Sickest year for SP in last decade?

Postby Matt_Domsic » Mon Apr 05, 2010 12:03 am

No brainer? The now retired Randy Johnson's 2001 campaign would justify a #1 overall pick in standard 5x5 roto or h2h leagues nowadays.


2001 - Diamondbacks

Record / IP / SO / ERA / WHIP
21-6 / 249.2 / 372 / 2.49 / 1.01


Come on guys, show me some classic Pedro, Schilling, Clemmens, etc. lines.

Usually Johnson and Pedro went 1 and 2 back in the day. It changes things when you have a couple of pitchers with ERAs around 2, WHIPs around 1 and 300 K potential.

I think the 1999 season for Pedro was one of the greats of all time...How great?
23-4, 313k & 2.07 era for the pitching triple crown. I've been watching baseball for close to 40 years and have not seen a guy in 1 season that was more dominant than he was that season. That was the season he pitched in the AS game and blew away McGwire,Sosa & crew and made em look like JV's

5+ ERA was the league average that year.

Yep, I took RJ and Pedro in the top 3 in several drafts back in the day. I'm pretty sure I took RJ #1 in 2 or 3 drafts because having him means strikeouts are game over. The concept may seem foreign to you newbies who refuse to take pitching before round 15 but Aces who were that ridiculous are worth #1 overall picks.

Pedro was easily the MOST DOMINANT pitcher I have ever seen in my life time



Hands down. And I am soo old.
