Thats not true at all. If he hits .280/.350/.550 with 35+ Hr and 100+ RBI it wont matter if he strikes out 125 times in a season. The only person that people complain about with strikeouts around here is AdamDunn and he strikes out mroe than anyone in the history of the game. If Adam Dunn were to strike out 180 times and do what Ryan Howard did last year, no one would complain because he put up 'numbers'. Honestly, your typical fan doesnt care that Adam Dunn walks 100 times a year because he doesnt drive in runs despite being a home run hitter.
