Rowland 1, stat geeks DUNN
I’ve been consistent in my loathing for Adam Dunn, who plays baseball as if it was a lunchroom and he was its janitor. But the stat geeks have always loved him because he walks a lot and has power. Never mind all the strikeouts (notice how K’s are so important for pitchers but irrelevant for hitters), shitty defense and general malaise.
The aptly named Big Donkey has THREE singles against southpaws this season. No homers. No doubles. No triples, natch. He’s hitting .037 vs. lefties, .207 vs. righties. His OPS: .595.
Dunn vows to be in better shape next season. Guess the four-year, $56 million contract given to him last winter wasn’t enough of an incentive.
Has there ever been a worse contract?
