Strikeout Kings


ML Leaders - SO/9 (Qualified - 2011)
14.21 Matt Garza, Cubs (6.6, 2010)
12.66 Jonathan Sanchez, Giants (9.5)
12.19 Cliff Lee, Phillies (7.8)
11.76 Jered Weaver, Angels (9.3)
11.70 Bud Norris, Astros (9.3)
11.57 Edwin Jackson, White Sox (7.8)
11.57 Tim Lincecum, Giants (9.8)
11.00 Huston Street, Rockies (8.6)
10.98 Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers (9.3)
10.80 Jaime Garcia, Cardinals (7.3)

It's odd that the top guy had the lowest strikeout ratio last year of anyone on the list, although Garza did strik out 8.4/9 in 2009.   How far down do you have to go to find someone below 6.6 last year? Trevor Cahill at #17 (5.4, 2010).  Garza's numbers don't look all that great (0-1, 5.68 ERA, 20 H, 12.2 IP), but it's only 2 starts.  The Cubs should be encouraged by the fact that he has 20 SO and 3 BB in 12.2 IP, even if he struggled in his last start.
