I have Dunn in 2 of my 3 leagues and I'm in first in both of those, guess he's not that much of a cancer. As long as he pulls his average up into the 260's like last year he's a 3rd or 4th round pick quality player, especially in a league that counts OBP or OPS where he is a 1st or 2nd round pick.

I agree with BB here. To me, Dunn is the most underrated player out there because people see his BA and label him as a bum. They neglect the approx. .400 OBP that the guy has. He works deep into counts looking for a pitch he can handle - hence why he winds up with alot of K's and Walks. If you are a believer that OBP and SLUG directly correlate very well with Runs Scored (which statistically they have been proven to do so), then how is Adam Dunn a bad hitter?

BB: I wouldn't say Dunn is a player you build a franchise around, simply because he isn't a great defensive player or clubhouse prescence. But I WOULD say he is the kind of guy that you build an offense around.

Why is he not hitting in the 2 hole?
