His BABIP also dropped 36 points from .265 to .229, which could possibly indicate that, at least in part, some of his 2nd half struggles can just be chalked up to bad luck (or, if you want to continue your crazed, anti-Dunn fantacism, overly good luck in the 1st half).
The shift killed Dunn. I've actually never seen it work so well against a hitter.
Dunn being bad doesn't excuse Konerko from also being bad. PK had trouble getting the ball out of the infield.
