Thread: Two Sibling Pitching Records

  1. #1

    Two Sibling Pitching Records

    Here are two tough questions with the same answer.

    Both involve Major League games only.

    1. What siblings hold the combined sibling record for most pitching wins above .500 in a career?

    2. What siblings hold the combined sibling record for most complete games in a career?

    This is a toughie. I am sure someone out there will get it eventually.

    Cy Young and Carl Young. Cy was +195 and Carl (who never played MLB) was 0-0.

    For some reason I thought Irv Young was Cy's brother. That could be for either
    If not them then Phil and Joe Niekro for CG.

    What about Cy's other siblings, Otto, Lon, and Ella?

    Actually, a cuter guess would have been Cole Young using the first initial of each sibling.

    Phil and Joe (342 CG's) are well behind a number of pitchers by themselves.

    jared and jeff weaver?
    I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and cant run, most of the time hes clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. Dusty Baker.

    Phil and Joe Niekro? Combined they have over 500 wins and both pitched a career above .500.

    You guys are just too good. It was Cy Young and his siblings who never played Major League baseball.

    If his siblings never played major league baseball why did you ask a trivia question about two siblings' pitching record? You are really asking which pitcher holds the all-time record for the most complete games, and for the most wins above .500 if I interpret this correctly.

    The question didn't say they both had to play MLB. It's called a trick question.

    So the trick is to cleverly ask a question that purposely throws everyone off the right path, and then call it a tough question?

    And no one knows which two siblings tossed the most complete games, and had the most wins above .500 in their major league careers? Notice the major league careers is in bold so this one is not a trick question.

    There is nothing in the question that was deceitful. It never stated nor implied that both siblings had to have appeared in MLB. The question was asked and answered so how tricky could it be?

    What siblings have the highest winning percentage? My brother's and I are at 0/0 which is infinite. Anyone else? I also have the most total bases per out, and the most Ks per BB in history.

    Lots of MLB siblings have you beat. No wins and no losses does not give you an infinite winning percentage, for example.

    I'm not the one who said it was tricky. See #18.

    My sister and I are tied for the sibling record for the lowest complete games percentage in history.
