Camilo Pascual - Strikeout Leader X 2

I received a very quick return today from former-Twin Camilo Pascual.

Mr. Pascual was the AL Strikeout Leader for three years in a row from 1961 - 1963.  He actually had his second-highest strikeout total in 1964, but was beat out by Al Downing, who had 217, just three more than Pascual.

Oddly in looking at the pitching leaders for these years, the NL pitchers had many more strikeouts, including Bob Veale in 1964 who had 250!

This year for the Twins, Ervin Santana had 149 strikeouts, while the Twins' number two strikeout leader was Duffey, with just 114.

Back in 2006, Johan Santana led the majors with 245 strikeouts.  I miss those days!

Anyway, next I'll send these cards off to Jim Bunning.
