Probably because for the 7 years prior to the signing, Dunn had averaged a .914 OPS and had been pretty much a model of consistency. Sure, he struck out a lot, but he drew a lot of walks and hit at least 38 home runs in each of those 7 seasons. Personally, I remember thinking that he could easily hit 50 playing half his games at U.S. Cellular.
