Adam Dunn's first season with the Chicago White Sox was one he'd love to forget. He knows that's not going to happen because everyone wants to know what went wrong.
Why did a slugger 35 homers shy of 400 for his career go through one of the most miserable seasons in baseball history with a .159 average, only 11 homers and a team-record 177 strikeouts?
Dunn said Saturday he'd like to be done reflecting on it and look ahead to a new season that begins with spring training next month.

The Winter Leagues continue to wrap things up….
Tigres de Aragua 3, Tiburones de La Guaira 1
1B Hector Gimenez had another big day, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, to lead Los Tigres to the win. That gives them the win of the championship series, and takes them to the Caribbean Series, which begins on Feb 2nd. Los Tigres scored in just one...
Juan Pierre. (MLB)The Phillies have inked speedy outfielder Juan Pierre to a minor-league contract.Last season, Pierre, 34, was still a serviceable player with the Chicago White Sox, although we know he is completely one-dimensional. He will give you slap hits and speed and not much else. Over 158 games, Pierre hit .279 in 711 plate appearances, however, his steals fell from 68 in...
GM accepts criticism from fans at SoxFest for club's poor showingWhite Sox GM Ken Williams did accept the chilly reception he received during introductions that didn't include Adam Dunn, whose flight was delayed. Dunn is expected to be in attendance Saturday.
John Danks has no idea if the combination of his immense talent and new five-year, $65 million deal makes him the White Sox staff ace.
Today, it was announced that the Phillies and outfielder Juan Pierre had agreed on a minor league contract. The details of the deal are not specified, but one would assume it includes a invitation to Spring Training. Duh, it’s only twenty-two days away.
But nonetheless, the pickup of Pierre is a very good move by RAJ. Adding speed to this revamped-bench is just what the Phillies...
When the White Sox went into their modified rebuilding mode, GM Ken Williams consulted captain Paul Konerko about the team's new direction.
The speedster, a.k.a. Juan Pierre, is likely to sign a minor league deal with the Phillies according to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly. Jon Heyman also backed up this report. Pierre last played for the Chicago White Sox.
Looks like my wish might just come true. On Sunday I suggested the Phillies attempt to sign one of either Juan Pierre or Johnny Damon. Pierre seems to be Amaro's choice, and it's reportedly only a minor league deal. From Sunday's Blog Post:"Pierre is nothing more than a singles hitter, but he did lead the American League in stolen bases in 2010 with 68, and swiped...
The uncertainty regarding Chris Sale's move to the 2012 White Sox starting rotation has nothing to do with his ability to handle -- or quite possibly excel -- with the change.
In a small but potentially significant move, the Phillies signed speedy Juan Pierre to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training on Friday.
Outfielder Juan Pierre has agreed to a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. The 34-year-old hit .279 with two homers, 50 RBIs and 27 steals for the Chicago White Sox last season, starting 152 games in left field. The left-handed batter hit .329 against lefties Pierre leads active players with 554 steals.
White Sox general manager Ken Williams is still feeling his son's pain.
The biggest ovations during Friday's SoxFest Opening Ceremonies introductions were reserved for Robin Ventura, Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski, Joe Crede and Harold Baines, in no particular order. General manager Ken Williams was the only one who heard a few jeers.
The phrase "under the radar" frequently describes Ken Williams' mode of operation in trying to acquire personnel upgrades for the White Sox. Where free-agent Cuban hurler Geraldo Concepcion and fellow free-agent Cuban outfielders Yoenis Cespedes and Jorge Soler are concerned, the White Sox general manager has changed his game to poker.
