                Definitely getting into the 'borderline HOFers' now.

                Ok I'll bite....why Vance over Coveleski?

                      Not sure how much longer I'll be able to resist voting for Tommy Bond.

                          I can't say I entirely disagree. I do think they should definitely be included in this ranking, but I also think a separate ranking for relief pitchers -- many of which won't fit into the top 75 all-time -- could be interesting.
                          Put it in the books.

                              Drysdale was on an amazing team that had a .547 winning percentage for his career. Best in the NL for his career.

                              Yet, somehow, he faced better teams, overall, than almost any other starter with a long career. Alston leveraged him to the hilt!!

                              This is all pitchers since 1904, min of 2000 IP vs winning teams, expressed as a percentage of IP (versus their total career IP).
