I don't know, look at the number of stiffs that took the field for the Red Sox last year...

It is amazing. What is more amazing is that the Sox offense will go as far as Adam Dunn will take it.

Ouch. Had no idea things got that bad in Boston last year.

Maybe the back spasms in LAA had a real impact- over the last 28 days- he's hitting .244 with a .945 OPS-

It's great to see Dunn go through this hot streak, but let's not kidd ourselves, it's just a hot streak. he's bound to get cold again and everyone will go back to wanting him cut. Dunn can be a valuable asset to a team. The issue is that he cannot be relied upon to be #3 or #4 hitter for a team hoping to contend.

Does anyone know where to find any information on how many hits the defensive shift has cost Dunn?

Did opposing teams shift on him as much when he played in the NL?

I see this thread has died down. Any minor leaguer can do better than Dunn!

Releasing him was always a bad idea because he does go on these hot streaks periodically but then he has much more prolonged streaks where he looks lost. The guy has been with us for two whole years now and I think has a .180 something average with us, I'm not sure off hand what is OBP or OPS is but I believe his OBP is under .300 and his OPS is probably in the low 700s. My own hope is that there is some team desperate enough for offense (Pittsburgh maybe? I don't know) that they will take a gamble on him and we can trade him for something, we'd have to eat a lot of his salary though.

Why would they get rid of the only hitter in our lineup besides Rios and to some extent De Aza and Gilaspie with a pulse? Ramirez , Flowers , Peavy, back the truck up. I like Peavy, but if he comes back and looks ok , and they get offered anything for him, he has got to go. Floyd too. Peavy can't and probably will not ever again stay healthy.

Floyd is a free agent after the season so in Hawk's words, "he gone..."

As much as we all would like to see Dunn released, it ain't gonna happen, at least this season. Jerry might eat a partial year, or send cash in a final-year trade sometime next season.

But that doesn't mean the Sox should just roll over. How about sending Flowers and Viciedo down and bringing up Phegley and Danks? Dunn has had a few good ABs this week and his walks are up, but if he drops again, bench him.

The message that players can turn in such a poor compete level and performance at the plate and in the field and keep their "play every day" jobs has to change for this team to move forward.

I'm thrilled beyond belief when Dunn goes on one of his hot streaks. I'm usually happy when he just hits the ball. If he can continue his present hot hitting I'm hoping the White Sox will be able to move him to another team. I don't care if we don't get anything for him. Just get rid of him. We can use the money for some other free agent. Morales of Seattle would look good in a White Sox uniform next year.

Somehow getting rid of Dunn, Konerko, Peavy, Ramirez, and even Rios would be such a windfall - as long as the return isn't Nestor ****ing Molina or Jhonny Nunez. Man, KW sucked sometimes.

That just wasn't his strength. KW had a lot of luck getting good performance out of players he picked up from the scrap heap and getting good value for prospects. He rarely seemed to do well when acquiring prospects - selling high really seemed to be a foreign concept to him.
