Saw this on ESPN . Last night's game between the Yankees and WhiteSox was the first game in the modern era (post 1900) where both starting pitchers struck out 10 or more , walked none , and allowed 0 runs . I still dont think it has anything to do with the ball rather more the approach todays players take. Joe D had 360 something career k's. That' s 1 1/2 seasons for guys now.
