Roger had a great comment in relation to his 24 losses in 1962. He claimed that if he wasn’t a good pitcher, he would not have been given the chance to lose that many games. That’s a good point. The quality level of a pitcher cannot be measured by his personal won-lost record. This is basically a reflection of what kind of team he plays for instead of how good he is individually. A pitcher can’t possibly get the win in a game unless his team gets it with him. When one is in the starting rotation for a ball club that sets a single-season record for defeats, chances are his W and L numbers will look dismal. Roger’s 10-24 mark in ’62 is not a sign of ineffectiveness on his part. If anything, it’s of a badge of honor that shows endurance and perseverance.

He got Jefferies out in the bottom of the 12th in Game 4 in the 1988 NLCS (What LUCK we have.)

Exceptionally bad with the Yanks and everywhere else except for the 88 Dodgers.

Plaque in Cooperstown? You’ve got to be joking! Jose may have impressive stats among all-time Mets players, but his career pales in comparison to shortstops enshrined in the Hall. If you want to call him “immortal”, remove the letter T from that word to describe what he really is. The Mets never should have brought him back.

Nolan is among the greatest pitchers of all-time, but he still has his critics. There are people who point to his personal wins and losses as a means of claiming that he wasn’t as good as he seemed to be. This is a weak argument on their end. Ryan pitched for an Angels team that finished below the .500 mark every year from 1972 to 1977, during which he set numerous records for strikeouts and pitched no-hitters on his way to shaping his Hall of Fame plaque. It’s extremely difficult for a pitcher (Steve Carlton in ’72 an exception) to accumulate a high winning percentage if his team doesn’t have one of its own. This has always been an unfair label placed on Nolan by those who emphasize a won-lost total, which is a team-related thing. They completely ignore all his accomplishments that made him the true legend he is!
