Dunn finally hits a multi RBI homer

Postby Quaker » Sun Apr 18, 2004 2:34 pm

It's about time. That 6 HRs and 8 RBIs, still a weird ratio.

He's also hitting a cool .419

Batting crown for Dunn this year? :-b

Haha, I don't feel too bad for Dunn owners....at least he's hitting HRs...multi RBI or not, they're still HRs.

I bet you he hits close to .300 this year and every other year after this one....

He is so good. His previous batting averages were a mirage due to bad coaching....

RBI or not, I still think you got more than you could've hoped for when you drafted him after the 14th round.

I read a blurb about this that previously, there was some sort of committee approach to coaching hitting w/ everyone standing around the batting cage putting their $.02 in. Now, they have a single hitting coach-- Chris Chambliss-- who handles all communications w/ the hitters. Sounds plausible anyway...

I think that it might have been the SI baseball preview? I can't find it on their site though.
