Adam Dunn 1B/DH OAK Jan 12 '79
Adam Dunn homered, singled and scored twice against the Royals on Wednesday.
Manager Robin Ventura's surprising decision to bat Dunn fourth ahead of Paul Konerko gave his value a bit of a boost. Nothing against Konerko, but since he's terribly slow and he drives in a lot of runs himself, he's a rather tough guy to hit behind. Of course, Dunn hit ahead of Konerko last year, too, but it looked like he'd be dropped to fifth this year with Alex Rios moving up to the third spot.
