Dunn admits thinking about quitting

Adam Dunn(notes) is talking about quitting. He’s talking about it like he’s been thinking about it, like it’s always a possibility, a failsafe if this misery continues. And then he’s talking about it like the chances of him doing it are infinitesimal because he adores baseball, even as it corrodes his sense of self. And then he’s talking about it like he’s not sure what he thinks, which tends to happen when a 31-year-old with 363 career home runs suddenly forgets how to hit a baseball.

Konerko Rumors - as soon as tomorrow?

The White Sox could have the team they wanted in July as soon as Monday if all goes to plan with Paul Konerko. The free-agent first baseman, who has spent the last 12 seasons on the South Side of Chicago, could reach a deal with a team at the Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla, according to's Jon Heyman. Heyman reported that Konerko and/or his agent, Craig Landis, are scheduled to meet with White Sox officials on Monday, and that the deal could be worth $13 million a season. The length is unclear, though with Konerko turning 35 next March, it doesn't figure to be more than three or four years.

Ozzie Guillen shrugged his shoulders

Manager Ozzie Guillen shrugged his shoulders Saturday night after watching the latest shortcomings of the White Sox's offense. "If one guy was struggling, then we can make some changes," Guillen said after the Sox were held to four hits by Scott Kazmir and five relievers in a 2-0 loss to Tampa Bay before a rare sellout crowd of 36,048 at Tropicana Field. "But when everyone else does the same stuff, you really can't do too much. You just make up the lineup and hope those guys come out of it one day. They continue to struggle. We try to find a way how, and make different changes here and there, but they're not doing what they're supposed to do." ... "It's a lot of stress for me and the hitting coach more than the pitchers," Guillen said calmly. "It drives Greg Walker crazy, also myself. I hate that because I'm the one who has to talk for them. I'm the one who has to say something about them not hitting. I come with the same answers every day. "How many different answers am I going to give you guys and the fans? We're still waiting. It's hard to keep waiting. … We're not going to get those guys out of here. We're going to keep working hard, and maybe one day they hit the way they can." ...
