The Big Donkey rides off into the sunset

There are so few of guys over my history following the game that I feel like I had a real connection with – Adam Dunn was probably at the top of that totem pole of players. Probably my favorite player of my adult life retired today. When I first got my drivers license, when Dunn was a 21-year old pup; I started driving myself two hours to games just to see him play. The first time...

After Oakland's wild-card loss, Adam Dunn says he plans to retire

This probably wasn't how Adam Dunn imagined things would go. Dunn was traded to the Oakland Athletics from the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 31 as Oakland looked to add postseason power. It was going to be the slugger's first time in the playoffs in his 14-year career. He finished the regular season with 2,001 MLB games played, the most of any active player who hadn't been...

Adam Dunn weirdly consistent, hits HR in first game with A's

Adam Dunn is a peculiar beast…and I mean that in the most positive of ways. The 34-year-old slugger was dealt Sunday by the Chicago White Sox to the Oakland A’s and, because people like a story, all the talk became about how he would end his streak of 1977 games (and counting) without a playoff appearance. What’s missing is Dunn’s consistency. And, no, I’m not talking about...
