View Full Version : Dunn's OBP IS inflated after all!!

Dunn's OBP is inflated by HOME RUNS!! How can that count for his OBP he's not staying on base. If you subtract all the home runs this year from his OBP it drops to around .300 which I know people on here have said is horrible. I'd like to see some of you guys that are big into stats (I didn't say stat heads) defend that. So until some of you on this board stop hiding Dunn behind these phony numbers then well, I don't see how you can respect yourselves.

Well I knew everyone was thinking it, so I decided I was going to be the one to come right out and say it. If you wish to thank me but fear reprisal, then you may do so privately. I won't name names.

And RBIs off home runs shouldn't count either.

I thought it was funny, but with some of the crazy people here, I actually believed you, haha.

Me too. I thought it was a joke until about halfway through.

Many times I have wet my undies because Dunn came to bat as I was heading to the restroom and I made the mistake of holding it and waiting to see if Dunn could get a single.:)

I thought this would give it away, I should have been more over the top I guess.

This is a pretty ridiculous observation. Guess everyone else's HRs should be cut from the OBP record as well, right?

Bizarre notion.

HRs count; if they didn't they would be banned.

Well, ya fooled me... because I'm not in the least bit surprised that someone/many would feel this way.

Psst...TB, Razor Shines is intentionally being absurd. It's humor. :)

(Edit: I see ya' already figured it out. And you're right. I think we've seen similar words posted as truth before...hmn...who would do that...)

Dunn also once went 1,085 plate appearances without a sacrifice fly, a stat reviled endlessly in many media outlets. A closer look reveals that Dunn had 65 plate appearances in that stretch with a runner on third and less than two out; in those appearances he reached base 28 times. Thus, Dunn was castigated for posting a .431 on-base percentage in a particular situation over a two-year span, the criminal. :)

But most of those were walks, so the runner didn't score. He should have chased balls out of the zone.

Sincerely,

SO what about walk off game winning HRs?

What do they do for OBP?

Well you know it and I know it, but the biggest thing is what about all the other guys who didn't get a chance to get any RBIs? I was always taught by my parents to think of others, it's obvious Adam wasn't, and he probably doesn't have a soul either.
