The notion that he stinks because he has never been on a winning team is laughable at best, and Chicago Tough at worst.

You guys are turning Adam Dunn into my favorite player.
If I'm attempting to build a winner the last guy I would want is Adam Dunn.

I would also be curious to know how many guys he has left stranded. He is hitting .153 with 2 home runs in late and close situations and only 4 home runs with 28 RBIs in high leverage situations. Maybe those aren't the best stats to judge him with but my point is that Dunn contributes far less than his line would suggest.
Exactly. It might not be his fault that he's been on all those losing teams but he sure as heck doesn't help make you a winner either.
