It is safe to say that 1995 is the greatest season by any pitcher that you or I have witnessed first hand. I won’t regurgitate the numbers … well, maybe a few. A 19 and 2 record? A 1.63 ERA? An ERA+ of 262? A WHIP of only 0.811?
The mystery isn’t that Greg Maddux thoroughly dominated the League (again) and won the Cy Young Award (again). The mystery is that he only finished third in the MVP voting.
