Year of the Pitcher- Round Two


With Santana, Humber, Weaver, combined Mariners, and now Cain, it's been a very good year for pitchers. That makes five no-hitters, and it's only June. Heck, if it weren't for minor details, I'd add Dickey and Verlander to that list, but unfortunately they were held to one hitters. 

The translation here- it's becoming shockingly difficult to focus on hitters. I guess that means progress in the decade following the steroid years. 

The big, strong, ball-bashers no longer matter. The fellows who stop them do.
