Weak in Review.
Most baseball fans know Adam Dunn is having a really, really bad year. They found out Wednesday just how bad it was.
Dunn’s struggles ranked just below the fallout from the recent debt crisis on the front page of Wednesday’s edition of The New York Times, just below the fold on the nation’s newspaper of record.
“As Chicago’s Designated Hero, Slugger Strikes Out,” reads the headline of the story by Sam Borden.
Historians years from now will look back on Aug. 3, 2011, and come away with two conclusions: Averting a default didn’t solve the U.S.‘s economic problems, and Dunn had a putrid 2011 season.
...Dunn seems optimistic he’ll turn around his performance in the final 54 games and that the White Sox will be glad they signed him by the time his contract runs out in 2015.
There are 1,519 days between now and Sept. 30, 2015—roughly the time the White Sox’ regular season would be ending—which is a lot of daily newspaper editions and a lot of front pages for Dunn’s struggles to be publicized.
