RIP Tom Seaver

Recommended Posts

I’m a Yankee  fan and I’m choked up. GREATEST Met ever, and no close seconds. 
 

All class, all the time. Would have won 350 games has the Mets scored 2 runs for him. 
 

Tom Terrific.

I’m a Yankee fan.  But is it fair to say Tom is the greatest NY pitcher ever????   I think it is.  Ford, Rivera etc.   But Seaver was amazing.

(sigh) typical bass player :)... 

(EDIT: OOPS ! Typical guitar player ! Jumped the gun and didn't see that you actually agreed that he is. 1,000 apologies. I'll turn down my amp now and even let you play a solo)

WAR for Pitchers:

Seaver 106.0 (7th all time)

Ford 53.6 (86th all time)

Rivera 56.3 (79th all time)

CY Young Awards for best picther of the year:

Seaver 3 (and was robbed of 2 more)

Ford 1

Rivera 0

Will concede Rivera as greatest closer of the modern era but they are not as valuable as a starter that closes himself

So Seaver vs Ford

Wins/SO/ERA/WHIP 

Seaver 311/3640/2.86/1.121

Ford 236/1956/2.75/1.215

 

Seaver pitched with little support, Ford pitched with, well the 50's-60's Yankees

 

 

I aired this question today to many of my colleagues at the golf club and the ONLY name that got mention was Koufax in his prime.  Im a Seaver Believer, LOVED him!!!!
