The same reason peeople will chase after Prior year in and out. Or kept drafting Griffey high for years after it was obvious he could not stay healthy. Dunn is what he is. A guy that will hit homers and hit for an avg between 230 and 260. Draft him accordingly. If he hits 260 something, he is not a bad player to have around as the damage to the avg category is not too bad. One of those .232 seasons though make him a a lot less attractive a fantasy OF.
People ahve been overpaying for Dunn for years in hopes of that one big year. It will come but I am not sure if he can achieve one of those seasons and stay up there for good.
Maybe after this down year, he will be a bargain at the 07 draft but... I doubt it.
4th, 5th, 6th round every year.
It boggles the mind.
it is almost like, "At what price home runs?"
We had a running joke around here for a while, that Adam Dunn would be the first player in history to have 50 Runs, 50 HR's and 50 RBI's. That was back when people were claiming Preston Wilson should be a 1st rounder. That group learned. Why can't the Dunn lovers?
