A good argument could be made to bat Dunn 2nd or 3rd.
However, I can't see Jr batting 7th on this team. Too many bad hitters, even though Jr is no longer a superstar.
Batting Dunn #3 in the batting order, and batting Jr 5th or 6th, wouldn't have really made a difference. We're still a last place team.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
