This Picture Does Not Go With This Headline

Screenshot from the LA Times website, late December 3, 2013:

To be fair to ol' Dylan Hernandez, this was (thankfully) the only mention of Gordon in the article:

If the season were to start next week, Dee Gordon would probably make the team because of his increased versatility. Once considered the shortstop of the future. Gordon played 20 games at second base and was an outfielder in the Dominican winter league this off-season.

Increased versatility means nothing if you can't get on base (and certainly not by stupidly trying to bunt every PA).
