Dunn breaks single season strikeout record.

Postby Baseballer02 » Thu Sep 30, 2004 11:09 pm

Have yet to see it mentioned. Adam Dunn broke the single season record for strikeout at-bats by getting number 191 on the season.

Atta boy, Adam. ;-D

Man, if he could find some way to cut out 50 K's and make better contact, he could hit 60 HR's easily.

Does that really surprise anyone?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Might be time to revisit THE thread again.... :-b

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

He's only 23. In 2001, when he was 21 he hit over 50HR between AA,AAA, and the Reds. This guy can and will hit 60+ HR sometime in the next 5 years, possibly next year. 65-70 HR some year is not out of the question.

He's not going to end up at .199, you know that, and maybe he's only going to be a lifetime .260 hitter. I'll take that with his 60HR/20SB very-soon-to-be-realized potential anyday.

As a Reds fan I will take those numbers any day. He's only 25 yrs old and he already has over 100 RBI, 100 Runs, and close to 50 HR. This is a player you build your team around for the future. I'm sure any MLB team would love to have this guy on their team.

Dunn is the a bread of slugger. I truly believe that within 10-15 years the 200 K season will be common place and no one will be bothered by it.
