Kearns is better at this point. People say that Dunn will get better because of his age, but so will Kearns.

Kearns definitely. I wouldn't even draft Dunn at all.

I agree, Dunn absolutely killed me last year, never knew when to play him or bench him, won't be taking him this year.

I had both last year (it was a bad year), and Dunn singlehandedly killed my BA. I don't think I could ever draft Dunn again, but I'd be happy to pick up Kearns in the mid-late rounds

I agree Kearns is the way to go. I don't think you'll find many Dunn fans out there.

Go with Kearns.

If you are in a league that uses OBP instead of BA, then you might consider Dunn.

The problem with Dunn is that he's got a hole a mile wide in his swing. He strikes out all day long. If anybody knows any high strikeout guys who were able to cut their K #'s down to where they were just average in strikeouts, let me know because I'm curious.

Currently Dunn looks like the 2004 version of Dave Kingman or Jack Clark. But things have changed. There are so many guys that hit for power these days that hitting 35 jacks and batting .240 really isn't all that great. Dunn's in dire need of a good, patient hitting coach.
