People nowadays only worry about offense in sports. It seems that way at least. Long forgotten are the days of close, low-scoring games. Or, could they actually be making a comeback?
Though many MLB ballparks today are dominated by high-scoring games with offense in mind, there are some pitcher-friendly parks. Places like Atlanta's Turner Field and San Diego's Petco Park are pitchers' paradises.
As we saw in 2010 though, maybe the pitcher is making a comeback. To put it bluntly, 2010 was "The Year of The Pitcher." There were a handful of no-hitters and even two perfect games. Philadelphia's Roy Halladay had a banner season with both a no-hitter and perfect game.
