Furthermore, lets be real. Reports fly around all of the time that Dunn is GREAT in the clubhouse, and has been a great mentor to a lot of the younger guys.
He's been one of the better hitters on a 100 loss team- who gives a ****?
He's hitting ****ing .216
this year and he's hit .196
over his 3 years with the Sox- how can that NOT be considered one of our issues? If for no other reason than a waste of $15M/season.
Not a single team wanted him at the trading deadline- NOT ONE.
Not sure what reports are flying around "all the time"- but how exactly is he mentoring anyone and how has that had a positive impact? For $15M- why should I care about him being great in the clubhouse?
