    We have 8 players on pace for 100 plus Ks. Stan Musial averaged 37 Ks / year over 22 years. We have 8 players with over 37 strikeouts right now…

    Now now Jim,

    The fPIR and the BANIP and the xWRO all show strikeouts don’t really matter.

    Sarcasm above. And like the Reds announcer Chris Welsh said about a year ago….”It wasn’t long ago that it was embarrassing to strikeout…..”

    Stan also only had to face a handful of pitchers with stuff the equal to the average pitcher today. It’s a lot easier to avoid Ks against 85 than 95+ with movement and specialized relief pitching.

    Yeah, I think pitchers today are more advanced than hitters, when compared to say 50 years ago. Every team these days has 10 guys that throw mid 90s.

    You don’t see any classic “ junk ball” guys anymore. Jamie Moyer may have been the last of that style.
