Haven’t You Figured It Out Yet?  Iwakuma Is A Dominant Pitcher

8 Innings Each In First 3 Starts Says It All It’s simply amazing to me just how little people take notice of a pitcher like the Seattle Mariners‘ Hisashi Iwakuma.  It’s almost like if you can’t throw it 95 MPH and strike out at least a dozen per game, you can’t be considered a dominated pitcher.
