- Who’s behind that steady breeze on the south side?
The White Sox have played 32 games this season. How many do you think Adam Dunn has fanned in?
Correct! He hasn’t missed at missing once—not for a whole game, anyway. Add to that his last four games of 2011, and the Big Breeze has a 36-game missing streak going. That’s one shy of the record, which Dunn will likely tie in the Cell tonight against KC.
The 37-game record is held by Oak Park native Bill Stoneman, a Montreal pitcher drafted by the Cubs in 1966. Stoneman’s streak started in April 1971 and ended the following April. But, well, he was a pitcher, with a lifetime batting average of .086.
