  1. Steve is the fourth winning-est Jewish pitcher behind Ken Holtzman, Sandy Koufax, and Jason Marquis. He sold his soul to the devil (ruining his arm) for one year of greatness, a move I don’t think he regrets. His signature seems to match his personality. A very good broadcaster, loved him with Harry, but can’t stand Hawk (and I’m not a Sox fan any ways.)
