Adam Dunn underwent an appendectomy last Wednesday and six days later he’s back in the White Sox’s lineup, starting at designated hitter and batting third tonight against the Trevor Cahill and the A’s.

Chicago went 4-2 in his absence with Mark Teahen (three times), Carlos Quentin (twice), and Juan Pierre (once) filling in at DH.

Dunn made a rapid recovery considering Matt Holliday returned to the Cardinals’ lineup very quickly following his appendectomy and ended up missing nine days.

    So is he a donkey or a wolverine?

      Both. Think about it……

    I have it on good authority that Adam Dunn hates baseball, is horrible at baseball, and is a pansy. No way he had surgery, he just took off 6 days after forging a note from his doctor.

      Son, I told you that in confidence…..this one belongs to the Brennaman’s.

    I’d be more impressed if Dunn returned to the lineup after a brain transplant. Maybe then he could figure out how to cut down on his strikeouts.
