    This is the part I am actually interested in regarding this thread, since the Dunn stuff has been rehashed 100 times.

    What would you recommend doing with SS given the assumption that Phillips stays at 2B rest of this year and your options are Aurillia, Clayton and Castro?
    Does the lift from Aurillia's offense, at least against against LHP, offset his defensive deficiencies compared to the other two? Who would you use at SS vs righties? vs lefties? I don't like Aurillia as my starting SS, but I've been of the mindset it is a better option than Clayton or Castro.

    Sorry if this has been talked elsewhere. I'm on here every day and I've missed it if it has been talked.

    As for Dunn, I would hit him 3rd. Hatteberg is our best OBP guy, I like him 2nd. With Dunn 3rd he still gets the protection that seemed to help him so much earlier this year. I'd go:

    RF Freel
    1B Hatte
    LF Dunn
    3B Edwin
    CF Griffey
    C Ross
    SS Aurilia
    2B Phillips
    Probably best lineup since Dunn is really not effected by LHP vs. RHP. Your balance is still there from lefty vs. righty.
