Again, the credit where it’s due department, Hal McCoy offers some unvarnished, much-earned praise for Adam Dunn, player and guy:
Another example of why media people love Adam Dunn. A New York writer approached him with trepidation Monday and said, “Adam, I’m doing a story on strikeouts . . . ”
“You’ve come to the right guy,” said Dunn, owner of 37 strikeouts.
Dunn also has 32 walks, second in the league; he has a .667 slugging percentage, second in the league; he has 23 extra base hits, second in the league; he has 11 home runs, tied for the league lead, and he has a .440 on-base percentage, sixth in the league.
