Batting average doesn't win you games, RBI's do. He had 96 of those, best on the team.

Hitting .212 with runners in scoring position, which Dunn did, loses. games. No other player on the White Sox, with RBI chances in at least 25 games, was as ineffective with runners in scoring position as Dunn.

Dunn led the team in RBIs because he had an overwhelming lead in RBI chances while driving himself in 41 times. As an RBI man, he had more to do with the Sox missing the postseaon than with the Sox contending.

At this point, Gavin is who he puts out annually. He's inconsistent, but consistently uneven. For the back of a rotation, that has value over 162 games.

Stop expecting him to be a No. 2 or 3, and he's fine.
