Lifetime avg: .248
Last year's avg: .247
And everyone thinks he's underpaid ? Guy cannot even get a hit 1 in 4 at bats on average.
I know batting average isn't that great of a stat to use, and admit that Dunn has solid power, OBP, and OPS numbers, but his average is just downright embarrassing.
If Dunn is worth 13 Million per year, what's Pujols worth? $25 Million? How about a pitcher with a 4.75 ERA? $12 Million per year? Guess I'll be the first one in this thread to say that he's being paid enough. $18 million over two years is just fine, and quite frankly is more than I'd pay him.

Only 14 of his 114 BB's were actually intentional, but just because a particular pitcher doesn't give him what we consider to be a traditional "intentional walk," doesn't mean that pitcher has any intention of pitching too him. If that makes any sense at all.
WittyC wrote:I'm sure I won't be able to find it, but I saw a quote of his last year where he said something along the lines of being frustrated that his average was so much lower in the bigs than when he was in the minors, and how he felt trapped as a home-run hitter. He went on to say that his contact numbers would go way up in '05.
