    160 561 99 131 24 0 40 92 7 0 112 194 .234 .365 .490
    Deer's career: .220/.324/.442; OPS: .764

    Dunn's career: .245/.380/.513; OPS: .893

    2006 MLB average LF: .276/.348/.456 OPS: .804
    2006 MLB average RF: .277/.345/.458 OPS: .803
    2006 MLB average DH: .261/.356/.485 OPS: .841

    (I realize these would be a little unkind to Deer's early career-but they make the point)


    While Deer was actually an above average defender, I'd go with the one that was a plus bat at his position. Above average defenders who can't hit are pretty easy to find but they aren't very useful DHs. There are ways to maximize Dunn's production while minimizing his weaknesses... Deer, well, not so much.

    But that's just me...

    I agree that he's pretty good. He's not the best in the NL, but he's pretty steady over there. All I have heard since Hatteberg arrived in Cincinnati is how he just wasn't any good. He sure proved a lot of people wrong last year IMO. He was very good with the stick and the leather last year. Just because he doesn't hit homers, he must not be a good 1st baseman. I really like Sean Casey, but he couldn't couldn't touch Hatteberg on defense.

    I think where Marty's coming from is the lack of improvement from Dunn/EE. EE has improved. . .slightly defensively, but everyone knew he was bad. Even EE himself knew that and he's still very inconsistent at 3rd base. This is what kills me about this team. We have the most unfundamentally sound team in the league with Dunn leading the way.

    Has Marty brought up the fact that Dunn once said he was going to steal 25 bases a few seasons ago. I don't think he even had half that because of his weight problem.

    Is 19 more than half of 25?

    why do you keep on talking in the third person? It's kind of creepy.
