2008 vs. 2009 – Pitching

    I think the Washington Nationals are dominating, using these criteria for starting rotations.  According to ESPN, the Pirates starters are 19th (13th in the NL) in whiff to walk ratio at 2.89.  The Nationals are second, to Philadelphia at 3.68.

    Strikeouts tell the same story.  The Pirates starting rotation comes in almost dead center of the pack at 16th in the majors (13th in the NL).  Again, the Nationals are second (first in the NL) with a rate of 8.13 whiffs per 9 innings.

    The Pirates may be dominant in the home run criterion.  They are sixth in the majors (also sixth in the NL).  The Nationals are first in the majors and the NL.

    If the Pirates starters are dominant, then half the league is.

    Why is 6 K/9 the key number? Right now there are 27 teams in Major League Baseball average 6 strikeouts per nine innings. There is nothing special about that number. The Pirates are 14th in the majors in K/9. This is not dominant. This average.
