I believe G.M's are looking at the wrong part of Adam Dunn.
Instead of looking at the .230 hitter who hits poorly with RISP and plays questionable defense, they should be looking at how many runs Dunn creates per 27 outs.
Dunn's currently ranked 20th in all of MLB at 7.47 Runs Created per 27 Outs.
To put that in perspective Josh Hamilton is at 7.27, but of course plays better defense.
But, Manny Ramirez is a joke defensively in the Outfied, and his RC/27 outs is similar to Dunn's at 7.55.
Yet, any hint of Ramirez being available gets the attention of seemingly every contending G.M. out there.
Runs Created per 27 outs might have it's flaws, but it's got to be a better way to look at Dunn's value than homeruns, or batting average, or RBI's, or his Defense.
Someone's not doing a good job of showing the value that Dunn has right now. He's in his prime, and his stats this year support this. Yes, there's reports out there from MLB scouts that his bat speed is already in decline, but even if it is, he's adjusted in other areas to maintain his RC/27 outs.
20th in all of baseball in this category is an ungodly number. 16 teams have nobody who is creating 7.47 Runs per 27 Outs at all. And, he's even hotter in July than that the last month.
