Nothing in common but this trust
I'm like a minus, she's like a plus
One going up, one coming down
But we seem to land on common ground
When things go wrong we make corrections
To keep things moving in the right direction
Try to fight it but I'm telling you Jack
It's useless, Opposites Attract
Back in June I started a human league entry for Adam Dunn, but I never posted it because it sucked. In fact, none of my human league ideas were working, and I couldn't pinpoint what I didn't like about them. So I shut down the category until I could figure out exactly how these profiles were failing to satisfy my needs.
Five months later, my standards have apparently tanked, because this Human League entry doesn't look so bad anymore. And, what with all the recent talk of trading Dunn, I figure I probably better take my opportunity to post it now. Besides, it's sort of fun to remember back to June before all hope was entirely lost for 2005. Sigh. We were so naive back then.
The Human League series contains profiles of Reds players to cover the stuff that matters to me about baseball players. I don't embarrass myself by trying to write any deep statistical analysis: there are plenty of competent people doing doing that already. The Human League profiles are just supposed to give beginners a sense of what a guy's about as a person and a player.
That being said, it's also important to note that this information is based on nothing but Internet research and my own observations. I have no intention of being impartial or exhaustive, but I do welcome your additions, corrections, complaints, hell send me your shopping list if you want to.
Today, let's take a closer look at Adam Dunn.
Till next week, keep on kickin' it with animated cats.
