i thought i'd sit dunn today, his avg is too low and he K's way too much, and i went with an OF of: magglio, pujols, kearns, beltran, which normally would be a real nice starting OF, but lo and behold dunn is 3/3 with 2 HRs and 5 RBI, argh!

At the beginning of the season, it seemed like whenever I sat Dunn he'd hit a hr or two, so I just leave him in now. I guess I'll take the average for the NL leader in hrs.
That is frustrating though

I read something on this site that always make me think...

"Fantasy baseball is ruled by the 50-50-90 rule, any time you have a 50/50 pick between 2 players, 90% of the time you will pick wrong"

Dunn is a heartbreaker...while he's great for homers. RBIs, et al, he's brutal with errors and strikeouts. Last check he was on pace to hit 45 homers and strikeout 200+ times. He also commits a lot of errors(especially for an outfielder), but then again that's a Reds calling card this year. Bench him against lefty's and if your tight in the error or strikeout catagory... His last 4 strikeout game was a couple weeks ago, vs. lefthanded pitching. You can live with the average I'd imagine.
