I just don't know if he can do that.
An interesting question. I've discussed this very point with a few different people recently. How long does Robin wait to act? And would he be allowed to act given the money Dunn is making?
Guillen used to talk about how he "makes out the ****ing lineup," yet he left a .160 hitter in the 3 hole nearly all season in 2011. Maybe he was just that stupid, but you also wonder if he was acting on orders from above.
If Dunn continues to be this bad, I hope Robin does have the authority to make a change. But I don't know. I do know Uncle Jer wants a return on his investment.
