Cool stuff.

 

Picking nits, Gaetti is older than Franco(though Franco obviously played at an older age. And Fernando Martinez and Andrus are older than Snider.

 

Younger?

 

Yeah I was wondering how it was all done. What is the vut off for oldest and youngest. If the guy gets in one game in 2000 is he eligible for oldest? Also what are the cut offs for minimums? Like the minimum at bats for avg or innings for era. Like Pedro's ERA of 3.01. There are a lot of relievers who probably got to 800-1000 and had a lower ERA. Heck Mariano had around 700 innings in the 2000's and ERA around 2.00.

Frank Thomas if given real weight may have challenged that weight later in his career. What was Mo Vaughn at at the end?

Quality Starts: Javier Vazquez - 193

 

If you'd have given me 20 guesses, I don't think I'd have come up with this one.

 

I would have guessed Roy Halladay.

 

yeah, my first guess as well. Second guess probably would have been Pettitte.

 

Nah. I probably would have gone with Johan Santana, Brandon Webb, Roy Oswalt, John Lackey and maybe Schilling ahead of Pettitte. I might have even included Pedro in front of Pettitte as well.

 

What's weird about Vasquez is that he's had a few really solid seasons and a lot of mediocrity in between.

Vasquez is definitely a shocker, no doubt.

 

Of all those listed:

 

 

 

Oswalt - 185

Pettitte - 175

Santana - 156

Pedro - 149

Schilling - 144

Lackey - 138

Webb - 132

he just has a lot of years with a decieving era. i'm not sure if it's bad luck or whatever, but he has a lot of season where his era doesn't really match up with his stats. i know he gives up a lot of home runs, but still.

 

when you have a career WHIP of 1.24 and k/bb of almost 3.5/1 in about 2500 innings, you've had more than a few solid seasons.
