...VR pointed this out in the game thread last night in reference to the NL, but, actually, it applies to both leagues:
at this frozen moment in time, before everyone takes their next turns to the mound, Harang leads MLB in strikeouts with 45.
It's a long way from here to there, but Harang's start, building off of what was a quietly very VERY good 2005, raises hopes for 220 innings and 200 or Ks from him. And it has been quite awhile since the Reds have had that kind of potential production at the front of the rotation, I think.
At any rate, just wanted to drop a note about the ace of this staff. He's good, and getting better...
Edited to add:
Oh yeah, only 11 BBs. That would be a 4:1 K:BB ration. And a 1.22 whip. You get on with your bad self, Harang.
