    Adam Dunn = SB machine

    Adam Dunn is ranked 12th in the majors in stolen bases with 5. If you go by percentages, he is 5th with 5 attempts at 100%.

    Sure, one was a piggy back off a double steal. But he has been a pretty good baserunner. Scored today from third on that dumb play by Paulino on the "Sac" bunt by Belisle. There was another play earlier this year where I remember mentioning his good baserunning, though I can't remember it right now.

    So, maybe he hasn't been incredible at the plate right now, but he has done well in other areas that he hasn't always done well in like baserunning, and more surprisingly, fielding.

    Maybe batting Dunn in the leadoff spot wasn't quite as absurd as some people thought back in 2003. If you did that though his RBI chances would go down batting behind the bottom of the order, but still it's interesting to kick around 4 years later. Dunn batting leadoff was due to his OBP and not his speed, but he did steal 19 bases in 2001.

    I think that might be the one where he got in the run-down to let Conine advance.

    Overall I've liked what I've seen WHEN he's on the basepaths. He needs to work on being on them more often.
