Richie Gardner would probably still be pitcher of the year. Before he got hurt he threw 156.2 innings with a 2.53 ERA between A+/AA with 26 walks and 139 strikeouts.
Same for Thomas Pauly. 2004 saw a 2.97 ERA in 121.1 innings, 26 walks and 135 strikeouts.
Those aren't pedestrian numbers. Those are outstanding numbers.
