    Ichiro vs. Dunn

    Please forgive me if this was posted. The writer compares Ichiro to Dunn.

    in all of Dunn's 40+ HR years (this will be his 4th) he has created more runs than Ichiro in each of those seasons. Thats the whole point of offense right?

    Ichiro, in my opinion, is the game's best hitter. . . bar none. To compare him to Adam Dunn is insulting Ichiro.

    How? Other than hitting for a higher average, how is Ichiro THAT much of a better hitter than Dunn?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Well for one, I've never seen Ichiro miss a base.

    That's just unfair. As has been reported, Dunn's knee has been hurting him all season causing him pain when he had to come to a stop when running, which could easily explain that incident.

    I've never seen Buck Coats miss a base. Or Jason Ellison. Come to think of it, when's the last time Juan Castro missed a base?

    Seriously, if you're going to try and knock a .940 OPS player, come with heavier ammo than a freakin' base-running mistake.

    I'm pretty sure the guy was joking around, relax. It was a bonehead mistake.

    Who knows maybe Ichiro will miss a base one day when he's got a bum knee

    If Ichiro wanted to he could hit 45 homers a season. He has that kind of ability. I guess he would probably hit like Adam Dunn if he were to try though.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    If he could do that, he should. That's the whole point of the article. Dunn is more productive than Ichiro, if Ichiro could hit for more power the Mariners would be better off with him doing it.

    Re: Ichiro vs. Dunn

    They are completely different styles of hitters. It's not fair to either player to compare them (nor is it to compare Ty Cobb and Ichiro to an empty ba like Alex Sanchez), without one you dont get the other (as we have seen).

    Give me my choice of any 7 power hitters and then for the 8th Dunn or Ichiro I would take Ichiro.

    Likewise if I had Pete Rose, Rickey Henderson, Ty Cobb types, plus a couple good/not great power hitters I take Dunn for the RBI potential.
