Re: Get rid of Adam Dunn while is value is high
While acknowledging Dunn's talent, potential, and homerun prowess, Gwynn basically said that Dunn's strikeout rate was unacceptable. He said that he needed to hit the ball where it was pitched and use all fields more, and if he would do this, it would only make him a better hitter. The comment came up that he was trying to make Dunn into a singles hitter, as he had been, and his comment was basically that you couldn't make someone with that much power a singles hitter and that it would probably cut down on his strikeout totals and enhance his overall power numbers. He again emphasized that Dunn would only become a better hitter by using the approach.
