Good to see someone is recognizing Adam Dunn for the season he’s having:
It hasn’t mattered where Adam Dunn has hit in the batting order this season.
The Reds left fielder has batted second, fourth, fifth and sixth in the lineup, yet has given Cincinnati the same offensive production he has always offered: a high on-base and slugging percentage to go with big home run, and RBI totals.
And for his efforts, Dunn has been selected as the Reds’ nominee for the eighth-annual Hank Aaron Award.
Since 1999, the 25th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record, Major League Baseball has recognized the best offensive performer from each league with the Hank Aaron Award presented by CENTURY 21.
Past recipients include Barry Bonds (three times), Alex Rodriguez (three times), Manny Ramirez (twice), Albert Pujols, Todd Helton, Sammy Sosa and Carlos Delgado.
Plus, Dunn is cooler than Bill Brasky.
