    Pedro Borbon had six straight seasons of over 120 IP as a reliever for the Reds. 3.02 ERA during that time. Didn’t have an ERA over 3.35 during that stretch.

    No one can top that.

    Don't think that's accurate re Henry. In 1961 he had 16 saves. As did the Professor. Both finished 34 games. I recall Hutchinson using them as the percentages dictated. For example, I recall numerous games where Henry struck out Eddie Matthews with two outs and the tying run on base. he really had Matthews number.

    Henry and Brosnan are two of my all time favorites.
