Set record for most strike outs in the American League

Why he might be annoying
He keeps bullying Mike Piazza.
He named all four of his sons starting with the letter K, including Kody.
Because of the Piazza incident as a Yankee he purposedly avoided pitching at Shea Stadium where he would have to bat. Eventually he did pitch and bat at Shea, but when pitcher Shawn Estes, threw at him, it was wild and missed by a mile (June 15, 2002).
The New York Yankees were forced to trade fan favorite David Wells in order to obtain him.
He avoided retirement as a New York Yankee and signed with the Houston Astros (2004).
He was indicted on charges of making false statements before Congress about using performance enhancing drugs (August 18, 2010).
A mistrial was declared due to prosecutorial misconduct (July 14, 2011).
Why he might not be annoying
He is one of the most exciting pitchers in baseball.
He twice struck out 20 players in a game (April 29, 1986 and September 18, 1996).
He touches the head of Babe Ruth's monument every time he pitches at Yankee Stadium.
He stuck on his 4,000th batter the same day he won his 300th game, all on a Friday the 13th (June 13, 2003).
