A bit of a side bar question. How many outs on average have been recorded by strikeout by decade? Is it higher now than ever? For the first three or four decades of the 20th century, only a handful of guys struck out over 100 times a season. Yet a guy like Rube Waddell struck out 349 batters in 1904. How does that strikeout rate, when compared to the number of outs by strikeout, compare to some of Ryan's better seasons?
