Year of the Pitcher –

Strikeouts are rising in the 2010 season which is being called the year of the pitcher.  Pitchers have the upper hand over hitters similar to the 60’s and 70’s.  Strikeout totals and per nine innings are at record numbers.  Lincecum is making a run at another strikeout crown this year and is leading with 208 K’s on the year.  Right behind Lincecum are Halladay and Hamels at 201.
