In the history of MLB dating back to the 1880s, there has never been a full calendar month in which there have been more total strikeouts than hits across all teams. April 2018 will be the first.

Does that stat reflect the decline it batters hitting ability or a rise in pitching ability?

It’s just a completely different game. Everyone swings for the fences even with 2 strikes because sabermetricians say that’s more likely to win you a game than pretty much ever trying to hit a single. And starters are usually only allowed to go through a lineup twice before a new flame-throwing reliever comes in, so every batter is always facing a fresh pitcher.

So people who never played the game ruined the game just like they did the NBA cool

Who or what led to the downfall of the NBA? I haven’t watched since Jordan wore #23 on the bulls

They're swinging for the fences, but not because of metrics. They just do what they see everybody else doing. They want to hit HRs and there's no longer a stigma about a huge strikeout total, so they're trying to blast everything. When was the last time you saw a hitter choke up on the bat? It's all or nothing now.

It's also that pitchers throw harder now, the game has come down to bullpen specialists, with multiple 100 mph throwers coming out with fresh arms late in games. 90mph sliders etc.

It's crazy that they're have been 3 no hitters already this year.
