I knew this actually. He was one I didnt guess. I thought for some reason Mark Langston did, and don't ask me why. lol

It seems a crime that he never got one. I wonder which year he was closest?

Wondered the same thing, so I looked it up. Ryan finished second to Jim Palmer in 1973. He went 21-16 with a 2.87 ERA and a career best 383 K's in 326 innings. He also threw two of his seven career no-hitters that season. That year Palmer went 22-9 with a 2.40 ERA. He only had 158 K's in 296.1 innings, but he did have six shutouts to Ryan's four.

Can't believe Mickey Lolich or Wilbur Wood never won a Cy Young or aren't in the HOF,especially Lolich. Those two would make 25-30 million a year these days!

Wilbur Wood was seriously underrated. In 1971, he had a WAR of 11.7! Imagine a pitcher starting almost 50 games and throwing over 350 innings today.

In comparison, Kershaw's best single-season WAR is 7.8. He might be a more dominant pitcher, but can only pitch about 200 innings per year.

Can't believe I got Bob Gibson but forgot Denny McLain. Go Cards!
