How is the K argument irrelevant?
It's completely relevant to the discussion. If you let batters put the ball into play anything can happen no matter how good of a pitch it was. The only way to prevent 'bad luck' (ie bloop singles, seeing-eye singles, swinging bunts, errors, etc.) is to prevent him from making contact - i.e. a strikeout.
No, getting outs is relevant. Ground out, fly out, strike out it doesn't matter. In fantasy sure because K's are a category used in most every league but not real baseball.
K is the most important skill for a pitcher. You are seriously smoking something fierce if you think otherwise.
