But I agree with you, there is no hope in that guy.
Dunn is in the last year of his deal. If he has a hot stretch, particularly in June or July, the Sox may have an opportunity to deal him with some team like Pittsburgh trying to upgrade at 1B down the stretch. It probably doesn't happen but it could. Last year, the Bucs acquired Justin Morneau at the deadline in a similar kind of deal.
And Dunn's stats should actually improve this year, as his role is limited to a platoon DH. Maybe that helps his trade value.

The roster for position players was actually petty set before spring training, with the variable being injuries or whether they'd make a trade.
I just hope they are able to trade De Aza, Alexei and maybe Beckham for high ceiling prospects this season.
I expect the Sox to keep making those kind of moves. That sure appears to be Hahn's approach.
