Hal McCoy answers his fan mail.
Q With all the Adam Dunn bashing, has anybody compared his statistics to those of Philadelphia Ryan Howard, Mr. MVP? ó Sandy, Chicago
A Good one. Everybody howls about Dunn's 153 strikeouts. Howard has struck out 173 times. Howard has 37 homers to Dunn's 36. Dunn has 91 walks to Howard's 85. Dunn has scored 93 runs to Howard's 78. Howard has 113 RBIs to Dunn's 96. Howard is hitting .265 to Dunn's .266. Howard is talked about as one of the National League's premier players while Dunn gets dumped on as the monthly Bum of the Month.
Wonder if MartyB is going to still call him the Hall of Famer Hal McCoy.
