His line drive rate is up from the last two years and his batting average on balls in play is way way down. That means he's hitting the ball better than ever and getting more unlucky than ever. I'm not saying he'll be Albert Pujols, but I expect him to be a top 30 hitter for the rest of the season in a mixed league.


April of 2005 was the last month he hit over .280

7 months without hitting over .280, and only 1 month out of the last 9

Yet out of nowhere, he's gonna hit .280?

Out of, he's hitting the ball better than before. Bold prediction, but that's okay.


I am sure that that .280 prediction has a little to do with the fact that you just traded for him ;-7

Other way around, my friend.

Can someone talk about how crappy Dunn is again and every day for the rest of the year?

This Dunn owner thinks he must be reading the nay-sayers after last nights game ;-D

i think you need to get off the magic dragon :-°
look for more along the lines of a 240-250 avg the rest of the way and ending as a top 50-60 fantasy player overall. good with homers runs and rbis.. but not a good player to have in a roto league :-t i hate him as a fantasy option

In a league like mine that counts twb as well he is a 4 category stud but I can see why in a traditional 4x4 or even a 5x5 league he wouldnt be as wanted.

Every homerun he hits gets me 4 bases plus all the walks helps drive up his value immensely. :)
