Now of course some of this is just talent. McGwire could probably drive a wider range of pitches than Dunn could. But still, I think it's reasonably clear that Dunn could have stood to be a little less patient early in the count.
Imagine and entire team of Adam dunns and Matsuzakas. they could rival cricket matches in game time.
I hope he can turn it around and maybe you know, bat over 230 this year, but I doubt it. Even with his 3 true outcome skills his slash line is garbage for a full time DH getting paid 11 million a year.
madvillain, would it make you happy to learn that Dunn is actually getting paid $15 million?
What I find remarkable about Dunn is that he reaches two strikes in 56% of his PAs.
When I sold my comics collection back in the summer of '81 to help finance my move from Arkansas to Arizona for grad school, the only issues I kept were my two top childhood favorites -- a couple of dozen Sgt. Furys & about half of Not Brand Echh. (In retrospect, I should've hung on to Hulk #181, X-Men #94, Amazing Spider-Man #14, FF #s 48-50 & several dozens others as well rather than letting them go for what averaged out to 14 cents per, but so it goes.)
As I have said before, Adam Dunn has a plausible case for the best "bad team" player of all time, by which I mean the best player to have on your terrible team as you drive for the #1 overall pick.
Makes me want to open up a Satan museum and require $666 million in funding.
