Does Robin Have The Power?...
To bench Dunn... is a question that has been coming up on the boards in some threads.
I'd like to think he does, but given his salary I can't say this with 100% confidence. There's a chance that he'd be 'over ruled' by the powers that be in my mind.
For what it's worth I asked this question to a source in the media who sees the Sox regularly. In their opinion they feel Robin does have the power to bench Dunn at anytime without fear of being over ruled. They said that Robin has more latitude under Rick Hahn then he would have under Kenny.
Again take the comment for whatever you will.
The next question then would be if he does bench him who do the Sox have to replace him, given the injury list and the lack of talent in the minor leagues?
