You missed the point. What Robin has been doing is plugging the replacement player into the three hole, rather than moving one of the every-day players out of his accustomed spot in the lineup to the three, then moving other guys to account for that movement, and so on. All he did was replace Dunn with a bench guy every day, leaving everybody else where they had been.

If it's true that Dunn is through for the year, he may reconsider shuffling the lineup. And for those who are pointing out what a huge loss Dunn is due to OPS, RBI, etc., take a look at his month by month splits. He was heading seriously downhill as the season progressed. His August numbers were terrible.
