    Yes, Steve Stone, and Dennis Martinez.

    Randy Lerch was 4-14, 5.16 for the 1980 Phillies.

    In the last 75 years, only three players with eight or more 20-win seasons have been elected to the HOF by the BBWAA. Who are they?

    If Warren Spahn isn’t one of them, I quit.

    first read this as three or more, and that sounded WAY low.

    Warren Spahn, Jim Palmer, Lefty Grove

    Shane Bieber has struck out 27 batters in his first two starts this season. Who's the only other pitcher to do that?

    No. And to be clear, it's 27 strike outs in the first two starts of a season. Not two consecutive starts.

    Yes, I got that.

    Randy Johnson would probably be a good guess, too.

    Herb Score?

    Johnson and Score are good guesses, but it's neither of them.

    Roger Clemens with his 20-strikeout game and something else?
