We stop focusing on Adam Dunn and think about who the Sox are going to get in the first round of the draft!

On the plus side, I read on the internet that there's no way he can possibly continue to be this bad. I think that was on like May 8th.

Well, then let's just continue to say he'll suck all year.

i didn't know if he was serious or not. I'm so used to the

showing up. I get it now. I just wonder how many more "It's June 1st" arguments we will endure. Probably 3 more: 2012, 2013, 2014.

He has a real shot at the MLB record for K's in a season...

There were a lot of red flags from the Nats fans about "Big Donkey", who struck out 3 times last night and is on target to set the MLB record for K's in a season. "Dunn wants 4-years/$60 million: If true, it is absolutely insane for a 30-year old masher who strikes out just as much as he puts the ball in play. His defense is below average to average at best and the National League doesn’t DH so why the Nats would pay for one, I have no idea. Thinking about it, he might actually be able to get that sort of deal– but not in D.C. He shouldn’t." And "The Nats have already experienced the Masher Illusion (i.e. Big Donkey) in Alfonso $oriano in 2006. The Cincinnati Reds did too, for years, but they were able to free themselves, not be anchored down by one player and now look at them: relevant, young, exciting, competing".

There's a lot more negative stuff than this, and KW is a donkey for signing him, as a lure to get PK to resign. Now that the Sox are stuck with "BD" for 3.5 years, the only positives I see is he seems to be croching down more when batting, and maybe Thomas can work with him to be a big man who can be a disciplined hitter. He should probably come back next year in much better shape.

Dunn sure has been tough to watch this season. But, I'm not ready to totally give up on him. He's always struck out alot, so those haven't really surprised me.

I still think he'll figure it out in the second half and end up with 80+ RBI and 30 or so HRs. Fearless predictions, I know.

That will mean nothing if the Sox are just playing out the string by then.

Biggest bust since either Jake Peavy or Alex Rios. Take your pick. Or maybe Beckham as a 1st round pick.

Add Pierre to the list of underperformers and it is pretty easy to understand why this team is so damn disappointing.

There's still the second half of the season for Dunn to turn things around. But having said that I do not believe that Dunn is the biggest best ever. I would have to say that I voted for Nick Swisher. I haven't completely lost hope yet that Dunn hasn't had his best days as a Sox player yet.

As of today?

I'd have to say he's the biggest one ever. He is the most expensive FA we've ever signed (or close to it, I didn't fact-check) and his performance is so bad that most of us would rather have Dayan.

Second half of what? The year? The contract? His life?

At this point I'd rather have Kotsay.
It's hard to believe that Dunn could be this bad.
