I'd really like to sign up for Clickbank except I am worried about it. Do you know if it is the case?

Holy crap! I didn't even know Dunston played SS. All I saw was his OF career. I missed that when looking at his player page.

Stats show he had great range for a SS which could have led to more errors, making his fielding WAR -10. Probably a lot of throwing errors with that cannon of an arm too. His entertainment value above a replacement player is about 77.72 over his career.

Certainly doesn't have to be a #1 pick. I just started with Dunston because his numbers jumped out at me. Amazing that guys can have such long careers with such little value.

I'm not sure it's wrong. I read Twins fans railing about his performance in the outfield. And just from watching him during the postseason, his range looked awful. He's not a Kevin Reimer-esque butcher, so one might think he's doing ok. But I felt like there were 3 or 4 balls hit in his direction during those 3 games which Brett Gardner would have caught, and Young let drop 10 feet in front of him. Nothing egregious, but those add up.

That said he was positive this year so maybe he's turning it around. And still only 24!
