I've already talked to somebody who works for the White Sox and he told me that unless Dunn hits better the rest of the season, he won't be on the team next year. Even if the White Sox have to eat the last year of his contract, he won't be here in 2014. That being said, it looks like the White Sox will have 4 holes to fill next year. We will need a new DH, 1B, LF, and Catcher. This should be a very interesting off season. I would love to see the White Sox sign Seattles first baseman, Morales who's a free agent at the end of the year.

Can we send him down to triple A? Maybe this would send a message.

Don't think he can be sent down unless he's injured without his consent.

I wonder if a team has ever sent down their leader in HR/BB/2nd in RBI's down in June.

What is the benefit of releasing Adam Dunn other than fans can stop crying about him?

None. He isn't stealing playing time from anyone worth a damn.

Most players who lead their teams in those categories aren't hitting .165 with a .264 OBP either.

I don't get what's so hard to understand about this.

So I told my 13 year-old son the story of one-armed Pete Gray, who played for the St. Louis Browns in 1945. Of course he immediately replied "He had a higher batting average than Adam Dunn, right?". Yep...

That's why you don't replace him with some AAA nobody.

Replacing actual big leaguers, bad as they may be, with minor league fodder just because they 'can't be any worse' is exactly how you end up with the 2007 White Sox. At least Adam Dunn will still give us 40-odd HR by the time the season is played out. In a down year like this one I'll take that over watching Andy Gonzalez, Luis Terrero and Danny Richar any day of the week.

I guess it would seem like there is no point to a person who just looks at a sheet of stats, but to the person who acknowledges the mental aspect of game the benefit is obvious.

Jerry Owens! Andy Sisco! Ryan Bukvich! The immortal Dewon Day!

I think I've made everyone here feel just a little better about the 2013 White Sox
