Hoyt Wilhelm had an ERA+ for his career that was a whole lot better than any single season that Jack Morris ever posted. Reliever/starter of course. Wilhelm had an ERA+ of 150 or better in 12 seasons. That is equivalent to the ERA Johnny Cueto posted this past season (152 ERA+ in 2012). He was over 170 eight different times. That is the equivalent of what Cueto posted in 2011 (171 ERA+).
Basically, Wilhelm was incredibly elite for a very long time and when he wasn't elite, he was still very good.
Jack Morris was never elite and was actually quite below average for a decent chunk of his career too.
