Dan Steinberg at the Washington Post has a transcript of Nationals GM Mike Rizzo's chat with ESPN Radio's Kevin Sheehan today. At first, Rizzo says Dunn is "not on the trading block," but then implies the Nationals would think about it if they were overwhelmed. So Sheehan lays it on the line:
Sheehan: Do you understand that without a definitive statement on that it's a little bit surprising to some of the fans?
Rizzo: We are not trading Adam Dunn. That's as definitive as I can be.
Steinberg admits to being a fan of Dunn, saying "Dunn has the potential to capture casual D.C. sports fans in a way hardly anyone else on that roster does."
Rizzo may call his words "definitive," but anything can happen. Keep up with the latest rumblings on Dunn here.
