These days dudes strike out 12 times before the weekend series is even over.
Dimaggio and Williams (among others, obviously) had some staggering statistics in that area, too. In '41, Dimaggio struck out 13 times in over 600 at bats while hitting .357 and slugging .643.

One thing about Ryan, though, is learned to pitch with control and dramatically reduced his walks as he matured. By the end of his career his BB/9 was generally hovering in the mid-3's while his K/9 averaged around 10.

i heard a story about ryan not ever wanted to "give in" to hitters.  and in his mind, "giving in" meant giving up a hit.  he'd rather walk someone than risking giving a hit.  that probably at least partially explained that he walked over 200! batters a year.  in contrast, i think kershaw's bb/9 is around 1.6 in the last few years.  i think the definition of 'giving in' is now changed to allowing a walk.

Yankees are fucked. Keuchal has 0 ER in 16 innings against the Yankees this year.

Well the season is over ... I guess it's the all-important time to tally up who sold the most jerseys this year! Oh wait… no, this is LA, we have playoffs to worry about.

Apparently every pitch Keuchal throws is automatically a strike...

hah. well. about half of them were not strikes.  the yanks kept swinging and missing them. so that kinda forced the ump's hand a little...hard to call it a ball with a swing and miss sometimes...
