Projections? Projections?

Robin Ventura don't need to see no stinking projections.

When it comes to baseball, the White Sox manager trusts his eyes, not someone's algorithms. And Ventura's baby blues somehow tell him Adam Dunn is contributing even when he goes to the plate and does nothing but swing and miss, swing and miss, swing and miss.

"For me, what he does, when he gets in there, (his value) for lineups is just presence and the threat he is when he goes to the plate,'' Ventura said before Gavin Floyd mowed down the Twins for seven innings in Tuesday night's 3-2 victory. "That shows in the walks he gets and how much he gets on base."
