In case you haven't noticed the Marlins are striking out a bit.
The ''whiff'' count now numbers 263.
That's how many times the Marlins have struck out this season, keeping them on pace to challenge the major-league record of 1,399 set by the 2001 Milwaukee Brewers.
If the Marlins maintain their current rate, they will wind up with 1,420 K's.
While that is true, the Marlins are also leading the NL in Runs, Triples, RBI and OPS. They are tied for second in Doubles and are fourth in Home Runs. The guys are probably somewhat overly aggressive but they are putting up the numbers and unfortunately strikeouts is one of them. But it is not like they are anemic at the plate.
