You got 3 starters like that and win 1 series, that's a damn shame.
So do you want to discredit Griffey, Bonds, Ted Williams, Ichiro, Mattingly, Fisk, Gwynn and any other number of hall of famers who never won any
? It's remarkably hard to win just one title, let alone several. To lay the blame at the feet of an individual for a lack of team success (which the Braves didn't even have
) is flawed. He won the series once, pitched in the series five times
, and pitched in the NLCS nine
times, with fantastic postseason numbers. There's only so much you can lay at a guy's feet before you're just reaching.
