Brian Anderson, Rob Mackhowiak, Alex Cintron.

Sorry, 2006 hurts me.

Since Jayson Werth seems to be a bust with the Nats (we'll see) how about exchanging busts, Dunn for Werth? I'd do that in a minute, even though Werth is as overpaid as Dunn. I think the Nats may regret paying Werth instead of Dunn, and could go for a do-over. Both will eventually revert to their normal production, and I would rather have Werth.

Werth has a much worse contract.

I'm beginning to wonder if there is something physically wrong with "The Big Sombrero".

Another 4 Ks today. 100 Ks in 231 ABs and 67 games played and hitting .173.

Ugh. To answer this poll's question right now, I don't think I can remember a veteran starting player who joined the White Sox and stunk this badly over an entire half a season. Absolutely brutal.

Seriously, is his vision okay?

I agree with you. He should be given a complete physical.

I'm serious though. I would not be surprised to find some physical problem with him. I didn't think he was gonna be the answer for the Sox and I felt they way overpaid for him but I never expected play this bad.

There could truly be some issue and I hope it isn't serious but if they haven't done it yet the Sox should.

He's swinging the bat just fine and I never see him grimace. He's just missing the ball by about 6 inches with every swing. He's also not swinging at fastballs down the heart of the plate... I think he's afraid to swing if its not the pitch he's guessing on. He is lost.

Even when he's swinging like he should - he'll just be a .240 hitter and it won't fix the offense. He'll still not be the guy who should be hitting behind PK. If anything - I'm hoping he can just get good enough to where he can sac fly some runners in - something noone seems to be able to do on this team.


Viciedo has to come up. You have the guy with the OBP. You have the MVPesque hitter - its time to get the guy who just smashes the ball hard and puts it in play. Rios looks to me like he figured it out. Could be contenders if this is true.

I said this in the game thread yesterday but I watched the game here in the DC area on the Nationals network Friday & Saturday, giving myself a weekend off from Harrelson. But also to get their perspective on Dunn. They said even in BP he was swinging with much less force than when he was in Washington, he even missed on several BP pitches. When he did make contact, it normally was simply popped up into the cage. Like he's just up there waving and hoping it the bat hits something.

They also hinted, more like danced around the fact, that he was looking a little heavier than when he was in DC. To a man they all thought he would snap out of this sooner rather than later but one wonders as it's nearly July and he looks totally lost up there.

Either way, he's a dead hole in the lineup.

Ozzie today in the newspaper stories when asked about Dunn said "he has to play" then explained that because of his salary the White Sox have no choice. Ozzie also said that all he can do is keep playing him and hope he comes out of it.

That's pretty much it. I mean we have him for three more seasons. You can't just bench him.

You have to hope that this first half of the season has been an aberration and that he'll come out of it before his contract is up.

Yes, plus, I know it's hard to imagine watching him play, but his potential if he ever figures out what he's doing is sky-high.

Maybe you have to move him down in the lineup, but from an owners/managers perspective, you have to play him every day to justify his pay. Looking at his rather large picture in the Tribune sports front page today, he doesn't look like he's in shape or the picture of health. Maybe he has health issues since the operation. I don't think Pete Ward was the same player after his car accident, and on the north side Hee Seop Choi wasn't the same player after his collision with Kerry Wood. One really doesn't know at this point for Dunn.
