Special Consideration: Deadball Pitchers

Dr. Chaleeko goes through the careers of several deadball era pitchers to determine if they might deserve any “extra credit” when ranking them among the all-time greats. Pitchers considered in this article include Dazzy Vance, Sarge Bagby, Red Faber and two different pitchers named Urban.

Generally, big league teams knew where the brightest talent in the minors pitched, but sometimes talented hurlers could fall through the cracks, especially if their top-level results appeared meh. So we’ll start off a series within a series by looking at a few deadball pitchers whose shot at the big time didn’t come quite so easily.
