Adam Dunn Might Edge Mark Reynolds
Coming into 2011, it looked as though Reynolds record would be safe. Only Carlos Pena and Chris Davis showed any proclivity to accomplish such things. However, Adam Dunn's collapse has given Reynolds a true contender. This year Dunn has 96 differential with 156 Ks and 60 hits. He is on pace to finish with a differential of about 108, so he is going to have to pick it up a bit. Dunn though is more of a two true outcome hitter, he strikes out and he earns a lot of money. His salary is what gets him in the lineup.
