White Sox have interest in Adam Dunn

Dunn Surprise, surprise: the White Sox are in on Adam Dunn.

Interest is "serious," says ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Of course it would be serious if a GM had just spent weeks climbing up walls trying to get Adam Dunn from the Nationals and even moving to acquire Edwin Jackson in a gambit to flip him for Dunn.

The White Sox could potentially offer Dunn a chance to play first pending what happens with Paul Konerko. And while the offense would suffer for it, the ChiSox could grit their teeth and hand left field to Dunn, shifting Juan Pierre or Carlos Quentin to DH. More likely, they'll do a song-and-dance with Dunn about their park, commitment to winning and ability to cough out gobs of dollars to make the lefty amenable to DHing.

Dunn is also grabbing interest from the A's, although his market has yet to really materialize.

White Sox have interest in Adam Dunn

Why would anyone let this guy on the field for defense? Adam Dunn should just get used to the idea that he is a DH for the rest of his career going forward.
