Few Could Measure Up To The First Four Years Of Dwight Gooden’s Career…

It’s very rare that a player comes out of the gates at the rate at which Dwight Gooden did.  And to maintain high levels of play at such a young age is a true credit to his talent and skill levels.

And of all of the pitchers that have debuted since, the only one that comes to mind that may have similar first 4-season numbers would be Tim Lincecum…

As for Gooden’s first four seasons in the bis leagues, they went something like this:  124 starts, 73-26 record, 42 complete games, 16 shutouts, 892 strikeouts, 275 walks allowed, and an ERA of just 2.55.

Not too shabby, huh??
