Cy Young has the big pitching award named after him. Kid Nichols is history's most overlooked stellar pitcher. Lefty Grove absolutely dominated during an era of offensive explosion and would be the greatest pitcher ever expect he happens to come from the same planet as Walter Johnson. Johnson was good I sometimes have a hard time believing he really existed.

Come along and ride the big train.
