Until those questions have answers in the affirmative, there's simply NO POINT in releasing Dunn. It's half an idea based purely on frustration, not on any chance to open a slot for someone who deserves it.
I understand what you are saying. But do we lose anything by releasing him? Can any young hitter be worse?
Do the white sox know that it is Designated Hitter, not Designated Out?
