Quote of the Day: Adam Dunn wants to play defense

0 Comments

“Adam really doesn’t want to DH in the American League. He wants to
play the field, and believes his first base defense has reached the
adequate level. He knows he’s no Gold Glover, but believes that he’ll
get better, and is anxious to improve that aspect of his game.”

— Statement of a person “close to Adam Dunn” to MASN reporter Phil Wood.  Wood (and a lot of other people) are reporting today that Dunn and the Nationals are talking contract extension.  If that happens, and Dunn spends the remainder of his productive years cruelly attached to a glove, he will officially pass John Van Benschoten as the most miscast player in recent baseball history.
