  • AL Comeback Player of the Year - Dunn or Pettitte?

    So far, who would get your vote for AL comeback player of the year?

    Adam Dunn is coming off a historically awful season in which he hit .159 with only 11 homers in around 500 PA. He currently is 2nd in MLB in home runs with 20 and leads the league in walks.

    Andy Pettitte retired after the 2010 season. Did not play in 2011, and decided to come back to the Yanks for 2012. He turns 40 this week. Pettitte has been pitching phenomenally well, going 3-2 in so far in 6 starts, with a 2.81 ERA and 1.03 WHIP, and 40 K and 9 BB in 41.2 innings.

    So who gets the nod? Or is there another candidate that I am forgetting about?

    Dunn.

    Pettitte didn't leave after having a bad year. Sure it was shortened due to injury, but he had a good year in 2010. So far Pettitte is just continuing on with the great performance he had in 2010.

    Dunn sucked last year. He couldn't hit a ball off a tee or if it was tossed to him underhand. Now while he has a high strikeout rate, he is hitting for power again and being productive.

      I'm leaning toward Dunn,but it's too early to know.

        Dunn is having a great season, I just wonder if someone can win an award like this if he finishes with something like a .210 BA and 230 strikeouts. It would be interesting to see.

              Well, we know Ichiro won't be winning the award. He was terrible last year and he's terrible again this year.

              If anyone is wondering why the Mariners are so bad, it might have something to do with their replacement-level right fielder making $18,000,000 per year.

                Hilarious...have pettite on fantasy team, but need to see more from him before making any decisions...Dunn strikes out too much for me

                  Dunn Andy P was never bad to begin with so how can he win a comeback award when he he isn't coming back from a bad season.

                    One can argue that it's more difficult to come back at age 40 after not playing baseball for a year than coming back at age 32 after a bad season.

                        I don't agree with giving CPotY awards to players who sucked in the previous year. I'd give it to a guy who was injury-plagued or a guy who missed the entire season due to a brief retirement or no team signing him (like Pettitte).

                          The thing going against Pettitte is the fact that he missed the first part of the season because he started late. His total numbers won't end up being that great.

                          Dunn on the other hand has played every game and is one pace for 54 homers and 130 walks.

                            lets wait how they finish the season. they are both good candidates as of now.
                            I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

                              We finally agree somewhat, although I still think he can play better than replacement defense.
                              Lou Gehrig is the Truest Yankee of them all!
