      If chinese home run is right; please disregard my question (and chinese, if you're right on your fishing trip; fry up some of your catch!)
      no. I didn't.

        OE: No, you’re not.

        Are you “known” for never quite getting to 20 wins?

          I don't exactly know what you mean by "never quite getting to 20." But that's not what I am best remembered for.

            Yeah, my edited guess was Preacher Rowe, who I thought was known for saying stuff along the lines of not minding never winning 20 due to the pressure to do it again. But he had done it once.

            So, IDK, started to wonder if who you are is someone akin to a Mike Mussina who racked up a ton of 15-19 win seasons before getting a 20 win one in his final season, except obviously never getting to that threshold.

              Of course even Mussina finally got over the top with 20 wins his last season.
              Iunderstand your question now. The answer is no,

                        • Are you Johnny Rigney?

                          One of the clues was "bosses daughter" and he married Dorothy Comiskey, daughter of then White Sox owner J Louis Comiskey.

                            you got the right idea. But I'm not Rigney.
