Ryan is known for 2 things, no hitters and k's. A no hitter has very little bearing on career numbers. Even 7 no hitters is only 7 games, out of the 807 Ryan was in. Tom Browning threw a no hitter, Seaver never did. It doesnt really matter.[/quote]

I agree; Ryan doesn't deserve to be there.

Ryan was an amazing strikeout pitcher but, issn't he also the career leader in Walks? I'm pretty sure he is, meaning he didn't have great control. One look at his overall record, shows that he is nowhere near as dominant as many think he was. Would an all-time top-5 pitcher have barely a winning record? I don't think so.

Actually he's known for 3 things. Remember when Robin Ventura charged the mound and Ryan threw him in a headlock and beat the tar out of him? :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
