We remember the great Nolan Ryan and say happy # 70.
His numbers are worth recalling: 324 wins, 3.19 ERA, 5,714 K and 7 no-hitters.
His wins have to be understood in the context of playing for .500 teams for much of his career. Ryan played in the 1969 World Series with the Mets. He did not get back to the playoffs until 1979 with the Angels. He returned with the Astros in 1981 and 1986. My point is that he won 324 wins for some mediocre teams, i.e. a .526 winning pct.
Ryan was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999.
