The Case for Big Donkey

Here is my case for the man, the myth, the legend, Adam "The Big Donkey" Dunn.
Just because of his low average everyone puts him down. It's called plate discipline and OBP. He is strives in statics that dumb people don't know or understand the importance of. He gets on base and walks a ton. Dunn's OBP is higher than some .300 average hitters, which just shows how flawed the average stat is. He is among the major league leaders every season in number of pitches per at-bat, an indication that he generally knows when to swing and when not to. He makes the pitchers work. Dunn has the fifth-lowest career at bats per home run average in Major-League history. His 13.96 ratio (about one home run every 14 times he comes to bat). He has the balance of getting on base and hitting the long ball. With the shorten right field Dunn will go to town. He is not an injury risk, every year he has played in over 150 game every season in his career (expect one).

Nate add onto this with your eternal knowledge.

Care to elaborate? Also, Adam Dunn is the only player to hit a home run over state lines, so that's reason enough to sign him.

Got my new computer working

Its not a popular opinion but Dunn has a great bat.

I`ve heard 3 years, 36 million for Dunn. That's half the salary per year and less than half the length probably.

Manny could very well get one more year than Dunn, even at his age, and a much higher salary.

3/36 for Dunn is like stealing, but I have heard the same thing.

Just feel like dunn is another giambi u bring dunn in to ny u might as well have kept giambi you dont know how adam dunn will react in new york we know how giambi will already. We need pitching, we don't need Dhs and first basemen. Throw the house at sabathia.

I don't think any of us are saying sign Dunn over CC. He is definitely the priority, but after we lock him up, I think Dunn should get a lot of consideration.

Again, I agree with the Giambi comparison. However, Dunn is under 30, a better fielder, much less of an injury, and a better hitter. In other words, he`s a better version of Giambi
