Think JD would unretire? Heck, frank would be light years ahead of our production at dh. Who woulda believed we would be yearning for dh by last years committee?

Dunn does not deserve to play, I don't care how much we are paying him, he is killing us with 3 strikeouts a game. Bring the Tank up and let him DH.

Dunn really has defied the Law of Averages with his performance this year. Like most fans, I keep waiting for him to break out of it -- I choose him as my PTC nearly every game thinking that I can help him with good karma!! There's no way he can sustain this level of ineptness all season, can he?! As for the poll, I voted for Jaime Navarro He was really horrible and kind of a turd to boot.

I read something a couple of weeks ago quoting unnamed MLB scouts saying Dunn "looked good" and "the hits would start coming soon." Both then and now I thought it was pretty obvious he looked terrible and he would continue to rack up strikeouts. Maybe I'm qualified to be an MLB scout, at least an unnamed one.

To make matters worse we have DV tearing up the IL. I wonder how he feels about this situation. I'd wager dollars to donuts he would do better than Dunn right now.

Albert Belle??? Maybe you need to look back at his numbers from the two years he was here.

Adam Dunn....can't hit. He's more lost than Bad Carlos ever was.

As far as a historical comparison, I guess I'd go with David Wells. Wells was supposed to be an ace, but he went from bad to hurt. Dunn should be hitting the DL with some ailment in a couple weeks if the pattern holds true.

We are all disappointed with his production so far. But I think we should give Adam a standing ovation for support. Don't you think he is trying? The money and playing time has been committed. Maybe a gesture of support may help him relax.

I really wanted wells to do well. I have the first ball he used at the cell in a sox uniform. I caught the first foul ball of the game off the second pitch. One of about 15 I have caught.

Relax? As I said before, someone needs to get him drunk one night. Either that or slip him some exlax.

I'd like to give Dunn more time, but given the list in the poll, I had to vote for Koch. Although he wasn't listed, I would like to nominate Royce Clayton. That guy was terrible with us. Older WSI posters will remember his "The Choice" nickname.

His first year with us was a disappointment, but his second was awesome. He still holds the single season HR record for us.

He was until someone or something totally messed up his swing.

I honestly think we'd be better off sending Ozzie up to bat. Oh wait, we've got Pierre for that.

Actually, Gordon was doubted by some. Plenty felt in college that he generated a good deal of his power from the hitch in his swing which would not play well in the pros. Personally would have taken Smoak but those 2 were a coinflip at that point.
