The slugger, Adam Dunn, who had been a model of power and production for the past 10 years, finished Tuesday night's game against the Yankees with a batting average of .165. That is not a typo, not a mistake, and not an easy thing for a professional player to do even if he is trying to.

If Dunn does not improve significantly over the Chicago White Sox' final 54 games, a number like .165 will put his name in the record books for the lowest single-season batting average by an everyday player since 1909, when Bill Bergen, a catcher, hit .139 for the Brooklyn Superbas.

I guess Mike Rizzo was right to not re-sign him after all.
