““In baseball, it's tough to get up for every single game, every single moment. In football, you have 90,000 fans screaming and the band's playing. I do miss that adrenaline rush."

"You think you have the game figured out, and the next day you're 0-for-5 with three punchouts. It's going to happen."

“It takes a lot to really get me nervous. Maybe it comes from playing quarterback. I learned that if you're jacked up at quarterback, you're not going to be able to do the things you need to do."

"It's always been family first for me. No matter how well my career goes, nobody here will ask anything of me. I'm just another Dunn to them."

"In my opinion I really haven't done anything yet. I still have a lot to prove. I just want to prove to myself that I can play at the highest level of baseball in the world every day."

"At Texas, I was a football player playing baseball. And the way I play I think I still am.”

“It’s great. I’m the only person that actually has claim to that record [most strikeouts in a season]."

"I hope baseball doesn't get to the point where everyone's saying, 'He takes it [steroids]. He takes it. He takes it!' because not all of us do. I've been big my whole life, and I'll always be big. That's all natural.”

“I'm a small-town guy, and moving to a huge city might be an adjustment."

"I'm a realist. And realists don't fool themselves.”

"Cincinnati is perfect for me. I've met a lot of good people there who like to fish.”

"I have fun. I always have fun. I don't really get in a hurry about anything. I just try to go with the flow and have fun, and that's how I try to play baseball.”
