According to a news release posted on Facebook, the Chicago White Sox have traded Adam Dunn for Oakland A's pitcher Nolan Sanburn, a minor leaguer, and cash considerations.
Dunn had 20 home runs and 54 RBI in 106 games for the Sox this season. Some sports fans aren't exactly sad to see Dunn go.
I didn’t hate you, and I never booed you. Nor do I blame you for the way things went down. But I’m not sad to see you go, Adam Dunn.— The Chicago Homer (@TheChicagoHomer) August 31, 2014
According to the Chicago Tribune, "Dunn agreed to waive his no-trade clause to make the deal happen before Sunday night's deadline for postseason eligibility."
Dunn, who "often failed to meet the expectations that come with a $56 million contract," has a month left with the Sox.
