Maybe people like him because he hacks at it Ozzie-style, he's chicago tough, or he has TWTW.
But at some point, stark reality must be faced: .095 and .261
Hell for all the crap Dunn takes, his OPS is nearly 400 points higher.

Nice cherry-picking of stats. By the way, my previous post is not meant to taken that I think Wise is a good player. There is a good reason why he is a journeyman. I was only commenting on the fact that you think he is the worst player in MLB, which he isn't.

I'm not saying I'm keen on Dewayne Wise or care if he stays or goes, but if you're bringing up a bench player's batting average in April, that's a pretty clear indication you don't know what you're talking about.
You beat me to it. Also, you are right: This is Caspar Wells, folks.

I can only assume that had Mike Trout been available, Hahn would have pursued him instead, just in case anyone is wondering why he didn't.
