You really have to consider that Koufax won 3 Cy's in 4 years unanimously at a time when there was one award for all of MLB....

Rich is currently the Managing Editor for Sports Unbiased: http://sportsunbiased.com
Rich grew up in a small town in northwestern Connecticut. Then he spent 10 1/2 years in the United States Air Force, travelling the world and serving this great country.
He is an avid baseball fan especially the historical and analytical side.
Rich started out writing for Informative Sports, then moved on to the Sports Nickel (http://sportsnickel.com) and is now a MLB and New York Yankees Featured Columnist for the Bleacher Report as well.
Rich is an avid Yankee fan, but is able to analyze them and keep the homer goggles off while he does so.
He does his best to keep all his personal feelings and bias out of his writing - he calls it like he sees it.
He's very opinionated but if you can bring a strong argument you might just be able to get him to change his mind. He looks deeper into stats and doesn't just rely on what the numbers are - he will always try to ask, why are the numbers that way?
Rich figures out who the greatest players in baseball history at each position are and then ranks them overall for the Sports Nickel: http://sportsnickel.com/2010/07/16/mlbs-greatest-players-by-position/

Yo, wanted to check in and say hows it goin? All is good here? Still keepin up with any of the old Daywalkers?
Hey man I wrote an article about the Top 10 Pro Athletes Who Would Make Good UFC Fighters. Would love to hear what you think man. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/817080-10-pro-athletes-that-would-make-good-ufc-fighters
Hi Rich, someone named Matt A wrote an article that said Pedro Martinez is the most dominating pitcher in baseball history. Do you think you can write an article telling why he's not because I think he shouldn't even be in that conversation. But its fine if you actually think he is more dominating than Walter Johnson, Christy Matthewson, and Bob Feller.
Just wrote a new article and was wondering if I could get some feedback from you. I value you're writing analysis and wanted to see what you thought of it.
Here's a post-deadline (Nov) bad deal for you: Reds traded Paul O'Neill to the Yankees for Roberto Kelly in 1994.
I just joined Bleacher Report as a writer a few days ago and I think I will more likely than not be writing about the Yankees primarily. I saw you were a featured columnist and I wondered if you had any advice as I get started.
Also, I don't know how many people actually remembered but today is the 1 year anniversary of George Steinbrenner's death and I wrote an article about it.
Check it out:
You went a little overkill on Tom Yawkey. Okay, he had poor judgement with his holdup on his first black ballplayer after Jackie Robinson. You have to prepare lots of arrows, however, if you're going to go after "embarrassing ballplayers" based on weak evidence like that. Commissioner Landis deserves much on the same subject. I wish Pete Rose would act more of his age today, and keep the humble attitude going - it's embarrassing to me that he has a Playboy girlfriend, dumped the wife who stood by him since before he got kicked out of baseball, and he STILL believes he should be able to manage a ballclub. IF Rose would come across the way he should, I believe Selig would allow him back...on a limited basis. I've always been a Rose fan - can you tell, BUT I don't believe he should ever be in a place to run a ballclub again. I would like to see him in Baseball's Hall Of Fame...before he dies. I doubt that will happen, but it's time MLB show a little charity in cases like this. The same goes for Shoeless Joe Jackson as well. This would be fair and proper, since - as you've noted - MLB is hardly blameless or perfect, and neither are the stars that have made the game since it was founded.
