You compared apples to oranges with Dunn and Ichiro. Ichiro is a BA-driven run scoring machine, and Dunn is a power-driven run production machine. That's not a compelling argument, it's a fallacious comparison. And I've got nothing against Ichiro, who's probably the finest leadoff hitter in the game today. But he and Dunn are completely different players, and all teams need some combination of the two to be successful.
