To the best of my recollection, I am the only poster who suggested two years ago that the White Sox would be better off acquiring Nate Schierholtz than signing Adam Dunn (for reasons explained at length in this thread -- it being why this thread involves mention of Adam Dunn and Carlos Quentin) and I have never advocated trading, have always advocated resigning Paul Konerko going back to the last century. Your comment doesn't seem to be founded in any sort of reality.

For what it's worth, I believe Adam Dunn is the same hitter he was before he came to the White Sox. His numbers aren't as good, but having watched him play, I didn't believe his White Sox numbers would approach his pre-White Sox numbers. Whether his numbers made him a good hitter in the National League (I didn't believe that to be the case, seeing how pitchers got him out, seeing how little contact he made etc.) is irrelevant. I didn't see any way he was going to help the White Sox win.
