Phunky's Official Adam Dunn Bandwagon Thread!!

Post by phunkadelic »

Fact: Adam Dunn will have a great year this year.

My Projections:

.272 AVG/50 HR/116 RBI + 13 SB

Looks pretty good to me. With 1B/OF eligibility in most leagues, and not being taken until late, late rounds in drafts this year, you've got yourself one heckuva sleeper that can be a potential keeper for 10+ years.

I will be back throughout the season to update his stats.

BTW, spring training stats currently have him at:

.353 AVG, .882 SLG, 3 2B, 2 HR (one off Schilling), 3 R, 5 RBI

through 17 AB. (*Can't find BB or OBP stats)

while i'm almost with you, i have to say that every post below mine will vehemently disagree with you. i like the donkey. i think he'll bring it around. unfortunately, we have some serious cincinnati homers in my draft, and he'll go in the 13th round. i wouldn't take him until the 15th (12-team non-keeper, h2h, mixed league).

Swarmee's "crrrrazy strategy of the year" is to punt batting average. Due to the glut of good power hitters available late in mixed leagues (Burrell, Dunn, Castilla, Valentin, Konerko), drafting by punting BA may pay huge dividends this year. You can grab some top quality starters and relievers and a solid catcher, and then grab the poor BA power hitters. You should run some of the pitching categories, power, and make sure to draft speed. Since BA is pretty variable, those guys could all rebound and you could still finish middle of the pack in BA as well.

Wow, that wins the "so crazy it might just work" award. First idea as far as cat-punting goes that I actually might agree with.
Way to go ;-D

That said, I've managed to do okay in my drafts with a lineup that bats just shy of .290-.300, so I'm not convinced it's neccesary. One thing for sure though, you have a much better chance of killer pitching if you aren't sweating hitters so much the early rounds. And this makes much more sense than punting saves :-t

I believe Dunn's a lot more likely to bounce back than Burrell.

50 HR's isn't outta the question. But becoming a better overall hitter would be more beneficial to him and his team. If his current rate continues, he'll become another Russell Branyan vs. a possible Hall of Famer.

how about we let him break 30 hr at least once before projecting 50. i love the kid's abilities and know he's better than last year, but come on.

Madison, I'm well aware of the thread. I was the main voice of reason off and on throughout that thread.

I think it'll be fun to have competing threads O:-)

Dunn was injury plagued most of last season. He's healthy this year. It should be a fun time proving Wrveres wrong this year.
