Dunn being bad doesn't excuse Konerko from also being bad. PK had trouble getting the ball out of the infield.
All the more reason why the "Hulk Smash" approach to hitting needs some refiining. Hell, I wanted to see him lay down a few bunts to the left side when the shift was on until they adjusted. With his all-or-nothing approach, defenses had no reason to adjust.
