One More Note On One-Hitters

Including Robert Allen Dickey’s gem from Monday night, there have been six one-hitters completed by starting pitchers this season. There were seven such games in all of 2011. The record is 20 CG one-hitters in 1988.

If you make one-hitters a team effort, this season’s number jumps to 11. The past couple of years have seen some pretty high totals — 23 in 2010, 19 in 2011. The record for team one-hitters in a season is 24. Guess what year that was? Yeah, surprise, 1988.

Just bringing this up because we’ve had three one-hitters in the past six days, and we’re still a few weeks away from reaching the midpoint of the season. And if it keeps up, I’m sure you’ll have casual fans and pundits clamoring for baseball’s brass to fix this “problem.”
