Yes thats right, Mr Dunn is dunn for '03.
This is Adam Dunn's career stat's.
. AB .. R .. H . 2B HR RBI ..BB .. K .SB CS .AVG OBP SLG
980 179 238 50 65 157 203 321 27 13 .243 .379 .499
Now at first glance you say, not all that bad. That is alot of power. I can handle a .243 BA. Hell, it's Adam fricking Dunn. He just mashes the ball. It will hurt, but it will be ok. But understand that this .243 BA is held up by a .300 BA before the allstar break in 2002. Amazingly, he hit .190 after the break. Now how good does he look?
Hang on, lets dig some more ....
Since 2002 BA.
August .160 (106 ab)
September .179 (84 ab)
March .224 (spring training 67 ab) (I'll Toss out the 0-4
he went opening day, March 31st.
April 2003 .253 (hope?)
May .193 (nope)
June .129 (OMG)
Well He must have a good OBP. I mean Papa Boone bats him leadoff, Right?
Since 2002 OBP
March (can't find)
April 2003 .382 (Hope?)
May .274 (nope)
June .372 (Hope? .Don't count on it)
After last year, I made a vow. No way I carry this guy next season.
It's kinda like, At what price homeruns and Rbi's? The way I figure, all of my roster spots are valuable. Offensively, absolutly nobody should "hurt"
me in any categories. You would have to have another batter on your team hit .400 just to compensate for the "Damage"
he does to your BA.
So, in 5x5. He helps in HRs, Rbi's. (thats a given) He doesn't really steal. Only four this year. That is 1 every three weeks so far this season. Run's? Oh yeah, almost forgot, lets look.
Since 2002 Runs
August .. 14
September .. 7
April 2003 .. 20 (hope?)
May .. 12 (nope)
June .. 9
So by my math. He helps in 2 categories, and he doesn't steal.
He scores an occasional run, "outside of plateing himself". And then proceeds to destroys your BA.
That is a 1.5 category player in my book. Andy Fox is also a 1.5 category player. Hmmmm. How many of you have Andy Fox on your rosters?
So I ask you,
Can someone please explain how Adam Dunn has any value???
