I understand that. I just have a hard time calling a hitter patient when he K's 200 times a year. Maybe the amount of pitches that he sees will matter later in his career but I don't see a big difference between striking out in 3, 4, or 5 pitches.
If I was pitching to a feast or famine guy like Dunn and I had him 0-2, you better bet that the 3rd pitch won't be anywhere near the strike zone.
