Dunn Says He’ll ‘Go Home’ If He’s Not Enjoying The Game Anymore

CHICAGO (CBS) — White Sox DH Adam Dunn would quite literally take his bat and go home if he no longer derived pleasure from the game, according to a published report.

Dunn tells Yahoo Sports: “If I’m not having fun anymore, I’ll go home. Flat out. I’ll go home. I mean that. Swear to goodness. I’ll. Go. Home.”

He says he enjoys playing even though he “sucks” by his own admission, but if he ceases to enjoy the game, he will quit, Yahoo reported.

Dunn has only been batting .158 lately, according to Yahoo, and he has had a profoundly disappointing season with the White Sox despite high hopes. He calls the season “the most difficult thing of my life,” Yahoo reported.

He is in the first of a four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox.

But later in the interview with Yahoo, Dunn backtracked and said he cannot imagine making good on his threat to quit.

He said there was “zero chance” because “you can’t get this competition anywhere else,” Yahoo reported.

    take the card out from the movie Bull Durham…”I’m just glad to be a part of the team….Glad to do anything I can ect ect” Put a microphone in front of these morons and there is a really good chance they will say something stupid. I would walk away also from my “job” if I had 2 million in the bank. I don’t need that much. Kids education and my home and I’m set…
    Just shut up and play.

    I love how they don’t include the questions he was asked to get those answers. It always peaks my curiosity when they leave that fact out.
