Worst of the Decade: Striking Out

The team that had the most hitters strike out this decade: 2001 Milwaukee Brewers with 1399 strikeouts. They did hit 209 home runs, which is a lot, but it was only 6th in the league.

In 2001, they actually "won" this stat by well over 100 strikeouts over the next highest team. The most prolific strikeouts artists in 2009, the Florida Marlins, are only on pace for 1267.
