Agreed - Junior was out of the lineup for long periods of time when Dunn was here and he rarely batted 3rd then either. I think there was a thread back then as to whether you bat Dunn where he prefers or where you want him to bat. I don't know there are guys who seem to be more comfortable batting in certain positions. I think the REDS will experiment with Dunn at 3rd for a month or so - if it doesn't work they will know they will have to find someone else.
