He's just not worth the money we're paying him.
But we certainly could win with him at DH.
Dunn/White Sox- ranked 12th of 15 teams for DH- so there are exactly 3 teams in MLB where Dunn would be of value-

To minimize the damage while we pray for someone to take him off our hands- he should be batting 5th/6th- and only starting vs. RHPs

Dunn will be out off baseball after 2014- he's a DH only at this stage- and in the bottom 25% of that position- while aging and declining-

Best scenario for the WSox is he looks good in spring training, gets off to a fast start and an AL contender gets hit with injuries where they are desperate enough to take on a decent part of Dunn's salary for a few months of his DH production.
