Adam Dunn or Jeremy Burnitz?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Bobblehead » Tue Mar 29, 2005 10:30 am

Burnitz has a career .254 BA and has hit over 30HR 6 times so I would not call last year a career year. Of his 6 30HR seasons only one was at Coors Field.

Dunn has a career .249 BA and has hit over 30HR once which was last year.

I am not trying to say that Burnitz is the better choice. I am only saying that they are comparable.

I have a sneaking suspicion that either Adam Dunn kicked Bobblehead's dog in the liver....or Bobblehead is, in fact, Jeremy Burnitz.

Possibly both, now that I think of it...

Burnitz has been in the league 14 seasons.

Dunn has been in the league 4 seasons.

Those 10 extra seasons might have a little something to do with Burnitz's better numbers. Maybe.

This thread is encouraging! I have been thinking about trading Dunn because of his K's, but after seeing all of this, and similar insight to Dunn in a topic in the Trade Forum, I am chaning my tune. What are you guys projecting from Dunn this year? Including K's.

If you honestly think Jeromy Burnitz is going to be that good, be my guest. He'll be trash in Chicago. .250 avg, 25-30 HR. Dunn will bat .260-.270 and hit over 40.

Good comparison. I'm not willing to draft Dunn because of his average. Burnitz is much better value if you really need homers, but even with a late pick I'd rather get a guy who hits at a higher clip. I think his average will drop this season...but he could easily register 35 homers.

burnitz will get something like he has in his recent non-coors years - .250, 70 runs, 30 hrs, 85 rbi - i am throwing out 2002 as a pathetic aberration

dunn should only improve so i will predict something like .260, 100 runs, 40 hrs, and 110 rbi - and those are fairly conservative compared to what some others might say

to me that explains the 15 round difference

I love Burnitz to death. He's just one of those guys who makes you want to root for him. I hope he does well this year but trying to compare him to Dunn is loco. }:-)
