I think he was being serious. Usually comments like yours (All Dunn does is...) sparks a huge massive outcry about how he is so much more than that. I don't think BRM was knocking you or your post in anyway. He was just anticipating the onslaught.
Back to the topic. You do make good points about the ability to hit a HR. I would use Dave Kingman as my example for only being able to hit HR's. He hit 30+ HR's in seven ML seasons, and didn't even get on base 30% of the time in four of those seasons. All that guy could do was hit HR's.
About Deion Sanders: I personally don't feel that you can bat .304, .276, .288 + .277 (1994 w/two teams) in three straight seasons in the majors based on speed. The guy was a freak of an athlete. He has great hand-eye coordination and incredible quickness. Willy Taveras seems like an all speed type of guy, but he only K'd 80+ times this year in 600+ PA's, so that isn't bad either. He didn't make contact with his speed.
