Nolan Flipping Ryan?!??

  1. Neyer makes good points as always, but for a more fleshed-out discussion, read the Ryan entry in the New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract.

    James basically concludes that Ryan struck out so many because he tried to strike out every batter he ever faced. For example, he never took something off and let his defense work for him.
