Be nice to see. Not sure though. Dude just looked lost last year.
Dunn vows to be comeback player of year - chicagotribune.com
Hope he fulfills that promise.
Lol... He's finally showing some balls. I'm not a big fan of his right now.
At least he knows that we know that he stunk it up last season.
I think he knows how bad it was last year. He was booed nearly every at-bat he had at U.S. Cellular Field. I'm pulling for him big time. The Sox need him to bounce back and he needs to earn his paycheck. Haha
I hope he does mash this year and surprises me, coz I was one of the ones that was booing him.
If he can hit around .250 and bang 30 homers, I would say that can be classified as a success for Dunn. He looked like somebody who'd never played baseball last year. It was almost embarrassing to watch. Even with his pitiful batting average, he still drew a lot walks.
Hell I'll take his career .243 as long as he puts out about 35+ long balls with Paulie.
2013 Attendance Tracker: 3-1
So you guys think he's gonna get 'it' back this year at the plate, huh...
I'm not as confident. Don't get me wrong, I hope he does, its just gonna take a lot for me to consider him one of our own...
Im glad hes confident, but he hasn't done shit in a Sox uniform.
He looked like he was taking BP with a wiffle ball bat last year.

Him & Paulie could have 70-80 HR's combined. Do it big man.
He can only go up from last year's dismal year-long performance. There's some optimism there.
People need to get used to the fact that he strikes out. A lot. In 2010 when he had 38 HRs, he struck out 199 times! White Sox fans really need to get that shit out of their heads that him striking out is a bad thing. Who cares how he gets out?
What matters is that he hits home runs and walks a lot/gets on base; which he didn't do any of last year (292 OBP...really??).
As long as he hits 35-40 HRs this year and has at least a 375 OBP, he could strike out 300 times and I won't care.
Agreed, Saber. If I had a choice, I'd rather him K than ground out, especially with runners on base.
He's got a LOT to prove....he looked awful last season.
