yes soriano does strikeout alot but has a much more consistent hitter then dunn. soriano is one of the players in the game an even though he strikeouts out alot, he finds away to bat around 300. dunn will strikout like 3 timems in a game lol. soriano's hitting skills are much better than dunn's. you can say the same thing about sammy sosa, that guy strikouts alot, but still hits around 300 batting average and 40 homers. the problem is that dunn cant keep that average around 300, therefore means that hes an inconsistent hitter, i mean dunn hit 215 last year, i mean come on, thats not very good.

True, but last year was an abbreviated year. Two years ago he hit .249-27 for his first full season. He is only 25, and most players pull it all together around 27. So for me, I will stay on the Dunn bandwagon till he hits 29. If he is still struggling THEN you can call him Mr.Burnitz :-o

We all agree he's about as streaky as streaky gets, right? So why not leave him on your bench and wait out two 50-K months and put him in when he starts clubbing homers again?

Personally, I love streaky hitters because you know when they're hitting and you know when they're not. So you only play them when they're hot, pick up the stats, and let them wait out the cold months on your bench. Dunn is a great example of this. He's on my bench now, and when he hits 10 homers in a month again, be it in June or August, he'll go right back in.

As soon as he gets hot and you are dying to put him in your lineup, he'll get cold again and cost you.

Fact is, predicting hot and cold streaks is tough to do.
