Adam Dunn set the White Sox season strikeout record last night—and he did it in one of the stranger at bats you’ll see.
A week ago I thought he no longer could break the record; he simply had too few whiff opportunities remaining.
But you can never put anything past the Big Breeze, unless you’re a pitcher. On Saturday, he began a torrid missing pace, going 0 for 3 with 2 Ks. Sunday, another 0 for 3, with 2 more Ks. Monday, 0 for 2, with 2 more Ks.
This put him within a whiff of Dave Nicholson’s 1963 club record of 175.
