A lefty sidearmer is not storming the nation with his maniacal skills. And he’s broken the record for most consecutive strikeouts. Okay, I don’t know if he’s got the record. But Mitch Stetter deserves respect. Mitch Stetter deserves your love.
I mean, 11 consecutive strikeouts even over five games is a rich tapestry of quality. Think about it. Nolan never struck out 11 in a row. Tom Seaver never struck out 11 in a row. Roger Clemens can’t say that.
But you know what? Mitch Stetter can. And even in only three paragraphs? Mitch Stetter deserves a shout-out. And I am going to give it to him.
