Control freaks

Posted at 1:06 PM on June 20, 2005 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

ESPN.com's Jayson Stark combs over the Twins pitching staff in Control freaks, an article which pulls out some amazing stats about Santana, Radke, and Silva's amazing walk and strike totals.

Any time you find yourself comparing a team to the 1876 Hartford Dark Blues and the 1906 White Sox, you know you're talking about a team that is, officially, from a whole 'nother era.

But that's where these Twins find themselves these days, throwing strikes at a rate that's unheard of in the 21st Century.
