Adam Dunn in 2013- .219 BA, .320 OBP, .762 OPS, .241 w/RISP
Paul Konerko in 2013- .244/.316/.669, .319 w/RISP
I'll take Paulie- any day.
He's not the reason we sucked- we're just better without him- no matter how many solo/meaningless HRs he hits- a .219 batting average for a DH is just unacceptable.
You have so many posts ragging on Dunn, it's hard to take you seriously. He's still a premier power hitter. He still walks a lot, including leading the league in '12. Dunn is a very flawed player that still has value. Konerko is statistically among the worst in baseball. It's not even a discussion.
I harp on Beckham a lot, but he actually does suck. Both the offensive and defensive numbers prove it.
