James Fegan @ WSO:

While Dunn continues to scare the bejeesus out of the fan base by failing to square up fastballs, suggesting a possible sudden deterioration of a player whose type lends itself to sudden deterioration, Konerko is hammering heaters at 2.92 runs above-average per 100 (through Monday).  That is fourth in all of baseball, and the only time Paulie has ever hit them anywhere near as good is….last season.  And that’ll do just fine. …

Fangraphs says Paulie at 21 Fastball Runs above average for the year. I was skeptical when the Sox gave him a 3/$37.5M deal last year but the guy has been on fire so far. As for Dunn, I don’t know if I can trust a NL player over 30 again…

BTW, while I was browsing Fangraphs I notice in the AL scoreboard the Sox have 2 players among the lowest 3 wRC+ scores, 3 in the lowest 10, or 4 in the lowest 14. Things have been bad…
