Josh Katzowitz is asking that question in the Cincinnati Post.
My personal preference is that Dunn hit third (or even cleanup), but there is a better chance of me getting called out of the stands on opening day to use my knuckleball for a couple of innings. Dunn will hit 2nd, 5th, 6th, or 7th, mainly because I don’t think Dave Miley (who I like very much) realizes that Dunn is his best hitter.
my lineup (only a dream…) to start the season:
As season progresses and (hoping) that Lopez hits likes he’s always been expected to…
To me the question should be “Where is the rest of the lineup going to hit around Dunn?” He’s without a doubt, the best hitter on the team, and should hit 3rd or 4th, regardless of other’s salaries or past glory. I got to say, though, that I really don’t mind seeing him hit 1st. It’s not the end of the world wherever he ends up as lineup construction has a smaller affect on team offense than most would think.
