Wily Mo Pena may have more power than Dunn.
Never saw him BB 100 times in a season though.
You seem to think taking a BB is not a repeatable skill, but a circumstance of other things. You are incorrect.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
