Why not Leo? Posted by Mac Thomason | Apr 17, 2004 | Links | 3 ESPN.com – MLB – Neyer: Mazzone for the Hall? If they ever do start inducting pitching coaches, he’s an obvious pick. Share:
Leo should be a lock. His track record is unmatched. Johnny Sain had more 20-game winners, for sure, but he also had them before there were 30 teams in the league, thus diluting the pitching talent… and before the advent of the current crop of 6-innings-if-you’re-lucky, but gotta-have-4 -days’-rest pitchers.
I’m at the wrong site for this, but to provoke discussion, what about Perranoski?
I don’t think he’s quite at that level. He had some good years with the Dodgers, but you have to remember that Dodger Stadium makes most pitchers look good.
