Jayson Stark on Harang

Jayson Stark of ESPN.com just put up a pretty interesting article on the anonymity of Aaron Harang and Freddy Sanchez, reigning NL strikeout and batting champs.  I knew Harang had led the league in K's, but I have to admit, I had no idea Freddy Sanchez won the batting title last year.

It is interesting to me that players like these on small market teams lacking in recent success get absolutely no publicity.  It is also interesting to me that while this is essentially Stark's point, he's one of the members of the ESPN-opoly that helps create the attention deficit.

Anyway, it's a decent article with some pretty astonishing statistics regarding Cy Young award winners and strikeout/wins leaders like Harang.
