Dunn's problem is simply not doing anything of value right now.
True, however Dunn is not even close to the player that Pujols or Fielder. Also, Pujols is not playing 1b becuase he hurt his left foot.
The overall trend is for a lot of teams to use DH by commitee for roster flexability and to avoid the luxury tax.
