BDD: On Ryan Howard and Brad Lidge

I will be starting a weekly segment updating Ryan Howard’s strikeouts: how many he’s on pace for in a full season, and where his K-total ranks among the game’s elite starting pitchers. Currently, he has more strikeouts (32) than every starting pitcher in baseball except Johan Santana (also 32).

I tackled this issue previously, but given Lidge’s early-season success, it was worth mentioning again: Brad Lidge quiets those amateur psychoanalysts who think he was mentally anguished by Albert Pujols’ three-run homer in Game 5 of the ’05 NLCS.
