  • What was significant about Harry Krause?

    Someone was going to tell me about him, forgot and we haven't seen each other. What, exactly, should I know about Harry Krause?

    He was the topic of a very recent editorial by Keith Olbermann of "Countdown", who used him as an example of someone who was absolutely stellar in his earliest days, but rather rapidly became less than luminary. Evidently, his early pitching was genuinely phenomenal. See, e.g., his remarkable 18-8 season in 1909, with the A's, with a 1.39 ERA, which he began at only 19 years old.

      Here are Krause's career stats:

      In 1912, Krause returned to the minors with a sore arm and never returned to the majors. He went on to pitch 16 years in the Pacific Coast League, compiling 249 career wins in the PCL.
