As much as it pains me, yes, I'd keep Dunn around too. Unlike 'clubhouse cancers' - I don't think getting rid of Dunn will result in 'addition by subtraction.' Unless someone would be willing to pick up a big part of his salary and/or give the Sox a decent prospect or two, it really doesn't make sense. He's not blocking someone promising young stud in the minors.
