Alex was arguably our best hitter last year too and I'd welcome him back to the 3 hole. De Aza, Keppinger, and Rios batting 1-2-3 would be a top of the order that can all put the ball in play. I'm not as "Anti-Dunn" as many on this board but I've never been a fan of him batting 3rd. I've always viewed him more as a #5 hitter. I also feel that the 3 spot should be reserved for your team's best all around hitter who has a little pop in the bat too. Alex Rios fits that description.
