Could someone give me some advice on what type of pitcher I should look for to take the K/BB cat.

control pitchers are good...

brown
d wells,
pedro...

your best bet is to find stats from last year and stick 'em in a spreadsheet to find the highest K/BB ratios...

let me first mention that I've not played in a league that counts K/BB as a category, however, as with all ratios starters will have the biggest impact on this stat.

after all, starters pitch about 200 innings and relievers (of any sort) typically stop shy of 80. I would look for starters with a good K/BB ratio (some were mentioned above) and then try to make up innings with middle relievers with good ratios... anyhow, that's just me.

ok... does anyone else think it sill to have both K and K/BB?

to answer your question... there is no "one player" that will win this category for you. you have to build your entire staff geared toward ratios... SP, RP and MR... as I said before, SP would have the most impact so you can't afford to draft SP with bad K/BB ratios...

It shouldn't change your game plan much.. just factor it in as one category when deciding between pitchers.
