At this time two years ago, Adam Dunn was a Washington National. It seems like longer because so much has changed. Dunn spent one season producing shockingly atrocious offensive numbers, only to reclaim his place among the best home run hitters in baseball and make his first All-Star Game since 2002. The Nationals have turned from a 93-loss doormat into a National League power.

Dunn could have been a part of the Nationals' turnaround, but they showed no interest in even coming close to the four-year, $56 million deal he signed with the White Sox. Dunn, who has launched 25 homers this season – already 14 more than he hit in all of 2011 – still remembers his two-year tenure in Washington fondly.
