Dunn-less Reds Have Less Bite

Dusty’s Cincinnati Reds are a mere shadow of their already meager former selves with the absence of notorious Cub killer, Adam Dunn.  The big redheaded slugger hit a whopping 38 home runs against the Cubs in his career with 7 of them coming off of Carlos Zambrano alone.  The guy just plain feasted on Cubs pitching, particularly at Wrigley Field where he hit 23 of his 38 bombs.  His trade to Arizona will help the Cubs …until playoff time comes!

Along with Dunn, the Reds dumped Ken Griffey Jroff to the White Sox leaving the team with few power options and lots of kids in their lineup.  Joey Votto hit 3 HRs in a game against the Cubs this year, but that doesn’t happen every day. We’ll see what magic Dusty has for this team in transition.

      The Cubs are the best team in the National League. What really needs to happen, is they need to peak and play their best baseball in the post season. Floundering into the playoffs would blow big time.
