In 1973, Ryan set his first major record when he struck out 383 batters in one season, beating Sandy Koufax's old mark by one. To this feat, Koufax remarked, "Yeah, and he also surpassed my total for bases on balls in a single season by 91. I suspect half of those guys he struck out swung rather than get hit."

bitter or correct?


Koufax pitched with pinpoint control at 100 mph, Ryan tended to be all over the place, which is not a bad thing, just not what Koufax was.

Oh he's absolutely correct, I'm not saying Ryan wasn't one of the most wild pitchers ever (maybe THE wildest "regular" pitcher). I just thought it sounded a bit like sour grapes when i read that quote.
