CHICAGO -- Adam Dunn spoke to MLB.com on Saturday about the distinct possibility that this could be the final season of his 14-year, 459-homer career. Dunn addressed that topic again on Monday to a larger group of media, echoing some of the same points.

The left-handed slugger understands that there could be a need for his particular services, but he won't play just for the money, and he won't play to chase milestones, such as 500 homers.

He is not yet at the point of seeking others' advice on the matter.

"It's just like anything," Dunn said. "You're used to doing something your whole life, and I know it's going to be an adjustment, but I'm fortunate to be able to put myself in this situation at a pretty young age to make the call. There's nothing bad about that. I'm not sad about that. I'm actually pretty happy about it.

"I don't know. I don't have the answer. If I had to pick it today, I know what the answer would be."

When asked what that answer would be, he smiled and responded, "None of your business."
