Rodney, okay. That ERA is nice. Four unearned runs though.
Incidentally, how in the world has Adam Dunn managed to play 1700 games in the wild card era without making it to the postseason?
Vernon Wells is over 1600, no other active player has more than 1500.
If Mr. Wells had been better the past few years, perhaps he isn't on this list.
Who sponsors the Delivery Man award?
Also BBRef rates Dunn as essentially the worst defensive player of all time. He's obviously not a good defender, but I think the numbers there are overkill. In 2009 he had an OPS+ of 144 and BBRef has him as below replacement level. That seems like a stretch to me. Also, Dunn was surprisingly competent as a first baseman this year.
