It took more than a century of baseball for someone to strike out 200 times in a season. Just two years later, Mark Reynolds could have company in that distinction.
The Diamondbacks' Reynolds broke the threshold in 2008 with 204 strikeouts, then upped it to 223 last season. This year he's headed for a truly ugly record: more strikeouts than batting average points.
The Nationals are thankful Adam Dunn won't be matching that feat, but he does have a shot at reaching 200 Ks. Washington, idle on Thursday, has three games left this weekend against the Mets, and has 195 strikeouts. Dunn averages 1.3 strikeouts per game, so if he plays all three it could be close.
