Default The most underappreciated 8 year pitching stretch in MLB History?

IP ER W K CG SHO SVS ERA WHIP
2082 686 138 1143 99 22 53 2.97 1.18


He was a reliever FIRST for 3 years. I also could've skewed the percentage stats a LOT by leaving off the last two years that I included.

Modern pitcher, he also put up 49.5 WAR in those 8 years. One of the many interesting guys who gets no love.

If you want truly crazy numbers (even for a knuckleballer) he was a starter for basically 5 years. in those 5 years he won 106 games, pitched 1681.2 innings (WOW) 99 Complete Games and 22 shutouts. That's a career for a lot of decent pitchers.

Looking at his FIP and his ERA+ that was basically a function of the White Sox being awful. Like Niekro winning and losing 20 in the same season for the 70's Braves.
