CHICAGO -- The White Sox have put up a "Get 'R Dunn" sign in right-center, just above the visiting bullpen at U.S. Cellular Field, with the countdown to Adam Dunn's 400th career home run represented by the number 396 as part of the sign. Dunn won't bother beating around the bush and stating that he doesn't think about reaching this monumental plateau achieved by 49 other players.
"You know, yeah, you think about it," Dunn said. "I'm not going to sit here and lie and say I don't. It doesn't mean anything right now because if I knew that I was retiring and this is my last year ... obviously it would mean a lot more. I'm hoping, I plan on hitting a whole lot more.
"I feel like I've got a whole lot of baseball left in me. It's just kind of a cool number right now. It's not something I'm going to hang my hat on yet. It's a cool number and when and if it gets here, it will be cool and then it's over. It's on to the next one."
