  • Adam Dunn 2012 strikeout pace

    Adam Dunn is on pace for 265 strikeouts this season which would shatter the major league record. How many strikeouts will Dunn end up with?

    He's also on pace for 53 homers and 135 walks. What an interesting season it would be if he ends up with all these totals.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

      Well, Dunn has held the record before, so it wouldn't surprise me if he ends up holding it again.

        Dunn is a perfect example of a good "offensive player". Excellent power and ability to walk, but mediocre batting averages, and strikes out a lot.

          I'm going to guess 210.

          With all that and hitting about 100 points below his true weight, he is still a 147 OPS+ hitter. :gt

            He's also on pace for 100 runs scored and 29 doubles. He's on pace for 127 hits and just 45 singles (82 extra base hits). Has any player with 40+ home runs ever hit more HRs than singles? I wonder if Mark McGwire ever did this?

              And the type of player that BBF member csh19792001 totally despises!

                I know Barroid did in 2001.

                  Yes, he did! Bonds had 156 hits in 2001 (73 HR, 2 triples, 32 doubles, 49 singles)

                    It's always been interesting to me that someone like Dunn could be more valuable at the plate than someone like Ichiro, despite his low batting averages and high strike out totals.

                      More home runs than singles (20 HR minimum) has been accomplished 5 times in MLB history.

                      Bonds 2001 - 73 HR, 49 singles
                      McGwire 1998 - 70 HR, 61 singles
                      McGwire 1999 - 65 HR, 58 singles
                      McGwire 1995 - 39 HR, 35 singles
                      McGwire 2001 - 29 HR, 23 singles
                      My top 10 players:

                      1. Babe Ruth
                      2. Barry Bonds
                      3. Ty Cobb
                      4. Ted Williams
                      5. Willie Mays
                      6. Alex Rodriguez
                      7. Hank Aaron
                      8. Honus Wagner
                      9. Lou Gehrig
                      10. Mickey Mantle

                        Interestingly enough all within a 7 year period. Bond's delta of 24 more dongs than singles is almost unfathomable.

                          It's good to see that dunn walks again. even before 2011 his walks have declined (only 77 in 2010 when he still had a good year).

                          I think he tried to be more of a hitter and now just gave that up. he now just picks a pitch, sits on it and if he doesn't get it accepts that he strikes out. that's probably the best approach for him. I think he will cool off in the second half and not hit 50 dongs but still have a solid season.

                          I read a funny annecdote where dunn said that someone said to him "don't try to be a good hitter because you aren't".

                          I think that's what he should do. wait for a good pitch and then take a huge hack. he will miss a lot but also hit his bombs. and if he doesn't get them just take the walk or K

                            Speaking of Dunn, what ever happened to the poor man's Adam Dunn - Jack Cust? These "3 true outcomes" guys are the most boring players to watch. Joe Posnanski wrote a good article about it a year or two ago. I'll try to find it.

                            EDIT Found It.
