right answer is that they become undervalued by their organizations in the "We could have finished last without you" sense. You never can tell who the fans will fall in love with -- as I've remarked here many times, my friends used to drive me almost to the point of violence with their affection for "fan favorite" Alvaro Espinoza.

2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I don't know what Rob in Alaska has in mind, but as a fan of a small-market and only occasionally competitive team, it is hard for me to imagine how it can be thrilling to root for a team with all the advantages, which is always expected to be on top. (NY signed *three* FA's this year greater than any *one* MN has signed in the whole FA era.)
(collins from greenville nc)
Yeah, but Minnesota could have done a whole lot more, and that's without making any assumptions about their having greater financial flexibility than they cop to. For example, Jason Kubel is exactly the kind of player the Twins should NOT be signing. Adam Dunn is getting $20 million over the next two years, Kubel is getting $7 million. If they'd signed the former and foregone the latter, they're only down $13 million. That's just off the top of my head. (Steven Goldman)

Baseball-wise, is it wrong to wish my favorite team (Twins) would be a little less successful so as to learn from their abundant mistakes? They do the same thing every winter, yet are just good enough to think they don't need to change their approach.
(Patrick from MPLS)
I'd like to hear what their excuse for not making a run at signing Adam Dunn is. Had they non-tendered or traded Jason Kubel, they could even have considered the salaries they gave him each of the next two years (roughly $3 million and $4 million) as a discount on Dunn's dough. The Twins hit the fewest homers in the AL last year and they didn't walk either -- what a difference a 40-homer/100 BB DH could make to their outlook. (Steven Goldman)
2009-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)"I'd like to hear what their excuse for not making a run at signing Adam Dunn is" We have Carlos Gomez, who even though he runs around like a chicken with its head cut off, plays defense!

We have Mike Cuddyer, who does magic tricks in the clubhouse and throws hard! We have Jason Kubel, who showed grit by coming back from an injury! We have Jason Pridie and Luis Matos in AAA, and they both can run fast! We already have the worthless Delmon Young, who I'll trade for a bowling ball! Why add another guy that won't play the Twins way?

(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
I'm pretty positive guys like Dunn will have a job by the time it matters. They are just going to have to take a one-year deal for less money than they thought they would make in order to do so. I think if you're desperate for a tiebreaker in a close keeper race, you could use it, but I would still be afraid that would come back and bite me when he signs with someone in an offensive park or something.

2009-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where does a player like Adam Dunn land in this mess of a marketplace? I can't think of any good fits off the top of my head (maybe Anaheim?) where his skillset meshes well with the team's needs and likely tolerances...
(Aaron from YYZ)
It's difficult to believe that a 29-year-old who's reached 40 homers in each of hte last five seasons won't find a home eventually. Slotted at first base, he'd be a decent play for the Nationals, who could undoubtedly use his thump. I've argued before (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/web/COM1148908/index.htm) that he would make good sense for the Dodgers in the event they don't re-sign Manny Ramirez, since they haven't had a player top 20 homers since Jeff Kent in 2005. Though he lacks Manny's charisma, even moving into the least hitter-friendly park of his career he'd be an imposing middle-of-the-order presence, and he's hardly a major step down from Manny defensively.

2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Adam Dunn going?
(HonusCobb from Wayne, NE)
That's a great question that some of us were kicking around in the press room yesterday. I'll say the Nats if they don't sign Teixeira with the Mariners also a possibility. (John Perrotto)
2008-12-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Adam Dunn signing?
(Steve from NJ)
Lots of AL teams could use him--I kind of like the Indians sneaking in late to grab him. They could float him in three corners and treat him as Hafner insurance as well. (Joe Sheehan)

(dianagramr from NYC)
Hi Diana... not a chance, not at that price. He should and will cost more than that, and I'm not sure he wants to sign a "contender's discount" deal, no matter how long he was in Cincinnati. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Where would Adam Dunn be most appreciated: Washington, Kansas City, S.F.?
(basicslop from albuquerque)
Giants fans might appreciate a certain Bonds-yness in the production, Royals fans might dig the personality, and Nats fans might just enjoy seeing a major league hitter. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)you act like dunn isnt a valuable property..isnt adding a 40hr/100 walk guy worth a lot these days?
(JROB4349 from jax,fl)
He is. He's a good player now. However, he's a player with old players' skills, one who may not be able to play left field too far into his thirties. Being a good player now doesn't necessarily make you a good free-agent signing. I don't think I want a 33-year-old Adam Dunn at $18 million. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Why is nobody interested in Adam Dunn? If the Mets are after Ibanez, who is a lefty and plays bad defense, shouldn't they also be after Dunn, who is better offensively and maybe even defensively?
(big baby from nj)
That is a great mystery and I don't have an answer. It's going to be quite interesting what happens if the Reds decline his option and he becomes a free agent. I wonder what the market will be for him? (John Perrotto)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)So what's the deal with Adam Dunn? Why are teams so put off by him? Is he really that bad of a guy?
(Brent from Raleigh)
He's actually a good guy. I don't know why there is so little interest. I really don't. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)What is the story with Adam Dunn? From everything I've read, there's overwhelming apathy (if that's not an oxymoron) toward a 28-year-old guy who generally puts up 40-HR, 100-RBI, 100-RS, 100-BB, .380-OBP seasons, and whose defense seems to have made some improvements. Why are media types and general managers so unwilling to see Dunn's prodigious talents and instead focus on the things he does poorly? It really seems like we're in a bizarro world every time I read another thing about how there is no interest in Dunn, how he might not even be offered arbitration (as Joel Sherman once reported in the NY post). It just seems absurd to me. Thoughts?
(BDesrochers from New York, NY)
I'm with you. At worst, he's better than Xavier Nady on a true talent basis, though on a value or short-term basis, you can argue for Nady. I'd think that Dunn would have value, but over and over, there's just not much interest. Makes me wonder how he'll fare on the free agent market, especially given no room at the inn for both Texas teams. (Will Carroll)

