leave a comment »

On this day in 1914, Walter Johnson won the first of his 417 wins.     In 1936, Johnson was part of the first class inducted to The Hall of Fame.

Check out these awesome statistics: 417 wins, 2.17 career ER, 3509 Ks, 531 complete games and 110 shutouts.

He also lost 279 games!

Johnson had a .599 winning pct.   In other words, he lost 40% of his games.

How do you lose 40% of your games with a 2.17 career ERA? He must have had a lot of 1-0 or 2-1 complete game losses.
