Before last homestand, Dunn says he wants to stay a Nat
Adam Dunn reiterated Monday that he wants to remain with the Washington Nationals. Even if he first becomes a free agent. "I still want to be here. I don't know what's going to happen," Dunn said before the Nationals opened their final homestand of the season. "Just because I go to free agency doesn't mean I can't come back here or that I don't want to come back here. I do." The slugger leads the Nationals with 35 home runs and 93 RBIs. His representatives are talking to the team about a new contract, but Dunn says he wouldn't be surprised if the process takes so long he becomes a free agent. Players have 15 days after the World Series to file for free agency.

Jamie McCourt wants a judge to throw out the pact and split the Dodgers, the stadium and the surrounding property, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, between her and Frank McCourt.
