    I am not having fun at work either. I don't really want to hear about a baseball player complaining about not having enough fun and getting 15 million.

    the difference is, that you don´t have as much money on the bank as dunn...
    if he has no fun at work, he can retire if he wants to and doesn´t need to think about the future (financially)...

    I understand him and I think it would be a good decision.. if someone is not motivated or doesn´t want to play ball at the highest level, he shouldn´t...

    Don't think he was complaining! He has stated before he won't play if he isn't having fun, I take him for his word. If only all of us could say that if we weren't having fun at work we would move on!!!

    I think he would be more of a Red Sox guy, specially with that short short porch in right field. Could you imagine if he had played his whole career at Fenway...WOW!!!

    Uh, if dude is willing to give up money on the table because he isn't having fun isn't that better than just sticking around for the money?

    OH, I agree. However, don't talk about it during a season in which you are getting paid that kind of money, especially when you haven't made the decision.

    If he comes back next year, which I expect he will, what was the point in making that statement. It just comes across as looking for sympathy or that it has been such a chore to play this year. I guess that goes with the territory of never having a job other than playing baseball.

    Jerk!

    If he was on my team and gives an honest day's work, and tries his best, it doesn't matter if he has fun or not.

    I am just saying why bring it up?

    Re: Dunn done?

    This just seems to be a totally cliche.

    Dunn probably wasn't having fun when he let himself go and had that horrible first year with the White Sox. (Dunn admitted he didn't prepare himself well for the season).

    I guess it depends on Dunn's definition of fun.. Let's say hypothetically, Dunn was a free agent this winter, and he could only get a non-roster invite to spring training.
    I'm guessing baseball would not be fun at that point..
    As long as he's making that big contract, I'm guessing baseball is fun for him.

    Think about it, Dunn chose the Nationals because they were the only team willing to give him more than a 1 year contact at the time. He's all about the money, and there's nothing wrong with that. Most of us would change jobs in a heartbeat for more money or more job secuirty. It's just kind of lame to give his "I'm only going to do this if it's fun" talk.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
