I have decided to begin a new series, running down the top 20 pitchers of each decade.
Why did I start with the 1970s, you ask?
This is largely considered the Golden Age of pitching, and it was not uncommon to see half a dozen 20-game winners each season.
My how times have changed.
Picking a top 20 was difficult. There were about 15 guys that were sure bets for this list, but the bottom five spots could have gone to about 12 different guys.
That said, I am sure there will be varying opinions on both who made the list, and where they were ranked.
I look forward to the debate and encourage you to voice your opinion.
On with the list...
