That’s what one general manager told Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com.
White Sox general manager Ken Williams met with Adam Dunn’s agent Greg Genske on Tuesday in order to determine what the slugger is hoping to find in free agency.
Of course, Williams coveted Dunn around the trade deadline, but eventually settled for Manny Ramirez on a straight waiver claim from the Dodgers in August. That worked out real well, didn’t it?
Earlier this month, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reported that the Nationals have had a three-year deal for Dunn on the table for three months, but that the team was unwilling to go to a fourth year. Dunn is about as consistent of a home run hitter as you can find in this game, but he just turned 31 and as you probably know, players with his body type and skillset don’t tend to age particularly well.
With that in mind, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com wrote yesterday that Dunn could finally relent and become a full-time DH if it means he could get a longer contract. With many of his suitors in the American League, that’s probably a wise strategy, whether he really wants to be a DH or not.
