Know who doesn't care? Adam Dunn. "Oh, boo hoo, Adam Dunn sucks. All he does is mash." Knock it off. I didn't want to tell you this, but Adam Dunn is making $15M this season. That may be hard to comprehend, so let's put it this way: it's $92,590 per game. Does Adam Dunn care about his stats? He does not. 4 strikeouts today? $92K. 3 home runs today? $92K. Hating on Adam Dunn? Learn to mash, son.

Second Base: Omar Infante, Detroit Tigerslol huh? I'm serious. Past 7 games: .440 AVG, .840 SLG, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 1 SB
Projected 162: .440/.840, 46 HR, 116 RBI, 23 SB
Catcher: Russell Martin, Pittsburgh PiratesHow hard is he mashing? Past 6 games: .346 AVG, .885 SLG, 4 HR, 7 RBI
Projected 162: 108 HR, 189 RBI
More on the best catcher of all time: Russell Martin is the guy you'd love to bring home to meet your daughter if you weren't so afraid he'd mash her into oblivion. You see that .346 AVG in the last 6 games? You know what else is .346 in that span? His on base percentage. YOU DO NOT WALK RUSSELL MARTIN. HE WILL SWING AT BALL FOUR AS MANY TIMES AS HE WANTS. TRY TO WALK HIM. DO IT.

Does he start against lefties? No.
Why not? Look, he killed a lefty in the minor leagues. He doesn't like to talk about it, but JUST KIDDING HE WILL TOTALLY TALK ABOUT IT.
Fun Fact: That GIF doesn't tell the whole story. McLouth apologized for not throwing the ball out of the stadium as he intended.
