Adam Dunn 'hoping to come in one day and feel terrible'

Adam Dunn went 1 for 3 in Washington's 6-3 victory over Atlanta Tuesday night at Nationals Park, and although his one hit was was a home run deep to center field, he nearly missed hitting two more.

Dunn's fifth home run of the season came in the sixth inning off reliever Eric O'Flaherty with no outs and the base empty. In his other two at-bats, Dunn drove the ball well, but they stayed in the ballpark.

Dunn is batting .236, but making solid contact three straight times is an encouraging sign for the first baseman who has been looking to break out this season.

"I felt good," Dunn said. "I've been feeling good all year and hadn't done jack, so I'm hoping to come in one day and feel terrible. I got some pitches to hit tonight and only got one hit but just keep swinging I guess."

So we're given to understand that Pudge is the final arbiter of who gets the silver wig. I take it that means he's the judge in the court, too?

Pudge can reign as long he keeps playing well, and helps the team stay cohesive. He is the one sure HOFer on the team.

+1/2St.

When did we learn that Pudge is the arbiter? I missed the piece but would be interested in seeing it.
