Adam Dunn isn't sure what he will decide to do in the offseason about the rest of his baseball career.

Speaking with the media Monday for the first time since telling an reporter last weekend he was considering retirement, the 34-year-old veteran said he is no clearer on the subject a few days later.

"It's going to be a decision where I'm going to sit down with the people who are important to me and make a quick decision, whether it's tomorrow, whether it's February," Dunn said. "I don't know how to go about it, because I've never done it before. We'll see. I'm not really worried about it."

Dunn is in the last year of his contract with the White Sox, so unrestricted free agency awaits in the winter if he wants to pursue it. He said that building his career numbers wouldn't weigh in the decision, and neither would starting over in a new city, since the White Sox aren't expected to offer him a new contract.

"That doesn't factor in," he said of playing for another new team. "Actually none of it probably factors in, other than it comes down to whether I want to do this again or not. As long as I'm having fun doing it, I'm going to continue doing it, whether it's today, tomorrow, a week from now, 10 years from now, I don't know. There are a lot of factors."

One of the considerations is his family. His two sons are growing up, and he is starting to feel the pull of family life competing with baseball.

"It's not just going out and playing baseball anymore," said Dunn, who is hitting .227 with 19 home runs and 49 RBIs. "I'm not a 22-year-old single guy anymore. There are a lot of things that play into coming back and your decision."

Reaching the 500-homer plateau apparently isn't one of them. Dunn, who went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the White Sox's 8-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, is currently sitting on 459 career homers.

"I'm not a numbers-oriented guy," he said. "I don't care about all that. I care about the next two months, or whatever it is, and we'll go from there. The numbers don't matter to me. I'm not going to stay around to chase 500 home runs or this and that. I'm going to do what I feel like I do, and we'll see. I'm not going to stay around for the money or numbers or anything like that."
