Dominant Pitching in 2014?


20+ IP, 8.25+ K/9, 4 BB/9 or fewer (# of pitchers)
1930 - 0
1940 - 0
1950 - 0
1960 - 2
1970 - 9
1980 - 6
1990 - 18
2000 - 21
2004 - 56
2009 - 67
2010 - 83
2011 - 91
2012 - 120
2013 - 135
2014 - ?

If the numbers keep heading in this direction, there will eventually be more pitchers in this group than out of it.  The number of pitchers in this group has skyrocketed for both starters and relievers, but the bulk of the increase obviously has come from relievers.  This is becoming like hitting 20 home runs was during the steroid era for a position player.  What was once something done only by elite players is now expected of pretty much everyone.

It's not very surprising that there are more pitchers with high strikeout numbers.  As bullpens are staffed with more young fireballers than old retreads, it make sense that there would more high-strikeout pitchers.  It's a little surprising, though, that their walk totals have been going down as well.  The steroid testing has probably helped pitchers in several different ways. 

The hitters aren't putting up the same numbers and the pitchers aren't intimidated.  More and more young pitchers are like what we saw Trevor Rosenthal do in the postseason.  They throw their heat over the plate and dare the hitters to make contact.  The increase in the number of pitchers with high strikeout and low walk totals over the past ten years has been astonishing and it might not be stopping anytime soon.

  1. một quả lôi cầu, đánh thẳng vào ngân quang.

    Một loạt tiếng ầm ầm vang lên khắp thiên địa. Lôi Oa gầm nhẹ một tiếng, lùi lại mấy trăm trượng. Vương Lâm sắc mặt âm trầm, thân thể bay lên, đạp lên đầu Lôi Oa, ngẩng đầu nhìn nữ tử phía sau ngân quang.

    - Hồng Điệp!

    Vương Lâm gằn từng chữ.

    Vừa rồi hắn đắm chìm trong huyễn tượng, nữ tử này không biết xuất hiện khi nào, không ngờ lại chẳng nói một lời đánh lén hắn. Nếu không phải thần thức Vương Lâm đã đạt tới Hóa Thần hậu kỳ thì hẳn sẽ cho rằng sẽ cho rằng ngân quang đó là ảo ảnh, cuối cùng bị nữ nhân này giết chết ngay tức khắc.

    Khuôn mặt Hồng Điệp lạnh như băng, ánh mắt lộ vẻ bình tĩnh, bình thản nhìn Vương Lâm, chậm rãi nói:

    - Ngươi quả nhiên biết ta. Nói đi, ngươi rốt cục là ai?

    Ánh mắt Vương Lâm bình tĩnh, nhìn chằm chằm vào nữ nhân này, cười nói:
