Adam Dunn… [UPDATE]

UPDATE: Garfien gives us the long version:

Adam Dunn had experienced stomach pains before, but never quite like this. For several days, there were shooting pains coming from the upper reaches of his abdomen. He assumed it wasn’t anything serious.

That was until he flipped on the television while in his hotel room in Kansas City on Tuesday morning and saw a story about the Cardinal’s Matt Holliday who needed his appendix taken out after playing on Opening Day.

The reporter mentioned Holliday’s symptoms. Dunn made a mental checklist

“Got that … got that … got that,” he said to himself.

Uh-oh.

Wednesday at 2:30 a.m., White Sox general manager Kenny Williams received a phone call. It was team trainer Herm Schneider calling from a Kansas City hospital, informing him that Williams’ $56 million slugger was about to have an emergency appendectomy.
