I don't read into stats too much so I can't tell you too much about them other than the typical 20th century stats before all these saber metrics came to life.

All I'm saying is Konerko hasn't been great. He's been average. Slump here, 7 game hitting streak there. Slump here, plunked in face, 18 game terror. Wrist surgery here, major slump NOW. Average is good but Rios has more timely hits and as many XBH. Konerko hits a lot of singles and hasn't been as reliable as Rios.

As far as Dunn, there's something to be said about being top five in the categories like HR's, RB's, BB's, OPS, Slugging, WAR, WZOBOAJ (a PP made up stat), but let's take into account how often he can't make contact with the damn ball in crucial situations where he needs to move the runner to the next base, hit a sac fly RBI, or simply get on base with a hit. If it's not a HR, it's a SO. And if it's not a SO, it's a BB (which doesn't get the job done).
