I hear this a lot - "The National League is a Fastball League, the American League is a Breaking Ball League."
Is this true? You'd think with all the Free Agent movements, the pitchers in both leagues would be pretty similar.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

It was this way - - I think it's changed.
AL was a BB league - because the pitcher couldn't take a chance with a FB in a hitters count with the smaller parks. Many parks in the NL are now HR parks - - thus, I think NL hurlers will bend one more often in a hitters count now - than in the past.
