    These two Hall of Fame pitchers both won the Cy Young once -- yet never received a Cy Young vote in any other year. Name the two pitchers.

    I'm going to guess Early Wynn as one of them

    And you are correct. That's one.

    Would the second be Whitey Ford?

    Nope, not Whitey. Besides winning in 1961, he finished 3rd to Don Newcombe in the inaugural Cy Young vote in 1956.

    I remember watching Wales play Ireland in Six Nations about 10 years ago and at least 3/4 of the Wales side was named either 'Evans' or 'Davies.'

    Dammit. Missed that part of the question.

    Was it John Smoltz? I seem to remember him often being overlooked because of the dominance of Maddux, Johnson and Glavine.
