The 100 Best Pitchers' Duels of 2011
by BILL JAMES

follow the link ...

Among the 100 top pitchers' duels of 2011, Cliff Lee and Jered Weaver were involved in 11 each, Tim Lincecum in 10, Verlander in eight, Doug Fister, Cole Hamels, and Clayton Kershaw in seven. The best major league pitcher who wasn't involved in any of the top 100 was Yovanni Gallardo, although Gallardo did have one 1-0 game that somehow didn't make the list.

What did I really learn from doing this? One thing: Umpires' mistakes are greatly magnified in a pitchers' duel. If you look at ordinary games, maybe one in 50 turns on an umpire's mistake. If the pitchers are dominant, it goes to more like one in ten.

My list of the 100 best pitchers' duels of 2011 is better than your list, for one reason and one reason only.

You don't have any list.

Well, at least James is more productive when he's bored than I am.
