Walks in 2011



Average Walks Issued by Team
2011 - 501
2010 - 526
2009 - 554
2008 - 545
2007 - 536
2006 - 528
2005 - 507
2004 - 541
2003 - 530
2002 - 542
2001 - 527
2000 - 608

The number of players with 100+ walks in 2011 (5) was much lower than just a few years ago (11 in 2007).  That number is more similar to the 80's and early 90's than the late 90's or early 00's.  It makes sense, because pitchers are probably more likely to go after hitters now than in the steroid era.  Walks did go down in 2005 only to bounce back, so it's not a given than it will go under 500 per team in 2012, but it is a possibility.
