With the exception of his rookie and final year, he never had an era over 4. 8 of those year he was under 3, and a lot of those over 3 years were JUST BARELY over 3, and yet he only won 20 or more games in a season twice.... Those were the years he was actually getting close to 400 Ks.

Pretty amazing he such an amazing amount of CG in that stretch. A little less amazing considering he led the league in complete games only once in his career.
1972 39 GS 20 CG 9 SHO 18 Wins
Two CG losses. One CG Loss he gave up 7 runs the other was 2-1 loss to Oakland (Blue Moon Odom, Vida Blue and Rollie Fingers). Had 6 starts he didn't make it out of the 4th inning (16.1 IP - 24 ER). Had 2 games where he gave up 6 runs or more.
1973 39 GS 26 CG 4 SHO 21 Wins
Lost in 6 CGs, he gave up 6 runs, 4 runs (twice), 3 runs, 2 runs (twice). Had 6 games where he gave up 6 or more runs.
1974 41 GS 26 CG 3 SHO 22 Wins
Lost in 9 CGs, he gave up 6 runs (twice), 5 runs (twice), 3 runs, 2 runs (3 times), and a 1-0 11 inning game against Lolich (who also pitched 11 innings). Had 9 games where he gave up 6 or more runs (one of them he did win).
1975 28 GS 10 CG 5 SHO 14 Wins

Ventura is never going to live that down.

California was a better pitcher anyways
Despite Ryan's longevity and statistics, his legacy has been questioned due to his many losses--for his career, he was only 32 games over .500, and his "average" season saw him post a record of 13-12--to some extent justifying Bavasi's criticisms. By comparison, Koufax was 78 games over .500 in a much shorter career, and Cy Young 195 games over .500. His 292 losses rank him third overall, and first among pitchers who played entirely after 1900. He ranked in the top ten in the league in wins eight times, and in losses eight times. Despite the common belief that Ryan played mostly for bad teams, his teams (disregarding Ryan's own wins and losses) had a .503 winning percentage over his career (.506, if you disregard the 1966 New York Mets for which he pitched three innings and which lost 95 games). Thus, his winning percentage was only, at best, .023 better than the teams he played on (Walter Johnson, by comparison, was better by .107 than the teams he played on) He had little success in leading teams to the postseason, making it there only five times, and only once to the World Series--as a rookie with the Mets. Despite his spectacular statistics in the area of strikeouts, each counted only as one out, and his no-hitters each counted as only one win.
