Galarraga and Joyce provided the most memorable game of the year

Some writers—no doubt emboldened by four no-hitters, two perfect games and one near-perfect game—have christened 2010 as the "year of the pitcher."  (Never mind that 1968 was really the "Year of the Pitcher," with four no-hitters, one perfect game and a scoring environment nearly a run per game lower.)

The Indians witnessed perhaps the best-pitched game of 2010, when Armando Galarraga dispatched the Tribe with great haste.  Had Jim Joyce gotten the call right, Galarraga would have completed a perfect game in just 83 pitches. Even if every Indians hitter had looked at three straight strikes, they would have spared Galarraga only two pitches of effort.

Tribe hurlers were rarely so commanding or efficient last season, but they had their moments.  Here are the top nine pitching performances by Indians of 2010.
