This from the Sporting News Today

Chicago White Sox DH Adam Dunn did something Friday night that he hasn’t done all season: go an entire game without striking out.
 
When reporters informed him that his 36 consecutive games (dating back to last season) with a K was a modern-day record, Dunn took it in stride.

Yes but the record is held by a pitcher. Dunn holds the record for a position player.

He is having a pretty decent season FWIW.

1.030 OPS is just "pretty decent"? :lol:

Hey, I'm a White Sox fan, so I'm all about Adam Dunn being the runaway AL comeback player of the year. But I assume this board is fairly hostile to Dunn, so I temper my praise of him around here.

I can't speak for everyone, but my feeling is that the vast majority here liked Dunn or at least bear him no ill will.

Agreed, always a fan favorite, and he'll get a standing O if he ever plays here.

I think a lot of us on the board want him to kick butt

There are only a handful of people here who are hostile to Dunn or who thought he should change his name to Done.

He's done. It's sad.

Coming from Ed Stroud's avatar, that is high praise.

He cracked me up when he was on that chef reality show.  Said something about putting one of those meatball sandwiches in his back pocket so when he got hungry in the 6th inning he could pull it out and eat it :lmao:

Actually, none of those players are on the team anymore.  Lannan in AAA and Capps (I think it was) on the Twins.

Last season aside, that's sort of an insult to Dunn.

No need to temper at all.

Kingman career:  .236 / .302 /   .478.  442 HRs in 7400 PAs (roughly 1 per 16.4), 1816Ks

Dunn: . 244 .374 .505, 376 HRs in 6700 PAs (roughly 1 per 17.8), 1856Ks

Dunn strikes out more, but hits more HRs, not a terrible comparison.

99 points on OPS is a huge difference.
