For every Sandy Koufax super season there was a Willie Davis crummy season on the other side of the coin, or a Juan Marichell/Hal Lanier.
I remember watching Koufax strike out 15 in the first game of the 63 series in that "extreme pitchers park", Yankee Stadium . With the possible exception of Goose Gossage, I've never seen a pitcher throw faster and with so much movement on his pitch. And he did it for nine innings. Maris never had a chance, and he knew it.
