FYI - I added the last one to update the list.
Nov 24th, 2009 at 18:19 GMT
So Greinke has the highest WHIP, one of the lowest K totals, and tied for the lowest Wins... yet he makes the list? I mean, really only the 2.16 ERA is that impressive and other people have done that. I don't think he comes close to belonging here. Even Hershiser is a bit of a stretch--his scoreless streak record notwithstanding.

Greinke's WHIP and ERA are more impressive than some of the older ones because of the ultra offensive era he is playing in. Only 7 pitchers have posted ERA+s of or higher than 205 (Greinke's) since 1960.

Wins are a bad way to judge a pitchers performance. He played for a TERRIBLE team. But if you want to take into account games he probably would have won had he been on a team that didn't suck, let's do it. - In 4 GS, Greinke went at least 7+ IP, allowed 1 ER or less, and still received no-decisions. - Greinke received 3 losses in games that he gave up 2 or less earned runs. Just for arguments sake, let's say he pitches for a better offense and wins 5 of the 7 games listed above, and 3 losses are converted, would his 21-5, 2.16 ERA, seem more impressive?

What do you mean by "best"?
Dec 18th, 2009 at 16:05 GMT
"Best" was included in title of SI column. See source.

how is pedro's 99 season not included or left grove in the early 30's or hubbell 33?
Jul 10th, 2010 at 05:28 GMT
Thislist is nonsense. If it's supposed to be the best seasons why limit each pitcher to only one?

Too much time - finished with 4 minutes+ to go. Otherwise, it's a good quiz - it's all about trying to guess someone else's opinion about something.
