    I looked it up. Suprising. Spoiler alert.

    Jeter.

    Wow. I did mention Jeter, but he's certainly not who you think of as a high K guy. Must just be the innings accumulated.

    If you mentioned him, that's a good guess. Never would have occurred to me.

    Well I was just thinking longevity. That's why I mentioned Torri Hunter too.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Shallow fly out to Bruce. 2-1 Cubs. 115 pitches for Homer. I'll assume he's done and LeCure is coming in. Let's get some runs here boys. I'd love to see them steal a W for Homer.

    The list I found (which I assume is current) has two other active players in the top fifty career strikeouts: Giambi and Carlos Pena are in the top fifty also.

    Yeah, actually not a bad outing for Homer, overall, but now we need to see some offense.

    Carlos Pena about 100 behind Soriano. Torii Hunter about 150 behind Soriano.

    Some surprising names on that list. Guys I didn't realize hung around as long as they did.
    Mike Cameron & Reggie Sanders. I never would've thought they'd be that high.
