Adam Dunn analysis from a Mariners fan

Long read, but it's always interesting to get an outsider's point of view:

A lot of statheads and BP readers have been known to fall all over themselves when talking about Dunn, a 26 year old who hits 40 homers and walks 100 times a year, and being one myself, it's easy to understand why. The guy has 158 bombs and a career OPS of .901 before turning 27, and that's terrific. It's just that he also has some flaws that tend to be glossed over by the "analytical public," flaws that make him a worse player than you'd think by simply glancing at his age and raw numbers.
