    Ramp, I don't know if you read baseball Prospectus but they mentioned your boy Burnett in there as an example of a young pitcher being overused. Thought you may find it interesting.

    That's exactly what I would have thought! I've seen Dunn strikeout looking more times than any player I can recall. I was paying particular attention to it that night...he was swinging 4 of the 5 times. The only time he went down looking was the call that got Boone ejected. He seems to have realized he's not going to get many calls so he's taking his cuts now. Unfortunately, he's still not making contact.

    Well, he could use someone batting behind him. I think Austin Is doing so well now, #1 because of his talent, but #2, is because teams are pitching to him. They are not pitching to Dunn. They know he will beat them.

    Not pitching to Dunn? Throughout his entire slump he hasn't been walking near as much. Pitchers are going right after him.
