when 2/3 of your lineup is Average at best, you are screwed.
Dunn has done exactly what he was expected to do--hit home runs and drive runs in. The strikeouts come with the territory. Nobody will be disappointed if he's moved, but he's not the problem.
Konerko has been flat out awful since the All Star Break, and he's been hitting fourth all year. I don't know if it's the injury or if he's just lost it (like 2009 Dye). But he has not provided what is needed in the heart of the order.