2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts about Chris Davis so far? Adam Dunn with less on base skills?
(ew from Madison)
That guy can't play in the majors, if so. There should be some development left, which would make the difference between him being Paul Sorrento and, say, Paul Konerko. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where does Adam Dunn finish the year?
(Carlos from CA)
I wish the Padres would come out of nowhere and pick him up, then sign him to an extension. I know they need defense in that expansive outfield, but they also really, really need more bats than Brian Giles and Adrian Gonzalez. (Marc Normandin)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is punting average a viable strategy in head-to-head? There are values to be had in terms of hitters (Encarnacion, Cameron, Jacobs), but I'm wondering if you leave yourself vulnerable to your whole team slumping.
(ted from the cubicle)
I'm not a big fan of punting average, just because usually the guys that do well there are your best players in other categories. You're right - there's some value with the low average guys that do well in others (see also Adam Dunn, Rickie Weeks), but yeah, if they all go bad at the same time, then you're probably stuck in all the offensive categories across the boards. I think punting is still a good h-to-h strategy, but moreso with saves and/or SB's. (Jeff Erickson)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see a good fit for Adam Dunn among any of the contenders? Rays, Jays, A's, Twins?
(Jonathan from Cincy)
I kind of like the idea that he'd go to Tampa Bay, because it might be the sort of place he'd re-up with, and it would be a signature statement of sorts by the organization. But remember, he's got a limited no-trade clause, and can only be dealt to ten teams; for tax reasons, the weather, and that sort of stuff, I can see how Tampa Bay would be agreeable to him, not to mention joining a fun team in the hunt. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Cito Gaston...
(brian from brooklyn)
For those who haven't caught it, the Jays fired John Gibbons--was there a conference call over the weekend or something?--and hired Cito Gaston to manage out the year. To their credit, the Jays did manage to not just hire a coach on staff, which had been the mistake the last two times they did this in the Ricciardi Era. (If you've fired your manager midseason three times in seven season, your processes are wrong.) Gaston inherits an excellent pitching staff, good defense, and terrible offense that won't be adding Adam Dunn anytime soon. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, thanks for the chat. What do you think about the rumors that Griffey will be dealt back to the Mariners, or that they'll possibly try and land Adam Dunn? Does Triunfel's recent suspension lead them to dangle his name to get someone like Dunn?
(Paul from Tacoma)
Sticking with the Mariners, the Griffey idea is a silly one. Junior's not hitting (.250/.335/.369) and not worth the prospects, particularly in a system that already traded its best/readiest one for Erik Bedard. Balantien's only hitting .219/.265/.453, but he's got four homers, while the rest of the team has just nine since his recall.

I could maybe see going after Dunn because he's a much better hitter at this stage, but he's a big guy with old player skills, which kind of scares me when it comes to a contract renewal and probably isn't worth the price of just a rental.

The bottom line is that the Mariners are 18-27 and going nowhere fast. I don't think adding one hitter is going to change things, particularly at the price either of those two hitters is likely to command. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Along the same lines as the Tamp Starters question, should I be looking to move one of Chris Young, Justin Upton, or Mark Reynolds? Not only are they all on the same team but they are all right handed making their value run that much closer together on a day to day basis.
(Forden from Alberta)
I'd move Reynolds. His strikeout rate is bothersome, and that's coming from someone with an Adam Dunn t-shirt in his closet. (Marc Normandin)
2008-02-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Indians have the prospects to pull off an Adam Dunn deal? Doesn't that make absolute perfect sense? Is Shoppach for Dunn a pipe dream?
(Louis from Akron, Oh)
He's not the type of player the Indians typically pursue. He would, however, be a good fit for them.

The Reds seem likely to keep Dunn until they know they can't win in 2008. When they do decide to deal him, I can't help but think they'd want to do it out of state. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)Marc, which of the Phillies big sticks, Utley/Rollins/Howard, is most likely to see regression this year? Do you think any will get even better? Gotta know which token philly I'll have to overdraft this year to make sure I represent...
(Will from New Orleans)
I'd have to go with Rollins. Utley surprised me with a season that was probably in line to be better than the one before it. Howard = Adam Dunn for the most part, so his line is fine to me. The thing with Rollins is that he hit 20 triples...I'm fine with the homers--his HR/FB was actually a tad lower in 2007 than in 2006--and BABIP. 20 triples though? You'd have to think some of those will end up in outfield gloves next year, though that won't impact his performance too much from a fantasy perspective or even for the Phils. Since I had to choose one of the three though... (Marc Normandin)

First person to came to mind when I read this was Ryan Zimmerman. You could make an argument, I suppose, about Adam Dunn being the second bopper, but Zimmerman is a much more complete player. (Steph Bee)

Well, yes, assuming they don't bring back Floyd and Baldelli. I'm not sure who that DH with power might be. Adam Dunn? (Will Carroll)
