DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the phenomena of the last few years of the pitcher who averages a strikeout an inning and yet still has an era over 4.00, even 5.00 ala Aaron Heilman?
(David from Montclair)
It's incidental to the times, which involve more strikeouts in general than you'd find, say, decades back. Remember how worked up people were about Glendon Rusch after 2001, because of "all those strikeouts"? In the end, he was just Glendon Rusch, not some future ace in the making. (Christina Kahrl)
