Default Adam Dunn is the Biggest Sox Bust Since.....

Yeah there's still time for him to turn things around, but where does he rank as of today?





* Yes, I know Albert Belle wasn't a "bust" for the Sox

Bobby Bonds.

Really, though, the Dunn situation is unprecedented in franchise history. Albert Belle was a big bust early. However, he wasn't nearly as bad and then he hit like crazy.

I'm not ready to call Dunn a bust yet. Yes, he's been bad so far this year but he's still got multiple years left on that contract to turn that around.

Now if he doesn't turn it around...

Can we wait more than 2 months before declaring this 4 year contract a bust?

This. Everyone chill.

Now, I'm not saying he shouldn't have been pinch hit for on Saturday (because he should have), but he's got to keep starting against lefties until he comes out of it. The track record is there. It's way too soon to call it a bust.

Two months into year one of a four year deal. He's been godawful but isn't it a little early to call him one of the all time busts? If this continues through year one and year two then calling him an all-time bust is appropriate. Right now he's been the opposite of what we all hoped for...

Dye and Konerko have put up terrible half seasons before. It happens. I'm not gonna write Dunn or Rios off yet. Just like to be able to trust these guys with 1 out and risp to get a run in.

Hopefully Dunn will heat up with the weather. Dye didn't have a great start in '05 and then look what he did in the rest of '05 and '06.

Alex Rios,who was horrible his first two months in Aug and Sept in 2009.
But then he was good for the first 5 months of 2010.
Now,he has been bad the last 3 months in a Sox uni.

bottom line, Dunn is here for 4 years...long time to turn it around.
why even start these kinds of threads 2 months into a 4 year contract?

Then why is he on the list?

Albert Belle's 1998 season is probably the best offensive season ever in franchise history.

The only two at that level are 1994 Frank Thomas or 1920 Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Why indeed. A lousy human being maybe, but hardly a bust with the White Sox. Imagine having a player on the current team tearing it up like Belle did in 98. Everything would be different.
