Ryan Howard went 0-for-4 today with three strikeouts. Why am I reporting on Howard? Because he now has 168 strikeouts in 442 atbats, making him only 27 strikeouts shy of Dunn's record of 195 set in 2004. Now strikeouts don't bother me one bit, however, I would love to see Howard set the strikeout record just to see if he gets the same treatment from announcers and fans that Dunn does.
In 2004, Dunn struckout 195 times in 568 atbats in a total of 161 games.
This year, Howard has struckout 168 times in 442 atbats in a total of 119 games (Howard has missed 18 games due to injury). He's right on pace to break the record even with the missed 18 games.
I'll update this thread after each game until the end of the season. I hope he breaks it to further prove that strikeouts are just another out.
