I completely agree, and you and a few others on WSI were ahead of the curve and ahead of me. I was lukewarm on the Dunn signing. By now it should be painfully plain, but he hits homers, the stat thing, and maybe because a prophet has no honor at home, expect the criticism to continue. As for me, my teeth will grind and the stomach acids churn every time he comes up to the plate.
