Unless of course Hahn pulls off the miracle of dumping Dunn, but I'm not holding my breath. Assuming the Sox continue with the twelve man pitching staff, this leaves just three spots on the bench. Doesn't seem to be the way to go when they should be looking at who can contribute in the future.
Completely agree. The Sox may have 5 guys on their Opening Day Roster who can play first base (Dunn, Abreau, PK, Keppinger and Gillaspie). The only
way allowing Paulie to return makes any sense is if Hahn has a Dump Dunn Deal up his sleeve.
