TEMPE, Ariz. -- Adam Dunn is having fun playing baseball.
Sure, the White Sox have only suited up for two Cactus League contests and Dunn has just four trips to the plate. But here's the honest truth about the big designated hitter.
Even if things go south as they did for the 32-year-old last year, and we are talking deep south with his much talked about and analyzed .159 average, that feeling of fun isn't going to change.
"It's why you play. This is a fun game," Dunn told MLB.com before Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Angels at Diablo Stadium. "Sometimes, when you take that out and you take the fun part out of it ... . That's not who I am.
"That won't happen this year, I promise you. I don't care what happens."
