In Sammy's first full season, where he played 153 games and had 532 AB's,he had a .233AVE, 15HR's, had 33WALKS and STRUCK OUT 150 times!!

By comparison, in Dunn's first full season last year he played in 155 games and 535 AB's, he had 26HR's, 128WALKS, and whiffed 170 times with a .249AVE.

B-)


Based on those facts I like Dunn even less. It shows that while Sammy didn't know the strike zone, he learned it and improved. Dunn, based on his walks, knows the zone but is swinging through a lot of strikes.

Here are my projections for Dunn this year:

.255 avg
80 runs
51 hr's
100 rbi's
11 sb

Kearns is the better player, but Dunn is a beast. If you can counter his avg with a few .300 hitters, you got yourself a stud.

let's not forget that one of the causes of this home run frenzy is the new park he plays in, so I think the home runs will continue to come. I mean, is it a coincidence that the Reds have homered in 19 straight games?

Either you never saw Kingman, or you dont know the numbers between the two. The only comparision is both were very tall, with long swings. Kingman was a out machine, career 302 oba. Dunn, at age 23, is already has a career 391 oba. Thats not even in the same ballpark. Its rare for such a young player to flirt with a 400 oba. So Dunn wont have a big average, neither did Reggie, or Sosa, or Mac, and they did ok.[/quote]

Relax people, it was a joke. Yes, I was referring to him as Kingman in that:

A. Very tall w/ long swing
B. HR/K machine

to compare people, they don't have to be the same in every single instance.
