Slugger Adam Dunn has seen Jesse Crain and Matt Thornton traded shortly before they will become free agents as well as close friend Jake Peavy despite nearly $23 million left in salary obligations owed to him through 2014. But Dunn who is signed through 2014 isn’t worried about encountering a similar fate as the Chicago White Sox rebuild their roster. “I don’t fear any of it” Dunn said Wednesday night about four hours before Peavy was traded to the Boston Red Sox in a three-team trade. “I’ve been down this road” said Dunn who was dealt from the Reds to the Diamondbacks in August of 2008. “I can’t affect it. I’m not worried about it. If it happens cool. If it doesn’t happen cool. I don’t ever worry about that.” Nevertheless Dunn is shocked by the Sox’s inability to earn a playoff berth since joining them as a free agent prior to the 2011 season. “There are some things that happened these 2 ½ years or so that I’ve been here I would have never envisioned” Dunn said. “I don’t think anyone would. It’s been the weirdest 2 ½ years obviously of my life. It (stinks). There’s nothing fun nothing great about what’s going on.
