Yeah.
67 Seaver Roy
68 Koosman loses by 1/2

Maybe Harvey and Wheeler can be this era's young 1-2.

Koosman I think won 21 and Jones 22. Both had under 2.80 era I think with maybe Koosman besting Jones.

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)

If Jon Niese could be a Koosman type we would have something.
People don't realize how good Jerry Koosman was.
Never forget 1969. First inning Bill Hands Knocks down Tommie Agee. Next inning Koosman breaks Ron Santos hand. He showed everyone you are not pushing us around. What a tough, tough pitcher.

Yeah, that game was electric. I've always regarded it as the pivotal game of that season.
Lose andwe'd be 3-1/2 back, and the Cubs might very well have taken the momentum back.

His rookie year he won 19 games. If he had gotten his 20th, he probably would have beat Bench for ROY.

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.

Never stopped the Dodgers winning it several years in a back in 1992-96.
