Which strikeout pitchers are best?

Postby Zito is God » Mon May 31, 2010 11:59 pm

The ones that K the majority of their guys swinging or the ones that K the majority of their guys looking and why? Not sure if there is a difference, but this came to mind while I watched Doug Fister get lit up by the Twins but somehow K 6 (so far) and most of them looking (which for some reason impresses me more since it seems to just freeze hitters and make them look foolish).

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I'd prefer the guys who K more swinging, as the pitchers who K more looking will generally have to rely on the umpire giving them the corners every now and again.

I'd rather have pitchers who miss bats than get calls.

I think it's weird that this post was started after somebody watched a Doug Fister start. He's one of the last pitchers I would ever expect to see associated with strikeouts unless you are talking about a pitcher's inability to get them.
