As we come closer and closer to the Trade Deadline, rumors will continue to swirl around Adam Dunn until he's either dealt, signed to an extension or the deadline passes. Though Dunn told Adam Kilgore he still wants to play on the Nationals, its becoming clear that he would like to have a resolution sooner, rather than later:
"I mean, it's been frustrating because of this, of having to answer the questions. That's the thing that's frustrating. Other than that, whatever. They're going to do what's best for them. I'm just here, man. Employee number 44."
That sounds like the words of someone who is teetering on the fine line between and annoyed, but motivated and flat-out disgruntled. As the questions grow louder and louder in the following days, the potential to push Dunn over the edge will continue to grow. Outside of Strasburgmania, which is always the top story, Dunn's status as a National is the storyline to watch for the rest of the month.
