Adam Dunn on zero postseasons, a new twist on retirement, rejecting a new name tag and where he’d fit on A’s basketball team

Adam Dunn has played 1,977 games, the most among active players without appearing in a postseason. He’s 15th on the all-time list, which is topped by Ernie Banks (2,528 games) and includes six Hall of Famers. Dunn is confident he’ll be taken off that list this year. Before today’s game, I mentioned if there’s a right team to be on, this could be it. He chimed in by saying, “This is GOING to be it. I mean, not only do I believe it, I know it.” A day after making his A’s debut with a dramatic first-inning homer, Dunn said he likes the looseness in the clubhouse. “That’s the...

The offense mostly was invisible for seven innings, and Sonny Gray matched his second shortest start of the season, getting lifted after he surrendered six runs in five innings, as...
