I'm going to a place with a chance to not only get into the postseason but also have a legitimate chance to get a ring.

Adam Dunn is probably about to embark on the final month is his baseball career, and he hopes it turns into two final months.

Dunn told reporters Sunday that this would likely be his final season in the big leagues while discussing the trade that sent him from the White Sox to the Oakland A's.

“This is probably going to be it," Dunn said. "I think that also weighed a lot, too. This is an opportunity. I’ve been playing a long time and haven’t got this opportunity, so I’m going to try to make the most of it.”

Dunn agreed to waive his no-trade clause Sunday, accepting a deal to a team that's in position to reach the postseason, something Dunn has never done in his 14-year career.

“I don’t think (I could be talked out of it)," he said. "Kind of the way that everything’s gone down, and the family. I think you know when it’s time. I feel like now’s as good a time as any.”
