    A rookie.

              Ruth, Glavine, Ohtani


              Edit. Sh*t, Cy Young award started in the '50s.

              Scratch Ruth. Replace with Sandy Koufax.

                  Oh snap, really? How has he not had it?



                  I would have just gone Glavine, Maddux, Smoltz, but I don't remember Smoltzy having a good hitting career.

                  • If you only count the homeruns hit while pitching*, Ruth may not have 20 homeruns. Since Ohtani does not bat when he pitches AFAIK, he neither.

                    * I've always thought those records should be the ones that are relevant.

                      That's a good question. For some reason I seem to recall that Bob Gibson hit a bunch of home runs, but I don't know if he hit 20. Madison Bumgarner has hit a bunch of home runs, too. If I had to bet a modern guy, I'd bet on him. My guess is that it's a bunch of guys from the 50's to the 70's when pitchers from both leagues were hitting.
                      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                          Madison Bumgarner has also never won the cy.

                            Huh, interesting. I would have lost that bet. I would have guessed that he won at least one with SF.

                              2014 & 2016 he finished 4th in the voting. That's a close as he came.
                              A tip of the cap for mentioning Gibson though.

                                His big moments were more in the postseason. Lincecum however won two in a row before the WS years.
