Re: Can you explain why...
It's because pitchers that have high k rates tend to have better all around numbers.
As long as hitters other numbers are good it doesn't matter what kind of out they are, it's how many.
If a hitter has a OBP SLG line of 400/600 it doesn't really matter how he's making outs.
If a pitcher has a vs obp SLG line of 200/250 then he's probably k-ing a bunch of guys
