LF: Charlie Jamieson
One of the toughest Sporcle answers I've ever encountered. Jamieson is 5th all-time in hits by a Cleveland Indian.
The pitching staff is quite good.
No hitters have amassed amazing stat totals in an Indians uniform. The career leader in games played is another guy you may have never heard of, with 1619 (Nap Lajoie has 1614).
No hitters have amassed amazing stat totals in an Indians uniform.
But their pitching is extremely impressive, perhaps the best of any team.
Doesn't really seem that impressive. Gotta be a number of teams that are better than that. The Red Sox and Giants off the top of my head.
The Indians' #10 guy in IP is Sam McDowell with over 2100. The Red Sox have Lefty Grove with 1539. The Red Sox have 3 guys with over 2700 IP. #4 has fewer than 1800. The Giants' #10 guy has about the same as McDowell, but 3 of them are pre 1900.
Umm, so you are just referring to quantity? I don't find innings pitched totals all that impressive, especially with changing environments over the years. I'll take the Red Sox or Giants guys based on quality and overall value over the Indians list any day.
Grove had 1539 IP at a 143 ERA+. That's a big quality advantage too, I'd say it puts him at least better than Lemon or Wynn.
The Giants blow them both out of the water with 492 WAR. There is a lot of 19th century in there but they pull out a win using just 20th century too with 419 WAR. Looks like the Red Sox still win easily on peak so might take the overall title. (Somebody who cares can do the digging :-)
