Something to Digest

May 06, 2013 -- 10:58am

 

So today I got my Baseball Digest in the mail and found this small little snip it that I wanted to share.  I found it extremely interesting. 

 

“One of Roy Halladay’s few highlights in 2012 was notching his 2,000th career strikeout.  Among pitchers who have reached that plateau, the Phil’s ace now ranks third all-time in strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.78).  Here were the top 10 at the start of the 2013 season.”
