Adam Dunn signed a two year twenty million dollar contract yesterday with the Washington Nationals. The deal became official today meaning the Nationals now have a guy they can build their team around. Dunn will wear number 32. Sure Dunn strikes out a ton and stinks at fielding but he hits a ton of home runs and that is what the Nationals needed and wanted. Dunn will join third baseman Ryan Zimmerman in the middle of the order. Dunn is like Babe Ruth he either hits a home run or strikes out trying. Now they obviously are very different besides that but name ten other major league players who either hit a home run or strike out. Last season with the Reds and Diamondbacks Dunn hit .236 with forty home runs, 100 RBI’s, two stolen bases, 122 hits, and 164 strike outs. His carer stats include a .247 batting average with 278 home runs, 955 hits, 278 home runs, 672 RBI’s, and 59 stolen bases. Dunn can play first base and the outfield and at those two positions he has a .974 carer fielding percentage. 2009 will be Dunn’s ninth major league season. He spent eight and a half with the Reds and half a season with the Diamondbacks after the Dodgers traded for Manny Ramirez. Dunn will mostly play first moving last years starting first baseman, Nick Johnson to the bench. Dunn could also play a little left and right. Josh Willingham and Elijah Dukes are the teams starters in left field and right field respectively. Dunn is a one time all-star who made the game in 2002. He went zero for one in that game with a walk. Dunn is 29 years old and I would rate this move a ten out of ten. Sure he isn’t the best player but like I said before the Nationals needed a bat and they got one.
