(Mid)-Morning Commute: An Adam Dunn Reality Check

Everything you need to know about D.C. Sports in one place.

Thanks to two home runs against the Diamondbacks last night, Adam Dunn now leads the NL in round-trippers. And that's ... wow.

I know, this isn't exactly profound, but it's kind of crazy to even consider. I realize Dunn is over 30, and I realize why one could argue it was important to trade him. But even though it's not rational, there's something about just letting the NL leader in home runs go that makes me uneasy. 

I know, that's not much analysis, but it's late. Let's get onto the links:

Today's must-reads from around the SB Nation network:

  • In case you missed it, you need to check out Hogs Haven's exclusive interview with Dan Snyder (part 1part 2part 3). Kudos to those guys and all the local media coverage they're getting because of that story.
  • Black and Red United has some thoughts on D.C. United's decision to fire coach Curt Onalfu yesterday.
  • What's the best-case scenario for Maryland football this season? Testudo Times breaks it down.

On tap at SB Nation D.C.: Be sure to check out my feature about Redskins' rookie receiver Terrence Austin, who is impressing everyone out at Redskins Park this week. Also, Jake Whitacre writes about the one athlete that best embodies the spirit of the city, for better or worse. His answer may surprise you.
