#1 change is get .100 hitting Dunn out of the line up- he's sucked 9/13 months with the Sox (<.200 from 2011-2013)- and whoever they DH will immediately give them an upgrade on offense- their biggest issue. Then Beckham and Viciedo come back- and the offense goes up another notch.
Do they have the guts and courage to bench or release Dunn?
I wish they did.
I don't think they do.
