    Dunn signs deal with the White Sox

    The Chicago White Sox are closing in on a four-year, $56-million deal for free-agent slugger Adam Dunn, according to a major-league source with knowledge of the situation.

    I like it. I like that he won't be in the NL Central and he'll likely thrive as a part time 1st baseman and DH.

    Embrace your inner DH, Adam!

    Great deal for both sides. It's nice to see Dunner land with a contender. I wish him the best, he'll always be one of my favorites.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    He's also only getting $56 million over 4 years.

    14 million bucks a year, or essentially more than any other Red has ever made in salary.

    Yet it's "only" 56 for 4 years eh?

    If he does go on to get 600 and make HOF, there is a decent chance the HOF chooses the Reds cap for him, isn't there?

    I feel like he's finally found where he belongs, although that Ozzie factor could ruin that idea.

    Good luck to Dunn, who finally will play on a team that puts him at his natural position of DH.

    I really don't think that the Ozzie factor will be that big of a deal, especially with Dunn....but I could be wrong, I have been before.
