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.
If Robin can't do what is best for the team then this organization really is operating backwards. I guess I'd equate it to a starting QB in the NFL being benched if he wasn't performing...sometimes things need to be done for the good of the team and theoretically speaking, money shouldn't make a difference in that. Realistically I don't really know what to think about where JR's head is these days.
