THe only guy that may be worth droppng Bradley for is Jenkins, but of course Jenkins has a major injury downside, so its a toss-up between his brittle body and Bradley's cukoo clock head.
The other issue is that they are somewhat different players in terms of how they help you--if you need SBs, stick with Bradley.
Yes, this is Roto league with the scoring being:
R H 1B 2B 3B HR RBI SB K E AVG OBP SLG
As you can see, there is a lot of focus on hitting. Dunn will kill me in AVG and K's as well as OBP
BA and K's yeah he'll kill you, but he has a .379 career OBA. Which is good, not bad. And definately won't kill you. And you never know, he might smarten up and learn to hit properly instead of waiting for the perfect pitch and coming out of his shoes trying to hit a homer. He could be awesome, but he could have another year like last year. I'd say it's worth the risk, and he shouldn't be a FA.
And also, for those ignoring him simply because of his BA, Juan Pierre's lack of HR hurts you more than Dunn's bad BA. And Pierre's RBI hurt you almost as much too. Of course Pierre led the league in steals, but I'm just putting it in perspective.
