From a real baseball standpoint he stinks though. Baker is making a huge mistake by starting him over Bruce and maybe at some point that costs patterson his job, but since they have one of the worst managers in baseball maybe it doesn't.
I somewhat agree about the real baseball standpoint. In all honesty I would move Dunn to 1b and let Bruce play LF. Votto is not the prospect that Bruce is, so send him down to the minors until someone in the OF gets hurt, then bring him back up and move Dunn back to LF.
Dunn getting traded is probably the best solution all around though.
