While Adam Dunn was being introduced to the press in his new home park and joking about hitting signs beyond the right field wall in U.S. Cellular Field, the Washington Nationals' GM Mike Rizzo just released the following statement in response to the news that 31-year-old 1B/DH had signed a 4-year/$56M dollar deal with the Chicago White Sox, officially ending his two-year relationship with the Nats:
Mike Rizzo: "The Washington Nationals wish Adam Dunn and his family the best of luck and good will in Chicago. Adam contributed much to the Nationals and to the Washington, D.C. community. He will be missed, but will remain an important figure in the early history of this franchise and will always be a part of the Nationals baseball family."
In 2 years, Adam Dunn played 317 games, posting a .264/.378/.520 slash line with 65 doubles, 76 HR's and 208 RBI's as a Nat.
