What's the record for strikeouts in a year?

Postby Ehlana » Tue May 15, 2007 2:14 pm

By my count B. J. Upton is on pace for 210+ strikeouts. That seems like an awful lot.

heres a weird observation. most of the guys on this list are recent yet the strikeout leaders per season for pitchers arent. 300 k's used to be the huge threshold to cross and now its 200.

well, a major reason pitchers aren't reaching that plateau is because their workloads are lighter. i don't think that k/9 rates have decreased dramatically.

This is thanks to the popularization of pitch counts and various bullpen specialists. Pitchers used to throw 120, 130 or more pitches to finish a game if they felt OK. Now, managers are much quicker to yank a pitcher. Set-up men, 7th-inning guys, lefty-lefty specialists, etc, are used much more often as well.
