I know this is going to sound like sacrilege but, I actually think strikeouts are overrated. If a pitcher can consistently induce weak contact, I think that's just as good as a strikeout and could potentially save a pitcher's arm.

And I get that a strikeout takes defense out of the equation, but there's a reason a pitcher has seven guys behind him.
