Cameron Crowe wrote about them. Pacman Jones makes them reign. And Kraft sells them in packages of 8, 16, and 24. Yet, Adam Dunn still can’t manage to hit them. I’m speaking of singles, of course.
Adam Dunn is a great power hitter. No one denies that. He has eight seasons of 35+ home runs and is on pace to do that again this year. But something Adam Dunn is not good at getting is a single. He has 16 right now. That is one less than the amount of home runs he has. Somebody send Adam Dunn the Tom Emanski videos, please.
Based off of projections, Adam Dunn will amass 41 singles this year which is eight less than the number Barry Bonds hit in 2001 – a major league record. That year, Bonds was walked 177 times, including 35 times intentionally, so we can give him a pass (no pun intended). Adam Dunn is projecting to only 72 walks. The AL record for fewest singles is 53 – by Mark McGwire, 1991 – so Adam has even more records of futility to avoid.

Chris Sale is a really good pitcher. The 6’6” hard-throwing lefty out of Gulf Coast College (you remember that school, right?) was 17-9 last...
Having finally run into an outstanding stretch at the plate, Adam Dunn probably would have preferred playing the last couple of days.
The slugger hopes to keep swinging a hot bat and lead the well-rested Chicago White Sox to their fourth win in five games Friday night at Minute Maid Park when Chris Sale takes the mound against the Houston Astros.

I remember the day when bobblehead days at stadiums were so sacred that people were camping out like a day in advance to land Ichiro’s first bobblehead and my dumbass showed up at 10 AM in Cincinnati for a 7:35 PM start time (that will clue the die hards that it was at Old Riverfront Stadium) just to land Adam Dunn’s first bobblehead.
The Reds beat the Padres 9-0 that night,...
