  • The first number is four..

    Take this pitcher's career walks and add a decimal point and you have his career era.
    You can also add a decimal point to his career strikeouts and have his career era.
    The first number is four. If there's more than one, I'd be surprised.... who is it?

    I looked it up because I knew I had no chance of guessing it. I don't see how anyone could get this without cheating.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

        I'm with Giambi - this is impossible. there have to be 1,000 guys with walk and k numbers in that range. Probalby would have been better in the "did you know" thread

        I looked it up to, and can't imagine anyone getting it. I was curious if anyone had this kind of anomaly moving the decimal one more space. Phil Neikro is the closest with 3,342 strikouts and 3.351 career ERA.
