I really think he is LA bound this season. I can't see them sticking with Ethier/Kemp (who they just recalled this morning) all season long. And they need a power bat in that lineup. Besides that, nobody else really makes sense... unless the Astros believe that they can still win it this year...



kemp could be that bat, he mashed last year when the dodgers actually let him play ...

"While it's early on in the trade deadline season, there are no teams showing interest yet in Reds power hitting left fielder Adam Dunn. Despite Dunn's strong OPS and home run totals, no AL teams currently have a need for him as a DH and NL clubs are likely turned off by his defense."

I would like to thank Dave for bumping this thread up last week, as we no longer have to see the game threads from last September on the top of the archive forum. smile.gif

This was the most frustrating topic ever to read.

"Post stats if you want to argue."
"Ok, try Dunn's 1.100 OPS"
"Dunn isn't a producer, he bats .215. Miguel Tejada, now he's a producer, he gets an RBI almost every game."
"Thats because he has people to drive in, Dunn doesn't."
*Ignores post, one week goes by*
"Wow Dunn is HORRIBLE!"

The bottom line is Adam Dunn does exactly what you expect of him he strikes out a lot but he also hits 40 Home Runs a year and drives in a 100 runs per year I'd take him any day of the week, I think he's one of the most underrated players in baseball. Not to mention the guys on pace to have close to 600 home runs by the end of his career.

He's hit 238 Homeruns in his last 7 seasons which is an average of 34 HR a year

in 2001 he hit 19 HR in just 66 games
in 2002 he must of had an off year because he hit just 27 HR in 158 games
in 2003 he hit 27 HR in 116 games
in 2004 he hit 46 HR in 161 games
in 2005 he hit 40 HR in 160 games
in 2006 he hit 40 HR in 160 games
in 2007 he hit 40 HR in 158 games
and up to date in 2008 he's hit 27 HR and we've just got back from all star break so he will most likely hit 40 or more HR's

If he continued at this pace of 40 HR's a year for the next 10 years and he's 28 now he would have around 600 HR's.

And the Record for being struck out the most times in a career is held by Reggie Jackson with 2,597. Is he a bad player ?

i dont get what the big deal is. he's got a career 380 obp and 520 slg, thats a 900 ops. he just trades a bunch of popups and groundouts for strikeouts, and trades a bunch of singles for walks.

Looking at that list, its pretty incredible that Mays had more than a 1000 fewer strikeouts than Reggie Jackson and finished with 660 homeruns.

Which is what makes Mayes the greatest living ballplayer, and maybe the best to ever play the game.

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.

I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be.

Yeah, but he did do steroids. They can keep him out of the Hall, they can vilify him, but he carried a mediocre franchise into contention year after year, and all those Giants' wins still count.

Just saw this, and totally agree. MLB allowed it to happen, steroids changed the game. Justthinking "what if". Can you imagine what Mays would have accomplished with the same stuff his lil godchild was on?

not too much more i'd think because you have to remember, his peers would have definitely been on it as well.
