Mike Piazza should be on the Mets. Koufax, Drysdale and Campanella were better than Kershaw. Just my opinion.

Win shares are calculated by an algorytm, so if Piazza doesn't show it's simply because there are three guys that have scored better than him in Mets uniform.

You have to give us way more time, this is not a typing-race kind of quiz!

Fun quiz, way too little time though. I was also thrown by someone from the A's between 1925-1993. Lefty Grove must've been a sight to see pitching at 85 years old.
