These stats are fielding independent. Obviously we are not talking about playing Dunn at C, SS and CF. The theory is IF you had 9 players who all hit like Adam Dunn AND could play their position at league average levels they would have a .579 Winning percentage by Pythagorean calculations. That's just an estimate, obviously things vary when put on the field.

We're strictly talking about offensive output here.
