Thome beats Bonds TTO record

I do enjoy stats sometimes!

Jason Lukehart at the Ground Ball with Eyes blog has a fascinating post about how Jim Thome has topped Barry Bonds' all-time record in Three True Outcomes -- the combo of walk, strikeout and HR that was first created by the ability of Rob Deer to produce one of the three...

Hat tip to Baseball Think Factory for the link!

In case you're wondering, Thome struck out twice in Thursday's game against the Angels.  

Here's the chart for highest percentage of TTOs. Pat the Bat is No. 10. Numbers are for Ks, BBs, HRs, TTOs, plate appearances and career TTO.
