LAD First half leaderboard – Strikeouts

The Koufax and Kershaw show with a ringer named Singer.  You have to fully expect Koufax to dominate this list but when you consider that Kershaw is getting about eight starts less per year than the pitchers from 1958 – 1982 it is amazing that he can get on the leaderboard using a cutoff of 150 strikeouts.

I missed the Bill Singer season in that I didn’t arrive in Los Angeles until 1970. That didn’t keep Singer from being my favorite pitcher in 1969 until he was traded to the Angels.
