Adam Dunn Wants Four-Year Deal But Will Consider Three

Bill Ladson reports that Adam Dunn is still seeking a four-year commitment from the Nationals, but there might be some wiggle room with the term:

"I think four years is what I want. Would I look at three? Yeah,"  Dunn said. "Do I want another two-year deal? [If I did], I'm in the same situation I'm in now. I don't want that. I want at least a four-year deal and we can talk about a three."

If it seems like Dunn is anxious, it's because he is:

Asked if he was getting a deal done with the Nats, Dunn said, "At this point, I really don't know. If you asked me this three months ago, I would have said no doubt. Now, I don't know." 

But don't think he's looking for a way out of town. He remains adamant that he wishes to stay in Washington for the long haul.

"I like it here and I like the guys here," Dunn said. "Are we playing our best baseball? No. Do I think in the future? This team will not only be good, but great or I wouldn't be going through all this to just try to stay here. I really want to be here. I like what's going on here. That's why I'm making a conscious effort to stay here."
