posted 16 wins in my rookie year of 1967 for the last place
New York Mets and was voted the Rookie of the Year, winning
16 games, recorded an ERA of 2.76 while fanning 170 hitters.
In 1969, I helped the Mets win the World Champions, going
25-7 in the regular season. In 1971, I led the National
League with a tiny 1.76 ERA and was 20-10.
I also was a star pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds from
1978-1985 and won my 300th game as a member of the Chicago
White Sox on August 4, 1985. In my career I won 20 or more
games 5 times and won 3 Cy Young Awards. Many historians
ranked me as one of the top pitchers of all-time. I was
elected to the Hall of Fame.
