Well, July has come to a close and Dunn has posted the following numbers:

BA OBP SLG OPS

.348 .450 .576 1.026

And we say FANTASTIC! woo hoo! He cut down on his K's from the previous month too!

and yet, what was the result of this? Here are the rest of the numbers:

AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB HBP SO SB CS

92 17 32 6 0 5 19 15 2 25 4 0

In June he posted these numbers:

BA OBP SLG OPS

.221 .368 .537 .904

The result in July was one less RBI, 4 fewer HR's 2 fewer runs scored.

In May, a truely abysmal month for AD he posted this:

BA OBP SLG OPS

.212 .328 .535 .863

Yep another low BA, yet strangely only 10 points lower than June's but his production was in the toilet. only 13 runs scored. Again, here are the rest of his May numbers.

AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB HBP SO SB CS

99 13 21 8 0 8 15 17 0 26 1 0

In April Dunn posted the follow line:

BA OBP SLG OPS

.265 .432 .614 1.047

His BA is almost 100 points lower than his spectacular July, but was July a better month? I think not. Here is the rest of the story.

AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB HBP SO SB CS

83 25 22 2 0 9 17 25 1 33 0 0

In 9 fewer AB's, Dunn scored more runs, hit more HR's, had a much higher SLG% and drove in only 2 fewer runners, all while striking out 8 more times, and Walking 10 more times.

In the long run, IF Dunn can maintain this kind of hitting production without the accompanying power loss, he's going to be a legend, but make no mistake about this: regardless of whether Dunn hit's .220, .260, or .340 Dunn is productive if his OBP is above .365, and uber productive if it is above .400.

And I'll take Dunn's April every month. It projects to silly numbers. BA MIGHT make a difference in his production. OBP definitely does. K's don't matter one whit.

And knowing all this, I was still eyepopping excited to see Dunn's july numbers till I looked deeper. I'm still excited, but more about April than July.
