SOURCE: Fangraphs monthly splits data, which starts in 1974. Data combines March/April and September/October. (For formatting reasons, I've simplified these to "Apr" and "Sep" in the quiz.) NOTES: 1) Quiz includes relief pitchers! 2) Many players are tied at 1.7 WAR. Lowest number of innings pitched is used as a tiebreaker. 3) Hall-of-Famers are denoted with *.
