John Erardi does it again:
Granted, Dunn is not an easy case-study. His combination of offensive skills and shortcomings is unique in baseball history.
He became the poster boy for a bad Reds team; he should have been the poster boy for the importance of statistical analysis in determining the true source of an offense’s inability to score runs.
It’s not unusual that Dunn would get the blame for almost everything wrong with the Reds the last few years. What we can’t understand is his being blamed for not driving in runners who weren’t on base in front of him.
