So, are you going to give the correct answer to the person who got one of the names right in the shortest time?

Well, I think the usual thing is for me to come up with another question and for the mods to lock this one, but that's up to them.

I say give credit to the first person that got both of them. :-D

Seriousily, this situation pops up every so often where the asker says "Name 1 person...." or "Who are the 5 players..." when in fact there are more than 1 (or 5) players that qualify. Usually the question is either from an old or an outdated source. In the future maybe we need to word the questions like "Who was the last person...." or "Who was the first player...." or in this case "Name at least one pitcher who pitched over 200 innings and had gave up less than 40 earned runs in two different seasons". By saying "Name at least one" covers yourself in case there was a second guy you weren't aware of. That way proper credit could be given to whoever said Maddux OR Brown first.

Just my two cents.

That's all good advice. Unfortunately in this particular case part of the problem was that I put too much thought into the question. I was looking at a list of great pitching seasons and saw that Maddux in '94-'95 allowed less than 45 runs in more than 200 innings, and as far as I know he is the only one to do that. But I started worrying that if I used runs allowed people would think I meant earned runs so then I changed the question without double checking. :-°

What I should have done is just what you said.
