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.
Which to me indicates he has been hurt for a while now and was playing through the pain.
