Adam Dunn

The following list recently came to my attention: players that have an OBP at least 1.5 times higher than their batting average for multiple seasons or their who career. On the list is none other than Adam Dunn. His BA is only .240, but he has a .370 OBP. This is the essense of the “Money Ball” player. Perhaps this means he could be in the Hall when he retires. He has 406 home runs right now. If he gets close to 500 he would have a shot, especially if the writers are open to Moneyball-type stats. Generally speaking, I don’t think they are though.
