    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

    I go with '66 Koufax

    Certainly the most dominating final season of a pitcher's career.

      In 1963, Koufax pitched 10 shutouts, including a no hitter, and beat the Yankees twice in the World Series, and was Cy Young, MVP and World Series MVP, no other player has pulled this trifecta ever
      Last Player to hit for the Cycle: Matt Kemp, San Diego Padres (August 14, 2015)

      Last Pitcher to throw a Regular Season No-Hitter: Max Scherzer, Washington Nationals 2-0 (October 3, 2015)

      Last Pitcher to throw a Postseason No-Hitter: Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 (October 6, 2010)

        Not a Dodger fan here.................but Sandy, would never bet against him.
        Seemed like he was in another league all by himself.

          Although Koufax's 1966 season was better than 1963, I'll go with 1963 due to all the accolades. In order:

          1. Koufax 1963
          2. Koufax 1966
          3. Koufax 1965
          4. Ford 1961
          5. Chance 1964
          6. Drysdale 1962
