                    If you didn't give the "alliterative" hint, I'd still be looking.

                      Once it's known, it's so obvious: "Which pitcher since 1971 is most likely to have 90% quality starts and least likely to come to mind as a pitcher who would have 90% quality starts?" How many posts have there been about what a schlub Reuschel is and how ridiculous his high pitching WAR?

                      Pretty slick.
                      Indeed the first step toward finding out is to acknowledge you do not satisfactorily know already; so that no blight can so surely arrest all intellectual growth as the blight of cocksureness.--CS Peirce

                        I really liked the Tudor guess. But when Ben guessed Reuschel I said- aha! I saw Reuschel pitch many times in 85- I attended about 20 Pirates games in 85, the most I've gone to in a season- and also a lot on TV. Reuschel was outstanding in 85. Excellent excellent pitching on a bad team. He really new what he was doing. Also, he blessedly worked quickly- lots of his games, as I recall were in the low 2 hour range.
