Chicago White Sox’ Adam Dunn Is Struggling
Adam Dunn needs to move down in the Chicago White Sox batting order as he continues to squander opportunities for the White Sox to generate offense out of the clean-up hole.
Let’s put this into perspective, sure it’s only 26 days into the season however Adam Dunn is hitting .097 at this very moment. He could jump back into the triple digits in average as the game is currently in the 5th inning. Take a look at that again, .097!! Words can’t even describe the horror I am feeling in the pit of my stomach. Memories of his 159 average and 11 homers still haunt me from 2011. He bounced back so nicely in 2012 to hit 41 homers (with a 204 avg and 222k’s) but at least he was producing something of value.
I thought he was back to his automatic 40 homer ways and erased 2011 as a freak in the wrinkle of baseball! It is still early so it’s not time to bench him yet however a move down south in the lineup at this point sure doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Let him get his stuff together and let’s get someone who will put the ball in play at the #4 slot.
At this point to go along with that 097 average he has 28k’s in 70 ab’s, that a 40% k rate, right about where he was last year. People will forgive a 40% K rate when you are knocking 40 over the fences. However when you are batting UNDER 100 it looks like a glaring beacon just flashing on and off!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha he just homered! He is now batting a red hot 110! I guess it is now my job to write a negative article about him every night, it seemed to work some kind of voodoo magic. If that’s what I have to do to make him hit, I accept that responsibility.
