So far this year in 24 1/3 innings of work over 4 starts, Jon Garland has managed to strike out 3 batters. Yes, 3. I'm not an expert on matters statistical or historical, but I would hazard a guess that that's on the low side of what you might expect from a starting pitcher.
If he pitches 200 innings this year, he's on target for 25 Ks (if you round him up), which I suspect might be an all-time low (does anyone know how to check this?).
So my question is simple:
1. How many strikeouts will Garland deliver in 2008?
