interesting. what initially got me curious was looking at greg maddux's stats and seeing his 19-2 in 1995. incredible.

The best record during the season for a pitcher without a loss was 18-0 for Roy Face, but he lost his last decision.

Corrected as Face won 18 games, and not 19.

ah 18-1 in 1959. that is really impressive too but he threw less than 100 innings. i was thinking of starting pitchers but that is a great season too.

Randy Johnson finished a season 20-2, the best percentage for a twenty-game winner. Roger Clemens was once 20-1 late in the season, but lost his last two starts.

What would be impressive to see is Cliff Lee of the Indians, who is currently 13 - 2, end the season at his projected pace of 21-3.....for a last place team!

In 1978 Ron Guidry pitched 273.3 innings with a 1.74 ERA, his record 25-3.

That is LOUISIANA LIGHTNING!

The most amazing year for me was Steve Carlton's 1972 Season in which he won 27 of the team's 59 wins with a sub 2.00 ERA. Not being a Phillie nor a Carlton fan this one to me is just impressive. I do remember Face's season in 1959 and if I remember correctly his ERA wan't great and he blew a number of leads in which the Pirates came back and won the game.

Earl Hamilton set a record of sorts by going winless in 1917 (0-9) and undefeated (6-0) in 1918. Not a lot of decisions but kooky stats nonetheless.

Barry, Randy Johnson finished one season 18-2 and two years later was 20-4. In between he went 5-0 for a three year record of 43-6. Amazing!

I like Steve's recollection of Johnny Allen's 15-1 in 1937. He gets forgotten... That was the year the old rookie Jim Turner won 20 games.

Spud Chandler was dominate in 1943. 20-4.

Smokey Joe Wood had a really good year in there somewhere...



I go with Barry, Face had one fine year. And as best as I can tell, a game won in relief counts as much as a game won by a starter.

34-5, 1.91. Edited to add at age 22. He was done as a pitcher by age 25.

last year trever miller set a record after appearing in 76 games and ending the season with a 0-0 record for the Astros. the other side of greatness.

Also in Guidry's 1978 season he had 9 shutouts and his ERA was almost 2.00 lower than the league average.

In 1931 Lefty Grove went 31-4.
