Yep, Andy did it in 1996 and 2003 (21-8). Mussina in 2008 (already mentioned).

This list is suspect.

Andy won 21 in 1996 and 2003, so that's twice.

Well, even if you did miss Mike Mussina and Andy's other one, it's still an interesting list.

There's something about the early days of baseball that always captures my imagination, I wish we had more footage of it. I'd never heard of "Sad Sam" Jones before, they just don't do nicknames like they used to.

Anyway I looked him up. If anyone else hasn't heard of him, this is why he was called Sad Sam:

"Bill McGeehan of the New York Herald-Tribune dubbed him Sad Sam because, to him, Jones looked downcast on the field. Jones told Lawrence Ritter that the reason he looked downcast was because, "I would always wear my cap down real low over my eyes. And the sportswriters were more used to fellows like Waite Hoyt, who'd always wear their caps way up so they wouldn't miss any pretty girls."

Jones' sharp-breaking curve also earned him the name Horsewhips Sam. Like most pitchers of his day, Jones relieved as well as started, and his eight saves in 1922 led the AL. He lost a league-high 21 in 1925 as the Yanks dropped to seventh. Waived from St. Louis to Washington in 1927, Jones rebounded to top the 1928 Senators' staff with a 17-7 record. His 15-7 finish in 1930 marked his last outstanding season."

Mike Mussina had never won twenty games until the last season of his MLB career. Too bad he didn't hang around to win his first WS with he Yankees last season.

Believe it or not, there was another Sad Sam Jones who pitched for a while in the National League in the 1950's.
