Dunn done?

His numbers dropped off quite a bit in May.

What a streaky player. I'd say he could end up with a .250ish average and 35 jacks. Of course that sounds more like Greg Vaughn than a phenom.

I would say he goes closer to 50 HR's with a .250 Avg and .450 OBP 8-o Those numbers are just not right.

No offense, but predicting 50 jacks for Dunn is insane. If he hits 30-35 with a .240-.250 average, thank your lucky stars. Even that, I think is a bit lofty considering he's never even hit 30 in a season.

He's already got 12 so I think he'll be around 35-40 IF he can stay healthy. It wouldn't surprise me a bit to see that BA dip to the 230-240 range.

I don't think there's any question that he has ability to hit 40 jacks this year and 50 in the future. Just beware of his Mendoza-line avg and his K's.

Read the post more closely. I said he goes closer to 50 HR's than 30-35. That equals out to early 40's in homers which he is quite capable of given he has hit like a turkey for a month already and has 12 jacks in just one quarter of the season.

Main question is... can they keep playing him if say they are still in the race and he is approaching record number of K's? Especailly with Pena, Freel, and a few ok prospects in the wings?

No doubting he has the power of a young Bonds, however he has the contact of Jose Hernandez.... sucky thing is he's a guy that hits thre in a game whens he's on your bench guarenteed...

"Ability"...doesn't mean jack. It's what the guy does on the field.

And you can't be as streaky as Dunn and hit 40-50 bombs, plain and simple. He's going to need to level out these slumps.
