On MLB’s fourth Opening Day this year, Adam Dunn tied an Opening Day record with his eighth career Opening Day homer Friday against the Rangers.

Because it’s still Opening Day somewhere.

Dunn’s blast off Colby Lewis tied him with Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. for the most Opening Day homers. Dunn’s actually gone deep on just six Opening Days, but he had two homers in the openers for the Reds in both 2005 and ’07.

    I felt sorry for the poog guy last year. Maybe he will at least make it back to average.

    Almost has as many hits as last year.

    On pace with Bautista, huh? Lets hope we get to keep saying that. Hang in there Adam.

    He always juices before the first game. By 162, he’ll be lucky to swing a bat.
