Same old, same old

Same lineup as yesterday. My guess is Ken Griffey Jr. is still ill.

Why is Adam Dunn batting second? Enough already..stop the Madness !.

He is on par to strike out near 200 times in 600 at bats.

New name for Adam is ADAM DUMB. There is no player I can remember on the Reds with more raw power to never ever adjust his swing to benefit the team and himself.

What happened to all the talk of him modifying his swing/approach in Spring training? Guess Not.

Along the lines of what Marty was saying last night, Dunn is what he is. Yes, we heard that talk of him changing his swing, but we have been hearing that every spring. Managers and coaches have come and gone and the result is still the same. I suspect we will see the same thing out of Dunn for years to come. It is becoming obvious that the problem is not the instruction he is receiving, but that he does not heed the advice given to him.

John, for the love of god, is there any way in the world we can trade Dunn??? He has GOT to go. I think we can all handle Hamilton being in left and Griffey manning right for another year or two until Jay Bruce and Drew Stubbs are ready to take over. But Dunn needs to go ASAP before his value drops even further

Yeah, let's trade the guy that will lead the team in runs scored, runs batted in, homers and on base percentage. Yeah, that makes sense.

Sure, he's not the .350 hitter we saw the first two weeks of the season, but he's not the hurtin' back strike out only hitter we've seen the last few games.

Dunn will get on base over 35% of the time, score more runs than anyone else on the team and drive in over 100 runs this year.

Dunn's a keeper,
