That was more of a "collective" comment based on the team results. Dunn's always been productive -- and I've been a fan; used to honor him with my screen name here -- but he never maximized his run-producing potential or carried a winning team. Despite his numbers, there was virtually no market for him via free agency. In hindsight, I don't think anyone would have seen that coming for him or Kearns 6 or 7 years ago.
