The year. I know that it looks really bad. And it is really bad right now for Adam Dunn. I would hate the fact that for the contract that Dunn signed that Dunns bat isn't producing more runs or contributing offensively. A good batting coach would be working on Dunns swings or something. I don't know. I'm just throwing a guess around. If Adam does get it together WSI'ers here will be singing a different tune and understandably so. You really have to feel bad for the guy in some respects. It's not like he doesn't hear the boos. I think that at this point its just as hard for him as it is for the fans to watch him take swings.

Either way this is an indictment of Walker.

If Walker is not working with Dunn, why not? Does he have to strike out in every plate appearance?

If Walker is working with Dunn, he's doing a terrible job.

I couldn't agree with you more. If Walkers not doing his job he should be fired and the Sox should get a decent hitting coach who can look at Dunn's swing and see if there is something that can be fixed.

I'd rather play right field out than have Dunn on my team. What a pathetic pickup.

IMO there is no one even close. Dunn is easily the biggest bust ever. Plus he dosent even seem to give a s**t about it. Only plays for the money, not stats, not wins, nothing. A total bum since he made that quote in Arizona in my book.

If I had to name one close though, I would say Todd Ritchie.

"The Blind Squirrel" now 0 for 8 in this series. Even if players are having a bad season, most are remembered for getting a big hit in crosstown games.

I was really hoping he could have one or two bombs this series, because it is a showcase one. If he did it would have went a long way to getting himself and the fans back.

I don't see why they couldn't come up with some fake injury, send him home for a couple weeks, and see ya after the break.

I think they're trying to shame him into early retirement.

I've said it before but I have to say it again, he's George Bell.

Are you kidding? I'd be THRILLED if Dunn produced a season like Bell had for the Sox in '92. He won't come close to that, and he's already got almost as many K's as Bell had for the whole year.

Bell actually led the Sox in RBI's (not Big Hurt) in 92 with 112 and I think he had something like almost 70 RBI's in 93 despite missing a decent amount of time with a leg injury, if memory serves.

Nellie's right, I'd take either of those from Dunn right now myself.

For everyone who was "it's only may" "it's only June"-------
The summer solstice has passed, now can we call him a wasted signing and a bust?

Yep- I don't blame Walker- the blame goes with KW.

He's a career .230's hitter vs. LH's, w/RISP and strikes out 200X/year. With all the "hackers" we already had in this line up- we did not need another one. This "slump" is becoming epic- but even his career norms are not that great for a DH.
