Who are you, and what the hell have you done with John Fay?

Dunn Has Shown He Deserves Long-Term Deal

Highlights:

Those of you who like the "Moneyball" numbers game love Dunn. His OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) annually is among the best in baseball.

He's 22nd in the category among active players. Only three players under age 30 are above him - No. 2 Albert Pujols, No. 14 Miguel Cabrera and No. 20 Mark Teixeira.

I think OPS is much more important than batting average. I also think the most overlooked stat in baseball is games played.

He's a guy who always has been liked by everyone who covers the team on a daily basis, although not so much by some columnists. (Ed. - Whoever could he mean?)

If the Reds win early and Dunn performs as usual - 40 home runs, 100 RBI, 100 runs and 100 walks - Castellini will work out a deal.

The Fay, I take back most of the nasty things I ever said about you.
