PyroK's Strikeout Counter At The Half, And More!

Howdy! The name is PyroKinesis, and as you may or may not know, I am a big fan of the strikeout. Strikeouts are very exciting, especially when the closer comes on and strikes out the side to end the game. So, I figured I would post a nice little blog post in which I post the top 10 strikeout leaders on our team.

  1. Justin Masterson -|- 137
  2. Corey Kluber -|- 94
  3. Ubaldo Jimenez -|- 92
  4. Scott Kazmir -|- 80
  5. Cody Allen -|- 52
  6. Zach McAllister -|- 45
  7. Bryan Shaw -|- 36
  8. Rich Hill -|- 33
  9. Vinnie Pestano -|- 31
  10. Joe Smith -|- 30
Combined, the entire team has 770 strikeouts. That is pretty good.
I am also a fan of the HR ball. The reason? Tom Hamilton.

Pretty much everyone on our team has a HR aside from the pitchers. So instead of the top 10, I'll list the top 5.
  1. Mark Reynolds -|- 15
  2. Jason Kipnis -|- 13
  3. Carlos Santana -|- 11
  4. Ryan Raburn -|- 10
  5. Nick Swisher -|- 9
Team has combined to hit 104. It is interesting to note that, even though he hasn't hit many HRs since that scorching hot stretch at the beginning of the season, Mark Reynolds still leads the team by 2.

Finally, some thoughts on the first half, and thoughts on the second half. I think 51 wins is fantastic. Aside from that stretch where we just weren't winning games, when one player has cooled off, another one steps up and starts hitting. This offense is a beautiful thing to watch this season, and you truly feel like we are never out of any game, no matter what the score is.

Our record against the AL East has been abysmal, and our record against the Tigers is even worse. If we can shore those up, keep the pitching and hitting going, I say we will win not a Wild Card spot, NAY, but the AL CENTRAL DIVISION.

The second half will be fun folks, Buckle up. Let the games begin.
