Excitement for White Sox fans! Manager Ozzie Guillen has penciled Adam Dunn into the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Indians in Cleveland, giving the Big Breeze a few more chances in his quest to set the team strikeout record. Dunn only needs nine more Ks to break Dave Nicholson’s 1963 record of 175 whiffs in a season.
The outlook for a new record had dimmed earlier this month when Ozzie had handcuffed the Breeze to the bench. But with first place now safely out of sight, Ozzie has freed his slugger, and Dunn has quickly proven he’s not out of gas, fanning another six times in his last four games.
