Found September 03, 2013 on Hall of Very Good:
PLAYERS: Adam Dunn
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
You don't often hear stories of a guy walking away from $15 million, but in the case of Adam just might. According to reports, the Chicago White Sox slugger is actually considering retirement. “If I’m not having fun, I can’t do it. I won’t do it. I can’t. I’ll be a miserable person. I don’t want to be like that. I want to be like I am a lot. Happy," Dunn, who turns 34 in November, said on Tuesday.  "It should be fun. This is a fun game.” Dunn is in the midst of what appears to be a neverending slump.  After two satisfying years in Washington, he inked a huge deal with Chicago.  Unfortunately, his numbers on the Southside haven't warranted the big contract. “I’m not coming back just to come back for money or because I have one year left (on his contract),” Dunn, who turns 34 in November, said on Tuesday. “I’m not coming back to chase home-run numbers or whatever. If I end up with 499 and I’m not having fun, see ya — 499 it is.” Currently, Dunn has 436 home runs...good for fourth among active players.

Report: White Sox Adam Dunn may Retire After the Season

  Although, Adam Dunn has had a lot of success as a power hitter in the major leagues and has made lot of money because of it, there have been questions in the past about his passion for the game. Now, that can be an internal issue or due to the fact that he’s been on bad teams for the majority of his career, with the latter being the case with the 56-81 Chicago White Sox this...

Adam Dunn is guaranteed $15 million next season. He needs 64 home runs for 500. And he is only 33 years old.

Chicago White Sox: Rick Hahn gets it

The world of Chicago sports is in uncharted waters of sorts. All five major professional franchises seemingly have management in place that gets it. It may sound simple. But when you start reminiscing about the Jim Hendry’s, Kenny Williams and Jerry Angelo’s of the world, it should make Chicago sports fans appreciate how truly lucky they are competent brain trusts orchestrating...

Erik Johnson's MLB Debut Could've Been Much Worse

Erik Johnson, the White Sox pitching prospect that currently has the most promise of anyone in the organization made his debut Wednesday evening. Although his final line (6.0 IP, 5R, 3ER) looks about as pedestrian as can be, what we did see from him should not worry anybody. Think back to July 30th when Andre Rienzo made his debut for the White Sox. The Brazilian,...

Sox Take Advantage of September Call-Ups

While the White Sox are probably disappointed they can’t use this season’s September call-ups to help propel them into them into the postseason, it’s still a way to get a look at younger players who could potentially be a part of the 2014 team and beyond. Rick Hahn and company have taken full advantage of roster size expanding to 40, calling up six players from the...

Tyler Flowers to Undergo Exploratory Surgery, Out 3-6 Months

It's been a tough year for White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers and with Monday's news, the worst had not even come yet. Tyler's right shoulder has been bothering him for a while, so he will undergo exploratory surgery on it this Thursday. According to the 27 year-old (as reported by Scott Merkin), the "problem was discovered" exactly one year ago. The...

Johnson shaky in debut, White Sox lose to Yankees

Erik Johnson's major league debut came at Yankee Stadium against a $230 million team in the middle of a pennant race. No wonder he was nervous. ''Tough draw for your first one,'' veteran teammate Paul Konerko said. ''He held his own.'' Struggling ace CC Sabathia pitched into the eighth inning before Mariano Rivera earned his first four-out save...

Sale, White Sox can't finish Yankees in 6-4 loss

Chris Sale was cruising along toward his latest gem against the New York Yankees. The only thing he failed to do was finish them off. Eduardo Nunez's two-run double capped a five-run eighth inning that rallied the Yankees past Sale and the Chicago White Sox 6-4 on Tuesday night for a crucial victory as they chase an AL playoff berth. Derek Jeter got the Yankees started on their...

White Sox miscues lead to Yankees big inning

Robin Ventura figured it was best to look forward after a particularly disheartening loss. Derek Jeter ended a slump with two hits and two RBIs, Alex Rodriguez reached base twice in an eight-run fourth inning and the New York Yankees battered the sloppy Chicago White Sox 9-1 on Monday in a game interrupted nearly two hours by rain. ''We have to play better than that if...

White Sox and Yankees play half-inning with 3 umps

The game between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees has started with only three umpires while Bruce Dreckman was treated for a finger injury. The teams played a half-inning with three umps. Dreckman came onto the field for the bottom of the first, umpiring at third base. He appeared to have a bandage on his left hand and was keeping it elevated whenever possible. Dreckman...

Plexiglas saves Yankees fans from dangerous shards of broken bat (VIDEO)

Bats break at baseball games all of the time — but few of the incidents are as scary as this video shows. The fans at Yankee Stadium had to take cover as Dayan Viciedo's bat shatters and flies into the stands during Wednesday night's game between the Yankees and White Sox. Luckily, a Plexiglas barrier separated them from the frighteningly sharp dagger and sword made of...

The Fringe Five: Baseball’s Most Compelling Fringe Prospects

Note: both White Sox infielder Marcus Semien and Padres right-hander Burch Smith would likely have appeared in this week’s edition of the Five, but for having been promoted earlier in the week as a result of September roster expansion. The Fringe Five is a weekly exercise (introduced in April) wherein the author utilizes regressed stats, […]
