Your comment doesn't seem to be founded in any sort of reality.
For what it's worth, I believe Adam Dunn is the same hitter he was before he came to the White Sox. His numbers aren't as good, but having watched him play, I didn't believe his White Sox numbers would approach his pre-White Sox numbers. Whether his numbers made him a good hitter in the National League (I didn't believe that to be the case, seeing how pitchers got him out, seeing how little contact he made etc.) is irrelevant. I didn't see any way he was going to help the White Sox win.
You thought a player who hit .250/.381/.521 over a decade in the NL, would switch leagues and become the worst hitter of all time?
JEFF: 100 bucks! Hey Al, you know a lot about sports maybe you could win the hundred and buy yourself a newer Dodge.
AL: No chance! Those questions are so obscure that you’d have to have no life whatsoever to get the answer.
TV: "Who played centerfield for the Chicago White Sox in the ’59 world series."
AL: Jim Landis! I know that, Jim Landis!
