Justin Verlander has been the most dominant pitcher in baseball and has the American League Cy Young award locked up. Verlander ends the season as the AL leader in wins (24), ERA (2.40), strikeouts (250), WHIP (.92) and innings pitched (251).
Verlander certainly has been dominant, but where does his 2011 season make the cut as one of the 10 most dominating pitching seasons in Major League history?
*Note: For the sake of argument, this list only takes into account pitchers active in the live ball era (post-1918). If not, this would essentially be a list of the career accomplishments of Cy Young, Christy Matthews, Hoss Radbourn and Walter Johnson.
