Okay, I'll put you out of your misery...
Koosman winning %'s
Chicago White Sox 2+ years (ages 38-40) .561Minnesota Twins 3 years (ages 36-38) .527Philadelphia Phils 2 years (ages 41-42) .513Mets 14 years (ages 24-35) .506
Yeah. 67 Seaver Roy68 Koosman loses by 1/2
Maybe Harvey and Wheeler can be this era's young 1-2.
Jones 22-14 (.611) 2.8 ERA
Kooz 21-10 (.677) 2.79 ERA
To be fair, Jones killed him on innings pitched (315 to 247)
Bench hit .275 with 15 hrs. Considering that Koosman pitched for a team that won 73 games, I think he should have won it anyway. I know it was the "year of the pitcher", but a .208 ERA was still nothing to sneeze at.
Seaver won the year before though, and the writers didn't want a Met winning two years in a row.
