Yes you can pass up the HR counts- Rob Deer was a good example- with all the other wasted ABs that come with it- and combined with the number of hackers/free swingers already in the line up. Personally- what I want most from a DH is a good batting average w/RISP. The best DHs we've had (Thome, Thomas, Baines, Luzinski) all had batting averages around .280+ w/RISP- Dunn's career of .235 w/RISP has been a red flag since the Sox started looking at acquiring him last summer.

A month is a slump- we're almost to the All Star break and he's looked as bad in June as he did in April and May- no sign of improvement.

I hope I'm wrong.
