Dunn hit for a good average in the first half of 2002 because he was incredibly BABIP lucky and his strikeout rate was *only* 25.1% at the time, which for him is very good, but for everyone else would be very poor (25% K rate puts you in the bottom 5.5% of players since 2000 with at least 1500 MLB PA's).
