Methodology is the way you make a decision. Your decision is based on, presumably, you watching X number of games. Justin's is based off of a variety of sources, both qualitative and quantitative and is vetted.
I've watched lots of games. I think they are both bad outfielders. Both of them have horrific range. Neither of them can make a play out of their zone. Dunn also struggles with the ones inside of his. Griffey is pretty solid on those. That would be my qualitative assessment, Justin's numbers aside. I disagree with you even when using my own eyes. That an incredibly exhaustive analysis bears it out is great.
I suppose you could tell me who the best hitters are by watching some games too, completely ignoring any data.
