It is a common phenomenon for free agents to struggle after signing with their new team.
I wouldn't call what Dunn is doing struggling. It isn't even remotely close to that good.

We may not be able to "send him down" to the minors. But, at least "send him down" in the lineup . . . to 9 against the AL, and to 8 against the NL. Ozzie is getting a free pass from most of you who buy into "let's just keep sending him out there, what else can we do." Even if you accept that, do you really want him hitting 3, 4, or 5 right now? He can't even make contact.

Heard someone on the radio this morning say that at 32 Dunn can't spend
the off season sitting in a deer stand and never pick up a bat and still
expect to perform. They said Mark Beurhle already figured this out.

Never hunted a day in my 65 years, so I did a Google on ''Deer Stands".

Disagree Dunn the Bum

This guy is a complete loser. He is the worst free agent signing in the history of sports. Very doubtful that he will finish the season hitting over
.180. He is stealing JR's money and should do the honorable thing and resign.

I wonder what the lowest season BA is for a batting title eligible player in the last twenty years or so. Dunn's is at .165 now. He'd have to go on a hot streak just to catch Dan Uggla at .175 for lowest BA this season.

They will have to rename the Mendoza Line.
