Dunn POW, from Oakland

Adam Dunn named National League Player of the Week.

It's his second NL Player of the Week Award (5/6-5/12, 2002). He hit .500 with four home runs, eight RBI and 1.042 slugging.

This is my first trip to McAfee Coliseum, nee Oakland Coliseum, since the 1990 World Series. It was a lot nicer then. The luxury-box filled addition that closed off center field sort of ruined the feel.

"There is no there" quote about Oakland is true. But I'm staying in San Francisco, which is quick BART ride away.

This guy whiffs 85 times, espn breaks the trade rumors, and here he is, player of the week. That trade clause will be looking like mere minutiae to a few teams if he keeps this up...

You don't play up to potential to help this club win or hit late to throw a bone to those clowns in the 'pen but you slug over 1.000 when other teams are watching

Maybe we actually get the type of high-quality pitching we demanded from the Angels outta this fiasco and rid ourselves of "It's Dunn, just half-***". Still can't see 3 players but 2 good arms or an arm and an infield glove sounds fair...(evil laugh)

Shameful, but all too regular with the pros. So I won't be shocked if Justin Smith has a career year comin...

Dunn back to 0-fer form, Reds still in Losing mode, Ahhh, it's just so much fun to watch professional baseball, Cincinnati style. Thank you so much Mr. Castellini, where ever did you find such a wonderful manager and GM?

Re Oakland, I grew up in that region, and have been to that ballpark numerous times. There's a reason why it's nicknamed the "Mausoleum", especially with Mt. Davis looming over the left center field wall.
