Quote of the Day: Adam Dunn on trade possibilities

6 Comments

“It’s very easy for me to block it out. I understand it’s
my career, but the options are pretty good. I stay where I want to stay,
or I go and probably get a chance to play for a World Series,
definitely in a pennant race. That’s two pretty awesome options. I’m in a
win-win situation.”

Adam Dunn, talking about why he blocks out the trade chatter.

Dunn was routinely knocked when he played for the Reds for having a bad attitude and being lackadaisical.  Every time he opens his mouth, however, he sounds like a remarkably grounded and healthy person.  Maybe that just doesn’t fly with the Marty Brennamans of the world, but I can’t imagine not wanting a sensible guy like Dunn in my clubhouse.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
