Wow. And now I get docked by Steel, for supposedly "calling him out". LOL ... this is the same guy who use to send me private messages constantly, even threatening me because we have different opinions. If this is what this site has become, and apparently it has, then that's pretty sad. Because this use to be the best Reds site on the internet.
Believe me, I won't comment on Dunn anymore.
You are sitting here arguing production Terry, but you're looking at Batting average. Batting average is certainly not a good indication of production. Look at OPS. A much more telling stat. If you're getting on base, you're producing. And as Rosie pointed out, he gets on base about what.. 48% of the time? When you get on base, that creates the opportunity for a run. Bottom line, look at OPB+SLG, or OPS as a better indication of how well Dunn produces. You can also look at Runs Created. Dunn has about a .950OPS. Tell me, how many 25 year olds have put up that kind of OPS over the course of a year? Theres not many.
Look, I'm no stat head man, but I try to have a basic understanding of them. Batting average is not a good indication of overall production. I'm trying to help you out. I dont think anyone is critizing you for having a different opinion on Dunn. I think its something else. Why dont you re-read the Rosie's post.
