    Over that three year period, I wonder how many of those 40-50 per year were over 100 RC each year.

    20-30?

    Since RC is a cumulative stat, Dunn obviously gets bonus points for his durability. Someone (like Carlos Lee) could have easily taken one off his hand and wasn't able to hit the magic number. Lee ends the season with 86 this year.

    And according to THT, Dunn had 98 in 2006.

    Now I know that Dunn is one of the more consistent guys in this area, as some people fluctuate back and forth over the 100 level. That's a plus for him. But I still think that centerpiece is a little strong of a word for this number.
    Fine, check out RC/27. with 7.00+

    07-28 (Dunn 20th)
    06-32 (Dunn 53)
    05-28 (Dunn 16)
    04-28 (Dunn 16)

    But there are only 20 of those top 20 guys and I suspect they're hard to get a hold of unless you develop them yourself or have the scratch to pay the big bucks in free agency. If you can't build your team around a Top 20 guy, having a couple of guys in that 40-50th range would be pretty good too. Still a centerpiece, even if you aren't expected to do it alone. In any case, I think Dunn is one of those players who teams should build around. The key is getting the right players to complement his skills rather than trying to force him to adapt in order to pick up the slack for lesser offensive talents.
