    Holding a pitcher accountable for how many runs his team scores is like holding the designated hitter accountable for how many runs his team allows.

    An individual statistic is meaningful only if it is based strictly on what the player does and not on what the other players on his team do.

    Contrary to what most baseball fans claim, a pitched ball which is hit into play is not a strike.

      First one I actually thought of - Rollie Fingers. Helps that my then 5YO cousin kept making jokes about it after I mentioned the name, and I still remember that.


      Others:

      Darryl Strawberry
      Joe Start (that's going way back!)
      ANyone with Smith? Is smith used much or do peole now just think of a blacksmith, locksmith, etc.? Of course, even those jobs aren't heard of much nowadays, but considering I went back to Joe Start I may as well go a bit further back.

            so I'll add these:

            Mickey Rivers
            David or any Wright
            Vic Power
            en espanol Luis Arroyo

                It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
