Question 26 - Who Was I?

I 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.
